I'm Barbara Bynum and I am the Mayor of Montrose, Colorado. I am excited to announce that I am running for Colorado Senate District 5 to represent Coloradans who live in Delta, Eagle, Garfield, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, and Pitkin Counties.
I am proud to serve my community in Montrose as a city councilmember and effective community advocate. I’m running for Senate District 5 to fight for rural Colorado. Our rural counties need someone who will step up and bring together both sides of the aisle to find meaningful solutions for the problems we face daily—from healthcare costs, to childcare availability, to rural broadband access. My family chose to live in Montrose because of the quality of life and opportunities it provides us, and all Coloradans deserve those same opportunities.
