Consistent support of issues important to Realtors has earned Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp the honor of 2017 Legislator of the Year from the Colorado Association of Realtors. Rep. Matt Gray also received the award, which is given to Colorado legislators who have put effort into legislative efforts that support homeownership.
Kraft-Tharp represents Arvada and Westminster in District 29. She is completing her third two-year term in the state House. She is the chair of the Business Affairs and Labor Committee and serves on the Legislative Audit Committee.
With her experience in business regulation and economic development issues, Kraft-Tharp has an advanced understanding of the regulatory issues that critically affect the real estate industry, according to the Colorado Association of Realtors.
She has also been a steadfast backer of many pieces of Realtor-supported legislation such as construction litigation reform, first-time homebuyer savings accounts and wildfire mitigation tax deductions.
Gray is a former deputy district attorney. He was elected in 2016 to represent Broomfield, Superior and Erie residents in House District 33. He is completing his first two-year term in the state House and sits on the Finance, Local Government and Business Affairs and Labor committees. Last year, Gray was the prime sponsor of the Division of Real Estate Sunset bill and a clear supporter of construction litigation reform.
“Rep. Kraft-Tharp and Rep. Gray have consistently supported issues important to Realtors,” said Colorado Association of Realtors Chair Ann Hayes. “Both of these legislators have enhanced the ability of Coloradans to achieve the American dream of homeownership.”
