Farris named to the Colorado Wildlife Commission

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter on Friday appointed Pitkin County Commissioner Dorothea Farris to the Colorado Wildlife Commission.

Ritter, in a prepared statement, said Colorado’s environmental resources, particularly our wildlife and our water, “are among this state’s most precious assets,” Gov. Ritter said.

Farris was appointed to the commission ” which oversees the Colorado Division of Wildlife ” along with Robert Streete, a wildlife and wetlands-restoration consultant who lives in Fort Collins.

“Each of the people I’m appointing today understands they will play a critical role as stewards of these resources for years to come,” Ritter said.

Farris has served as a county commissioner in Pitkin County since 1997. She is president of Colorado Counties Inc. and is on the board of directors of the National Association of Counties according to the governor’s statement. Since 2006, she has served on DOW’s Public Education Advisory Council.
