Mesa County commissioner Steve Acquafresca announced this afternoon that he is running for re–election. He made it official at the Mesa County Republican's luncheon today. Acquafresca currently serves as chair of the three person commission.He says he's accomplished a lot towards building our community and looks forward to being re–elected and getting more done.
Also at the luncheon, Senator Josh Penry talked about dropping out of the Governor's race and what's next for the republican party and if he'll support Gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis. "I made a decision that I could make a greater impact in another way, disappointing obviously, I still think I'm the right guy. But I also think that Scott McInnis will be a heck of a lot better than Bill Ritter and that redeploying our resources we can affect a much broader comeback," says Josh Penry.
Republican Gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis is scheduled to be in Palisade tomorrow evening for a meet and greet fundraiser. He will be at Grande River Vineyards from six to eight pm.
