Today, June 18, is the recommended last day to mail primary ballots, although voters have until June 26th to vote in person or drop their ballots off at a 24-hour drop-off box.  KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with Matthew Bennett, one of the newest reporters to join the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, about his recent coverage of the Third Congressional District race.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Now Raleigh is happy to serve on the KDNK Board of Directors. Raleigh is now the Editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper the Sopris Sun.
