GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- One of the republican candidates for governor made a stop in Grand Junction on Saturday.
Greg Lopez held a town hall meeting to talk to voters about why he's running for governor. He's the only veteran running for the top job in our state.
He is a former mayor of Parker and was elected when he was 27 years old.
One of the biggest issues he says facing our state is one of the least talked about, and that's water issues.
“A lot of people talk about transportation and education but when you really look and analyze the totality of the state, water is the life blood of Colorado and we cannot ignore that issue,” said Lopez.
Lopez is going up against current state treasurer Walker Stapleton, former state representative Victor Mitchell and Doug Robinson, a businessman and nephew of Mitt Romney in the primary race.
That race will be decided on June 26, for more information on Lopez and his campaign, click on the link to the right of your screen.
