Letter: Stand with me for Western Colorado
November 2, 2018
Although every election cycle claims to be the most important, this one will actually have an enormous impact on the future of Colorado. We are at a critical juncture especially for our climate, our economy and for Colorado values rooted in our independent spirit.
Elections can be a challenging time for many of us: challenges of a long ballot, conflicting political claims, heated debates, a barrage of phone calls and door knocks chasing our precious vote.
I am asking for you to stand with me and support three candidates who I know personally, have worked alongside, and trust to protect Colorado. I can personally vouch that these are the people we want on the front line defending our State — Jared Polis for Governor, Phil Weiser for Attorney General and Diane Mitsch Bush for Congress.
For fifteen years I had the privilege of being elected to serve the people of Western and Southern Colorado. Public service takes hard work and sacrifice. It takes courage to fairly represent the interests of all of your constituents and to maintain a long view of what is best for Colorado, not special interests.
Jared Polis, Phil Weiser and Diane Mitsch Bush are respected for their integrity, their courage and their hard work, and will fulfill their commitment to Colorado voters:
Fight for equal access to quality education and affordable health care all Coloradans
