Colorado Rep. Perry Will says he has the experience to get things done at the statehouse.

Colorado House District 57 was redrawn during the latest round of redistricting. It now includes communities from Aspen to Parachute.

Perry Will, R-New Castle, is the incumbent in the district. Will was appointed to fill the vacant seat in 2019 and won reelection in 2020. Before serving at the statehouse, he spent 42 years as an officer for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. He has no Republican primary opponents.

In November, he’ll be facing either Cole Buerger or Elizabeth Velasco, both of Glenwood Springs, depending on the outcome of their Democratic primary in June.

Reporter Caroline Llanes spoke this week with Will about his time in the state legislature and what he feels are the district’s key issues.
