Colorado is a destination for business travelers, family vacations, family gatherings, and adventure seekers. Year after year, the state sets another record-breaking year in terms of tourism visitors and expenditures. To keep the travel and tourism industry vibrant with a diverse set of offerings, community leaders must embrace the evolutions that take place. The current discussion about short-term rentals, or STRs, in the Denver City Council is exactly the type of leadership that must happen to ensure that Denver and Colorado stay ahead of the curve in the changing travel landscape.

A former Republican lawmaker who gave up his Senate seat to serve in Gov. John Hickenlooper’s cabinet announced Wednesday he’s running for his old office as an independent. Former state Sen. Al White, R-Winter Park, is challenging state Sen. Randy Baumgardner, R-Hot Sulphur Springs, who unseated White’s wife, former state Sen. Jean White, in a brutal and divisive primary. Democrat Emily Tracy, who lost to Baumgardner in 2012, is also running in Senate District 8, which covers much of northwestern Colorado.
