Greeley, CO – Today, Rep. Ken Buck (CO-04) took Rep. Jared Polis (CO-02) on a tour of businesses in the Fourth Congressional District. The tour gave the congressmen, from different sides of the aisle, a chance to put aside partisan politics and focus on the ideas and needs of Coloradans. The members of Congress first visited Leprino Foods in Greeley, where they learned about the food processing industry from the world’s leading producer of mozzarella cheese. They then toured Front Range Energy, a supplier of fuel ethanol, where they heard about ways in which fuel ethanol can serve as an energy source for Colorado’s economy. 

“I appreciated the chance to show my colleague, Rep. Polis, around the Fourth Congressional District today,” Buck stated. “We may come from different sides of the aisle, but we know it’s important to work together and collaborate on ways to address the needs of all Coloradans.”  

"I'm grateful when we're able to put Colorado before partisan politics.  Yesterday, Rep. Buck graciously travelled to Loveland and Fort Collins to visit with our communities here, and today, he invited me to Greeley to meet with his communities,” said Polis.  “Colorado is at our best when all districts are served, and the best way we can serve our communities is by listening and learning from them.” 

On Wednesday, May 4, 2016, Rep. Buck joined Rep. Polis for a tour of businesses, schools, and government facilities in the Second Congressional District. The congressmen visited the Rocky Mountain Center for Innovation and Technology, Poudre High School, Colorado State University, and the U.S. Center for Disease Control (C.D.C). At the C.D.C., the members of Congress learned about the government's efforts to combat the increasing threat of the Zika virus.
