Commission on aging seeks regional representative

ASPEN – The position of representing Jackson and Pitkin counties on the Colorado Commission on Aging will expire on July 1, meaning the position will be available for someone to fill this summer.

The Colorado Commission on Aging was established in 1964 to inform and advise decision-makers and to advocate for the quality of life of all seniors, a growing area of concern for Pitkin County. The commission consists of 17 volunteer members appointed by the governor, with consent of the Senate, and is composed of two persons from each congressional district (one from each major political party), one person at large, one from the Senate, and one from the House of Representatives. Appointment is for a four-year term.

The District 2 Democratic commission member position is also vacant. District 2 includes representing Eagle, Grand and Summit counties.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the commission, please contact Tara Franck at the Division of Aging and Adult Services at 303-866-5288, or contact the Governor’s Boards and Commissions Office at 303-866-6328.

If you are interested in more information, contact Jean Hammes at the Alpine Area Agency on Aging at 970-468-0295.
