Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser made a stop in Ridgway today to hold a community conversation on the challenges and opportunities related to affordable housing in southwestern Colorado and to hear the experiences of Ouray County families and surrounding communities. Weiser's visit was part of a larger tour in Western Colorado.

KVNF’s Lisa Young spoke with the Attorney General following his visit to Ridgway which included a tour of homes provided by Rural Homes, a subsidiary of the nonprofit Paradox Community Trust in Telluride, Colorado.

Lisa was born in Texas but grew up on a small farm in Olathe, Colorado and considers herself a “Colorado native after six years of age.” Lisa has seven years experience in media, beginning as a News Director for a small radio station on the Eastern Plains. Following her initial radio career, Lisa worked as a staff reporter for The Journal Advocate in Sterling, Colorado and most recently as a staff reporter for the Delta County Independent. Lisa is thrilled to join the award-winning News and Public Affairs team at KVNF.
