Quotes from Legislators

“The Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance (NCLA) has proven itself a proactive and effective voice for commerce in our region.  I have been acquainted with the organization since its inception when I was Secretary to the Colorado Transportation Commission and gratefully received important insights on the potential impacts of Commission actions on business climate in Northern Colorado.  During my 8 years as a Weld County Colorado Commissioner and member and officer of the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning and Air Quality Council, I always appreciated the balanced and high quality input from the NCLA.  NCLA is providing invaluable service to not only the business community of our area but also the public in general with its effective facilitation of efforts to form a much needed Regional Transportation Authority for Northern Colorado.”

— Former State Representative Glenn Vaad, District 48, Weld County


“NCLA is a positive force for the Northern Colorado Region. It is the only entity which is able to bring together all the major cities to work toward the betterment of the economy and free enterprise system for the region. I am proud to have served on its board as a director and very glad I can make a positive impact toward forming a Regional Transportation Authority to our region through the NCLA.”

— Don Marostica, Former Director of Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (former State Representative from District 51, Larimer County)



“NCLA effectively lobbies and advocates on behalf of Northern Colorado businesses and the Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley Chambers of Commerce.  As a state representative who cares about sustainable economic development and shared prosperity, I appreciate the important perspective and information that NCLA provides, even though we may have different opinions on some of the issues.”

— State Senator John Kefalas, District 14, Larimer County
