Hickenlooper to visit the Roaring Fork Valley to watch Bronco game
Glenwood Springs Post Independent
Gov. John Hickenlooper was thought to be bringing his re-election campaign to the lower Roaring Fork Valley today to catch the Denver Broncos-New York Jets football game at a pair of local brewpubs and meet with voters, according to local Democratic Party officials.
Garfield County Democratic Party Chairman Bob Shivley and Michael Sullivan, candidate for Garfield County commissioner, said Friday they had both been in contact with Hickenlooper campaign officials who were arranging the visit.
Hickenlooper is in a tight race with Republican Bob Beauprez leading up to the Nov. 4 election.
Officials with the Hickenlooper campaign could not be reached for confirmation, but according to the local party representatives, the plan was for the governor to catch the first half of the game at the Glenwood Canyon Brew Pub and to head up to Carbondale for the second half at Carbondale Beer Works.

That was to be followed by a rendezvous at the local Democratic Party headquarters in the former doctor’s office building on Highway 133 and possibly some door-knocking by the governor.
Hickenlooper is scheduled to appear at Aspen technology manufacturer Amatis Controls’ new facility, in the Aspen Business Center, at 4 p.m. for a ribbon cutting and reception.
Amatis Controls relocated its manufacturing facility from Wisconsin to Aspen in September and now occupies 3,000 square feet at the Aspen Business Center, according to a statement about the ribbon-cutting reception.
