Pueblo’s born and raised Eastsider, Leroy Garcia, who worked his way from Pueblo Councilman to State Sentor and is now president of the Senate, posted on Facebook his first day as acting Governor, July 25th, “From meager beginnings in 1869 to its incredible success today, the State Fair has always called Pueblo home. It’s an important part of the history of Pueblo & Colorado. As acting Governor, I’m proud to designate August 23, 2019 & September 3, 2019 as Colorado State Fair Week.” Garcia is the first hispanic to be president of the Senate and the head fills in when Governor Jared Polis and Lieutenant Governor Dianne Primavera are both away.
