Gubernatorial Flavor At Annual Dems Dinner

Governor Bill Ritter was just one of the notable Democrats in attendance of the Mesa County Democrats Annual Spring Fling Fundraiser.

Mesa State College in Grand Junction was the stage for the event which hundreds were in attendance for.

Current Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff, Congressman John Salazar and Governor Ritter were on hand for the silent auction and more importantly to recap the legislative session, which for many took steps in energy development.

The event also recapped the public career of Grand Junction City Councilman Jim Spehar, who is stepping down after serving on both the council and the Mesa County Board of Commissioners.
