Show Description

The Aaron Harber Show: Colorado Now! TM” ( is a nonpartisan public affairs series providing a forum to inform citizens while simultaneously bringing people together who often are in conflict. As an initiative to restore civility to the political process, it features the State’s top opinion leaders and experts engaged in substantive and potentially transformative discussions. It will examine some of the exciting activities, projects, and developments led by a wide range of Colorado people from many backgrounds, professions, and walks of life.

Addressing the State’s critical need for a forum where issues can be debated seriously and in a civil manner, “Colorado Now” is the place citizens can turn to for accurate information. A sample of the issues being considered for inclusion are (1) The Economy & Jobs, (2) Economic Development Initiatives, (3) the Budgetary Crisis, (4) Health Care & Health Coverage, (5) Wellness, (6) K-12 Education, (7) Higher Education, (8) Vocational Education & Training, (9) Transportation, (10) Energy Resources & Development, (11) The Environment, (12) Recreation & Tourism, (13) Immigration, (14) Policies, (15) Constitutional Challenges, (16) Campaign Reform, (17) Political Campaigns, and (18) Governance.
