It was an incredibly strong showing for both attendance and money-raised, as CPCA raised over $8,000! CPCA honored Rep. Leslie Herod, as CPCA’s Legislative Champion for 2019, who sponsored the recently passed bed bug bill – HB 1328 that was signed by Governor Polis and enacted into law in May of this year. Rep.
