On 4th of July
Aurora, CO – U.S. Representative Mike Coffman announced that he has launched @MiRepCoffmanCO, a Spanish language Twitter account in a continuing effort to proactively engage a rapidly growing Hispanic population of Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.
“I am excited to be able to use Twitter to more effectively reach more of my constituents” said Coffman, adding “Making it even more special is announcing this on the 4th of July, a time our nation celebrates, together as one, our Independence Day”
Residents looking for information on events, available office services and up-to-date news in Spanish are encouraged to follow the account. In addition to launching @MiRepCoffmanCO, Representative Coffman will launch a new website later this month, which will offer a language widget making content on the site available in Spanish.
Recent census data show that approximately 164,000 residents in CO-06 district are of Hispanic of Latino descent, making up approximately 20% of its overall population.
