Sen. Coram to speak at ACRCC meeting


    By Deborah Van Gundy
    Special to The SUN
    State Sen. Don Coram, who represents the eight counties of District 6, including Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan, will be the guest speaker at the Archuleta County Republican Central Committee (ACRCC) meeting on Oct. 18.
    Coram previously represented District 58 in the Colorado House of Representatives from 2011 until 2017, when he was appointed to the State Senate to fill the seat vacated by then-retiring Sen. Ellen Roberts.
    Coram’s background in mining and agriculture put him in a unique position to serve on the Agriculture, Natural Resources and Energy Committee; he also serves on the Judiciary Committee.
    Recently, Coram was appointed chair of the County Courthouse and County Jail Funding and Overcrowding Solutions Interim Study Committee, which, among other issues, is studying the current cost of maintaining and staffing county courthouses, jail facilities and justice centers in each county and the current availability of state resources to aid in the funding of county courthouse facilities. This will be the main topic of discussion when the senator speaks at the ACRCC meeting.
    The ACRCC meeting will be held at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at Boss Hogg’s Restaurant, 157 Navajo Trail Drive. The meeting is open to the public and we suggest anyone interested in receiving current information from Coram arrive early to get a seat and order lunch (optional).
    For more information, please contact the ACRCC secretary, Ronnie Zaday, at 731-3971 or email her at
