STATE CAPITOL UPDATE – December 5, 2011
By Representative Randy Fischer, Colorado House District 53
I hope this finds you well and enjoying the warmth of home, friends, and family as the first really cold weather of the season sets in.
The start of the 2012 legislative session is now just a little more than 5 weeks away. I’ve been working for the past several months preparing for the coming session. I’d like to chat with you about what to expect when the legislature reconvenes on January 11. That’s why I am continuing my series of town hall meetings this coming Saturday. Information on this meeting is provided below. I hope to see you there.
YOU’RE INVITED: TOWN HALL MEETING
I will hold an open town hall meeting this coming Saturday, December 10, 2011. I hope you’ll take this opportunity to join Senator Bob Bacon, Representative John Kefalas, and me for an update on our preparations for the upcoming legislative session. We will have some updated information regarding the State budget, legislative district boundaries, and anticipated legislative initiatives.
Business owner Charles Kaine has graciously offered to host this town hall at Reader’s Cove Bookshop and Half Moon Coffee located on the southwest corner of Harmony Road and Lemay Avenue. Please help us thank Charles by supporting these two local businesses.

CONNECTING WITH MY DISTRICT
Although the Colorado General Assembly meets for 120 days each year, I consider the responsibility of representing House District 53 a full-time job. That’s why I strive to remain open and accessible to my constituents year round. Even when I’m not at the Capitol, I continue to work on legislation, meet with constituents, help Fort Collins residents navigate state government, and participate in two interim committees – the interim water review committee and transportation legislative review committee.
I hope you will feel free to contact me at any time with comments, issues, or concerns about state government.
