Colorado Attorney General John Suthers will discuss consumer protection issues with Coloradans in Rifle on Tuesday, Sept. 20. The discussion, organized in partnership with AARP ElderWatch, will focus on common scams Coloradans are facing.

The attorney general will be in Rifle at 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 20 in Rifle at the Rifle Senior Center, 20 Ute. Ave.
