Arthur Lewis: Supports more wilderness

Arthur Lewis

As a Denver resident who enjoys the outdoors, I couldn’t help but smile when I heard about Rep. Jared Polis’s plan to protect lands in nearby Eagle and Summit counties. While the lands aren’t right in my backyard, they’re still easy to visit.

I, much like many visitors to Colorado, depend on public lands for opportunities to enjoy unspoiled vistas, healthy forests and thriving wildlife. Whether it’s hiking, camping, cross country skiing or hunting, our wilderness areas have much to offer.

I’m thankful that Rep. Polis shares my sentiments and hope these areas receive the lasting protection they deserve.
