From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

Pueblo County commissioners Tuesday named Rhodes, a third-generation farmer on Fountain Creek, as their selection for a joint city-county appointment to the board. Pueblo City Council earlier passed a resolution naming Rhodes as one of two finalists from a list of 11 who applied for the post. Council must still formalize the action. Rhodes has lived her entire life on Fountain Creek and has expressed her concern about increased flows from development to the north many times over the past five years. She was a member of the Fountain Creek Vision Task Force, representing the interests of landowners in the Fountain Creek watershed. She is also a District 70 school board member.

Rhodes will join seven other board members: Pueblo County Commissioner Jeff Chostner, El Paso County Commissioner Dennis Hisey, Colorado Springs Vice-Mayor Larry Small, Fountain Mayor Pro-tem Gabriel Ortega, Palmer Lake Councilman Max Stafford, Pueblo Councilman Larry Atencio and Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District Director Leroy Mauch. A ninth board member will be appointed by the full board from among the members of a Citizens Advisory Group, appointed last week by the board.
