A Force For Policy
STATE OF COLORADO
We call local specialty retailers the hubs of the outdoor industry. They are often consumers’ first point of contact with and gateway to outdoor products, services and playgrounds. These retailers do more than sell stuff, they convene and educate outdoorists through community programming and advocacy, whether in small towns or big cities. They often help define the community’s outdoor sensibilities and, well, they speak for the trees and trails and rivers and mountains nearby. They also support a growing segment of the economy in their town, city and state. David Leinweber is just such a retailer, and his Angler’s Covey is a legacy shop that has long supported his town’s outdoor recreation economy. That is why Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper — himself an outdoorist — has partnered with David and other local outdoor businesspeople throughout the state to write and influence recreation and trade policy that’s good for business and good for Colorado.
Alone we can each do something.
Together we can do anything.
