Rep. Christine Scanlan wins business award

Vail – State Rep. Christine Scanlan (D-Summit County) was recently honored by the Independent Bankers of Colorado with the 2010 Champion of Main Street Award. Her hard work and dedication to local, community banking was recognized by all attending IBC’s annual conference, according to a press release.

The Champion of Main Street Colorado Award is an esteemed honor given to lawmakers who recognize the value and significance of local economies and what it takes to keep thriving. Recipients of the award are known for their ability to work with both parties in order to craft meaningful and effective public policy.

“I am so pleased to be honored by the small local banks that support our communities, create good jobs, and provide credit to our neighbors and small businesses,” Scanlan said. “These folks aren’t Wall Street, they’re our community partners on Main Street who support our schools, our teams, and our nonprofit groups.”

“Christine Scanlan understands Colorado’s Main Street economies and the important role they play in Colorado’s prosperity,” said Barbara Walker, IBC’s executive director.
