Coloradans have been pleading for a chance to interface with their evasive Junior Senator for some time now. Tactics have gotten pretty creative: There were the “missing” fliers; the cardboard Cory campaign; and the days-long stakeout of his Denver office that ended in arrest (and national media attention.) All to no avail.

Now, a day after a heated telephone-only town hall, Sen. Cory Gardner’s office announced he’ll be appearing at an in-person town hall. Here’s the catch: it’s tomorrow and it’s six hours away.
According to the press release, Gardner will tour the Gold King Mine — the site of a 2015 wastewater spill — with fellow Republican Congressman Scott Tipton and Democrats Senator Michael Bennet and Governor John Hickenlooper, before sitting down for an update and question-and-answer session. That’ll take place at the La Plata County Administration Building Board Room in Durango (1101 E. 2nd Ave) at 2:30 p.m. on Friday. The two Senators, at least, may also do some self-congratulating for having supported a Department of Transportation program that recently awarded La Plata County a grant for highway construction.
