It's another photo contest! 

Just like for 4th of July, the newsroom wants to give away a gift card for the best photo from the Montrose County Fair. Starting today, we'll be hosting the contest for the next week, so if you haven't taken many photos, get out there this weekend and set up the perfect shot!

You can submit as many photos as you'd like (without spamming) and we'll vote on our favorite at the end of next week. Here's some photos of the fair from Joseph Harold to inspire you.

Colorado District 3 candidates seek a platform around unity

Happy Tuesday! I've been busy interviewing a couple more CO-D3 candidates this week and the underlying theme centered on unity and amplifying all voices everywhere. Monday afternoon I chatted with Kellie Rhodes and today I was able to speak with Marina Zimmerman.

A little about the candidates:

Kellie Rhodes is running on the Democrat platform. She draws from her experience in social services, CPS, youth corrections and security corrections. She has extensively researched the link between neurology and empathy in relation to youth within the system.

Her priorities include addressing the housing crisis, helping struggling mothers and children and emphasizing unity.

Marina Zimmerman is running on the Republican platform. She spent 20 years in industrial construction as a crane operator, but has lived in Colorado for 25 years now. Zimmerman also has several degrees, including an associates in the legal field, a bachelor's in political science. She additionally served on the Student Senate as the Legislative Affairs Chair.
