Jerry Sonnenberg announced his intention to seek re-election to the State Legislature from House District 65 last Thursday, Jan. 28. Representative Sonnenberg also addressed the current legislative session including the budget deficit.
Sonnenberg currently represents Logan, Phillips, Sedgwick and most of Weld counties in the Colorado State House of Representatives. He serves on the House Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources Committee, as well as Appropriations and the Capital Development Committees.
“It is my privilege to be a strong voice for rural Colorado in the state legislature,” said Sonnenberg. “Agriculture is Colorado’s third largest industry and I am proud to defend our ag producers under the gold dome.”
After being elected in 2006, Rep. Sonnenberg quickly became a leader on rural issues as well as gaining the reputation of protecting the Colorado Taxpayer. He has also been recognized by Colorado Civil Justice League for his work on tort reform and recognized by the Colorado Association of Conservation Districts, as well as Colorado Corn as their Legislator of the Year.
A lifelong Logan County resident, Sonnenberg continues to be the ultimate environmentalist as he farms and ranches southeast of Sterling with his wife, Vonnie and their two sons, Josh and Ryan. They also have two daughters who are now married and have families of their own.
“It has been a pleasure to serve the 65th District and I hope to continue as a strong voice for Northeastern Colorado,” added Rep. Sonnenberg. “Given the current economic and regulatory environment, it is important that I use my experience to turn Colorado back into a state that creates jobs.”
