Glenwood’s Rippy appointed to state Internet authority

Gregg Rippy, a former state lawmaker from Glenwood Springs, has been appointed by Gov. John Hickenlooper to the Statewide Internet Portal Authority.

He will serve as a representative of the private sector on the authority, which, according to its website,, “accelerates the adoption of electronic government services by helping local and state governments place more services, products and information online.” In 2013, the website says, Colorado governments saved $6 million annually by using services provided by the authority.
