Mike passed around the sign-up sheet again for the Induction Dinner.  He would like to collect the monies at next week.   $20/per person please.

This year’s Induction Dinner at Raccoon Creek on Jun 20th. This is the same place as the last Christmas party.  They waived the $200 fee for the room.  A vote on the meal, pulled pork or Italian Buffet went to Italian Buffet.

King Soopers is changing their program to do away with the extra card you have to carry and to put money onto.  It will NOT interfere with your other rewards.

Program:  Carl Duncan introduced his son-in-law Greg Romberg.  Greg brought us up to date on what’s happening in our local government.  Greg was last here on July 16, 2015 with his take on “today’s politics”.

It’s hard to imagine having a conversation with Greg Romberg and not hear his uplifting laugh. Even when discussing the most serious of subjects, he can find a morsel of humor (or is that irony) in just about everything. But then, Greg has spent most of his adult life working with the state legislature; he better be able to laugh.

Greg is a lobbyist and President of Romberg and Associates that has represented for over 30 years, corporations, trade associations and governmental entities at every level of government. That’s a nice way of saying that he repeatedly gets to know the ever changing population at the State House along with individuals in countless businesses and works to get good ideas implemented and bad ideas set aside.

He has some other accomplishments worth mentioning, including serving as the vice president of the Jefferson Group, a governmental relations firm; he was the founding executive director of Mayor Webb’s Office of Regulatory Reform, acting as liaison to the business community and formed a program that, in just two years, streamlined Denver’s development process. As director of the Colorado Office of Regulatory Reform, he provided comprehensive business startup information to more than 100,000 entrepreneurs.

Greg also filled the post of legislative liaison for the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies and budget director for the Colorado Department of Health. When asked about specifics, he shrugs, clearly not impressed with this impressive list of accomplishments.
