The committees giving Gov.-Elect Jared Polis advice want to hear from everyday Coloradans.
The seven transition committees are planning a series of telephone town halls over the next week or so to let people share their ideas with the Polis administration.
Polis is already moving "Boldly Forward" (his slogan) with campaign promises such as Medicare for all, free preschool and moving the state toward 100 percent renewable energy.
“An important part of the transition subcommittees’ work is to solicit public input on how to improve the way state government operates in order to enhance the quality of life and expand opportunity for all Coloradans,” Polis' spokesperson, Mara Sheldon, said in a statement.
The tele-town halls are scheduled:
- Wednesday, noon to 1 p.m.: consumer services
- Thursday, 4 to 5 p.m: transportation, infrastructure and local affairs
- Saturday, noon to 1 p.m.: energy, natural resources and agriculture
- Monday, 6 to 7 p.m.: public safety, military and corrections
- Dec. 5, noon to 1 p.m.: education; 2 to 3 p.m.: health and human services
- Dec. 8, 10 to 11 a.m.: economic development and labor
There are several ways people can join in.
