(Aug. 5) – Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp (D-Arvada) is the 2014 recipient of the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce Rising Star award.
The Women’s Chamber announced that its honorees are being recognized for “their leadership and the work they have done on behalf of women and business.”
“I am deeply honored by this recognition,” said Rep. Kraft-Tharp, who served as vice chairwoman of the House Business, Labor, Economic & Workforce Development Committee in her first term as a legislator. She has successfully sponsored a variety of business-boosting legislation, including measures to incentivize private-sector job creation, to boost the state’s aircraft industry and to increase Colorado companies’ access to global markets.
The award will be presented Nov. 6 at a Women’s Chamber gathering at the Governor’s Mansion in Denver.
