All about U and Colorado’s counties

A Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat action figure hoists a wooden U decorated by Colorado Counties Inc. into the air.

You know when you ask Eric Bergman at Colorado Counties Inc. to decorate a wooden U you won’t be disappointed.

The artwork on the U is courtesy of CCI staffer Gini Pingenot’s son, Lowen, while Bergman, the official court jester of CCI and pretty much every agency he has ever worked for, was responsible for the World Wrestling action figure and the staging.

Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat was my favorite wrestler growing up,” Bergman said.

He also gave a shoutout to his CCI co-workers, texting “I ♥ them. ”

The CCI Foundation is currently holding its summer conference in Keystone.

Colorado Secretary of State Williams, a former El Paso County commissioner, dropped by the conference Monday but no word if he pulled one of The Dragon’s moves on anyone.

Colorado Counties Inc. staffers Allison Daley, Gini Pingenot, Brandy DeLange and Eric Bergman.

Williams is handing out the U’s as part of the office’s UChooseCO campaign, which stresses to unaffiliated voters that they will receive both the Democratic and Republican ballots in the mail for the June 26 primary but they have to pick just one ballot. If they vote two, neither will count.

The UChooseCO campaign has a web pageFacebook page, a Twitter account and its own hashtag, #UChooseCO.

At least every week day between now and the June 26 primary the Secretary of State’s office will highlight a wooden U or two. Check out more decorated U’s on Facebook and Twitter.
