Tuesday, Jan. 20, was a significant day. Not just because a president was inaugurated, but for the community of Berthoud and much of Northern Colorado it was the day we gave honor to a soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Justin L. Bauer was laid to rest at Greenlawn Cemetery, east of Berthoud.
Last week I led the House of Representatives in a moment of silent tribute for Staff Sgt. Justin Bauer. Upon being sworn in as senator on Thursday, I had the honor of leading the Senate in another moment of silent tribute. This week I plan on joining state Rep. B.J. Nikkel in preparing written tributes for the family of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Justin Bauer.
I will be conducting a “brainstorming” session at the Larimer County Republican headquarters on Friday, Jan. 30, at 6:30 p.m. The goal is to explore better ways of communicating our Republican message to the people of Larimer County. Now is the time to retool for the 2010 election and this is one of the ways I intend to help lead us to a successful election in 2010.
The county headquarters is about a block south and east of Prospect and Timberline, at 1600 Specht Point Drive, Suite H, Fort Collins. Please join me at this important discussion for our party and our county.
