STATE BILL COLORADO
Its longtime statehouse reporter Steven K. Paulson is still here, but the Associated Press is shifting reporter Kristen Wyatt to Colorado’s capitol.
She succeeds Colleen Slevin, who’ll be deputy to AP Colorado-Wyoming News Editor Jim Anderson, he confirmed.
Wyatt comes having covered congressional races as AP’s local political reporter. A story she filed today talks about U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter’s review of grocery store constituent meetings in the wake of the shooting over the weekend of Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona.
According to the story:
Rep. Ed Perlmutter typically holds meet-and-greets twice a month at grocery stores in his suburban Denver district. The three-term Democrat has had 70 such meetings and likes them so much he aired campaign ads last fall that showed him with folks in a store’s vegetable aisle.
But Perlmutter’s spokeswoman, Leslie Oliver, said it was unclear whether Perlmutter will hold his next two meetings at stores, a Jan. 30 gathering at a King Soopers in Wheat Ridge and another planned for Feb. 12.
