As the Grant County Prospectors gear up for Grant County Day at the Legislature on February 3, 2016 we would like to share our “Top Topics” brochure. This document was previously titled our issues of concern brochure. The topics covered are forwarded from the annual Forum that was held in December of 2015 for our local Legislators. The Prospectors help these local governments and community organizations advocate on behalf of their needs. The brochure is in a printable PDF format.
The Legislative Communications Forum was held by the Grant County Prospectors on Thursday, December 3rd at the WNMU Light Hall. This forum is an annual opportunity for local governments and entities to present their legislative priorities to Legislators. The Prospectors then chose community projects and priorities to advocate for while in Santa Fe for Grant County Day which will be held on Wednesday, February 3, 2016.
Bruce Ashburn, Prospectors’ president, served as moderator for the annual Legislative Communication Forum for the area legislators, who are Rep. Dianne Hamilton, District 38; Sen. Howie Morales, District 28; and Rep. John Zimmerman, District 39.
Pictured are Grant County Planner Anthony Gutierrez and Grant County Manager Charlene Webb outlining their 2016 Legislative Priorities.
