Heading for letter with colorado state seal

March 3, 2021

Dear Governor Polis:

Your recent proclamation declaring March 20th as “Meat Out” day in Colorado is incredibly hurtful to rural Colorado. This proclamation cannot be an oversight as you continue to attack the livestock industry. Cattle ranching is a foundational industry and has built up Colorado for decades. We rural Coloradoans count on animal agriculture to survive and thrive.

You fall short in the eyes of rural constituents when you intentionally make harmful proclamations against us. The citizens of Colorado want a Governor who will embrace all Coloradoans, and not kowtow to special interests that misrepresent our rural values. A City Slicker may not care to understand but the Governor should care and seek to understand!

Thousands of ranchers, rural communities, county fair boards, 4-H club members, FFA chapter members, agricultural colleges, and rural families across Colorado expect better. Politics aside, you as the Governor should be the state “Commander in Chief” and not be the “Activist in Chief”.

This is yet another Executive action that continues to grow the urban\rural divide. It sows the seeds of misunderstanding between urban and rural Colorado.

Your legacy as a Governor for all of Colorado will be lost if you do not heed this message. I beg you to change course in the second half of your term. Reach out to me and I can explain this idea in clear terms. Rural Colorado demands you represent the entire state and not the special interests that you appear to be beholden to in Boulder and other Denver metro counties.

Sincerely,
Richard Holtorf
State Representative
House District 64
