GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Republican District 54 seat candidate Ray Scott has already made a campaign promise - that he'll listen to the needs of everyone if he gets elected, not just his supporters.
The Grand Junction businessman announced his candidacy last month for the seat that will be vacated by Rep. Steve King in 2010. Scott says it's important that elected leaders answer to the voters and put legislation back in the hands of citizens, which is why he's promising to form a bi-partisan Citizen's Committee if elected.
Scott says the committee will meet regularly and be a conduit for information that can directly help the people of Western Colorado. Scott says the committee will get to review legislation proposed at the State House as well as gather input from other citizens.
"This will give me a pulse on what the needs and concerns of my constituents will be versus what special interest groups want," he says. "It's time to change the old way of thinking."
