Mike Buffington of Longmont sits in the shade beside his Corvette at the Weld County Fair’s VetteFest car show in Greeley on Sunday, July 29, 2018. He’s lived in the Boulder area for decades, and after a career in the tech industry, he’s retired now.

“There's a lot of things happening now and I think more important than anything else is that we have to get healthcare solved,” he said. “I'm lucky because I'm on Medicare,” he added. But his daughter “struggles. She's 30 years old, works in retail,” and she and others can't really do much else with lives, can't make plans because of the cost of health insurance.
