Two Colorado residents are hoping to keep Colorado on daylight saving time year-round.
Sean and Teri Johnson, who live in Lakewood, are trying to get a measure onto the 2016 ballot that would keep the sun up longer in the afternoons, particularly during the winter months.
Sean Johnson said he hopes people will realize that doing so would be good for everyone. It not only would be better for the environment because it would help to keep air pollution to a minimum in the winter, but it would allow businesses to stay open an hour longer after people get off work, improving their bottom lines, they said.
The Colorado Republican Party had a banner year in 2014, and party chairman Ryan Call wants to see that continue. That’s why Call was in Grand Junction on Wednesday to talk to fellow party members, asking what they think went right and what the party could do better to keep momentum going into the 2016 presidential elections.
