State Sen. Herpin to hold town hall Jan. 11

       State Senator Bernie Herpin will host a townhall meeting Saturday, January 11 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Community Room of the Gold Hill Police Station, 955 West Moreno Ave.
       The event is open to the public.
      Herpin, a Colorado Springs Republican who is just starting his first session in the Colorado Legislature, said he called the meeting to talk about bills that he plans to support.
      He has previously pledged to work for a repeal of the gun laws that led to the recall of his predecessor - Democrat John Morse - last September. Herpin has also talked about co- sponsoring what's known as Jessica's Law, a mandate approved in most states that increases the penalties for people who molest children.
      Herpin represents Senate District 11, which includes Old Colorado City and much of the Westside. Other parts of the district take in Manitou Springs to the west and to the east the Colorado Springs downtown and areas as far east as Powers Boulevard.
