About Colorado: Northeast Region

Greeley landscape

Bordering Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas, the Northeast is multi-faceted. The area spans the rapidly urbanizing Interstate 25 corridor, with its focus on technology and clean energy, to one of the most productive farming and ranching regions in the country. This section of the state contains not only the beauty of the mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park, but the stark openness of the Eastern Plains over which the pioneers traveled to find their fortunes. The history and toughness of these settlers are celebrated in the numerous festivals, fairs, museums and rodeos found throughout the region. Now dotted with wind turbines frequently surrounded by cattle, the region typifies the combination of industries that make Colorado successful and is home to two universities, three community colleges and Northeastern Junior College.

    Thursday, July 31, 2014

    Throughout our nation's long history, American manufacturing has buoyed our economic success and helped us win the global economic race. From the post-war boom through today, Made-in-America jobs and products have laid the foundation for much of Colorado’s prosperity and success.

  • Keeping Our Promise to Colorado’s Senior Citizens

    Wednesday, July 30, 2014

    For nearly 50 years, Medicare has ensured Colorado senior citizens’ access to quality and affordable health care. Like most Coloradans, I believe this program must be protected and strengthened for future generations.

  • Not Your Boss’s Business

    Tuesday, July 15, 2014

    Coloradans agree that no one should have to ask their boss for a permission slip to access critical health services — birth control or otherwise. But just over two weeks ago, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5 to 4 decision, turned back the clock on decades of progress toward gender equality by deciding to allow the vast majority of employers to refuse to cover contraception as part of employees’ health insurance policies.
