The ability to effectively address Colorado’s water problems will determine the strength of our West Slope economy. Our next U.S. senator must understand our complex water issues to guide water policy in a way that benefits all Coloradans while protecting western Colorado.Washington cannot prevent drought, but effective leadership and strong water policies can ensure a vibrant economy and a healthy environment for the entire state regardless of what Mother Nature delivers. Ken Salazar has a proven and impressive track record on Colorado water issues. From leading the opposition against Referendum A to fighting against federal intervention in Colorado’s water rights system, Salazar has demonstrated his ability to deal with these complex issues.Further, in supporting reasonable settlement of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison litigation, Salazar has proven his independence from party politics in favor of common sense solutions.Salazar’s history of leadership and demonstrated track record prove that as senator he will find creative solutions to Colorado’s challenging water problems. Colorado’s vibrant economy and our natural environment depend on it. Join me in voting for West Slope values; vote for Ken Salazar.
