At the June 21, 2023 board meeting, the AGNC board recognized Representative Meghan Lukens and Senator Dylan Roberts for their outstanding service in the 2023 Colorado Legislative Session. Lukens, awarded with the Freedom Flight award, showed remarkable leadership in her freshman term reaching out to stakeholders in the region during policy development and throughout the bill process, advocating for all constituents in the district. Roberts, awarded with the Battle Royale award, was recognized for his willingness to reach across the aisle to pass important legislation, sometimes pushing back against his own party to truly represent the needs of Northwest Colorado. While the 2023 Colorado Legislative Session was contentious and with many ups and downs, the AGNC region was well-represented by our local legislators. Thank you to all of the Northwest Colorado legislators: Senator Dylan Roberts, Senator Janice Rich, Senator Perry Will, Representative Meghan Lukens, Representative Elizabeth Velasco, Representative Matt Soper, Representative Rick Taggart! We look forward to continuing our work together in 2024.

AGNC honored Rep. Perry Will at our August 17, 2022 board meeting with an appreciation award for his many years of tireless efforts on behalf of his constituents! We also had the pleasure of hearing reports from our regional state legislators – Rep. Will, Rep. Janice Rich, and Rep. Matt Soper, all pictured here with AGNC Chairman Mike Samson. We truly appreciate all the hard work of these legislators on behalf of Northwest Colorado!
