About Colorado: Northeast Region
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.

Our great state has been shaped and molded by the strong Colorado women who lead their communities, bolster our economy and provide for their families. One of the best parts of my job representing Colorado in Washington, D.C., is to promote policies that open up economic opportunities for everyone — and last week, I co-hosted the Colorado Women’s Forum on Economic Opportunity to bring all those ideas and idea-makers together.
