Even though Gov. John Hickenlooper did most of the talking during Mondays lean in and listen stop in Craig, the locals made it clear theyre tired of having their concerns brushed aside by lawmakers in Denver and Washington, D.C.
Chief among the issues raised at the public forum were the federal crackdown on coal, the looming sage-grouse listing, and the state legislatures doubling of the renewable-energy mandate and limiting access to firearms and ammunition.
Brandy Meek, chair of the Moffat County Republican Party, drew loud applause when she said, I would urge you, this next legislative session, please represent all of Colorado, not just the urban center.
We all kind of have same sentiment, that all of Colorado is not being represented by you, said Meek. I had high hopes when you came into office that that would not be the case; however, it seems every piece of legislation that was put on your desk from this liberal legislature this last session was passed by you. As governor, it is your job to create a checks-and-balances system for rural Colorado, because as you mentioned, most Colorado counties are rural.
KRAI-FM summed up his appearance with the headline, Hickenlooper Gives Vague Answers to Community Questions.

Any Republican who has “high hopes” over a Democrat isn’t worthy of office.

Our Republic is dead, We now have a democracy which is a nice way of saying mob rule. The urban mob overrides the concerns of the rural people. But the mob forgets that "It's The Farmer Who Feeds Us All"
and it "Will put them to the test, if the farmer takes a rest".
