Representative Holbert's earliest memories are grounded in Glenwood Springs Colorado where his family lived from 1961 until 1964. He and his parents lived the latter part of that time in a log cabin-style home that was located just west of the Grizzly Creek rest stop in Glenwood Canyon. Bighorn sheep grazed in their yard and the highlight of Chris' day was waving at the California Zephyr as the train roared through the Canyon. At an early age, Chris developed a deep respect and appreciation for the Colorado River and the wild, untamed beauty of western Colorado.
As a State Representative, Chris seeks opportunities to work on a statewide basis to conserve and store our most precious and powerful resource: water. We on the Front Range must respect the interests of the western slope, while all Coloradans share an interest in meeting our future water and power needs.
