N2N in support of United Way

To the editor: Economists tell us the recession is nearly over. Meanwhile, here in Larimer County, the ongoing ripple effects of the economic downturn have devastating impacts, as unstable housing disrupts employment, education, health and family stability.

Karen Stockley is the right choice for District 49

Letter to the Editor: B. J. Nikkel is not the advocate for taxpayers and children that she claims to be. First of all, you don’t file to sue the Larimer County Sheriff’s office for $10 million putting the screws to the county taxpayers on the expectation that your son’s arrest charges will be reduced. Secondly, you don’t brag about the awards you have received for pointing out deficiencies in social programs that you have worked consistently to de-fund. Third, you don’t vote to ... Full Story

Smith for Sheriff – Even More Certain

I knew Justin Smith was the right candidate for Larimer County Sheriff when I first volunteered to work on his campaign. I was first encouraged by mutual friends that attend my church. But, before I agreed, I researched the record for his priorities, beliefs, and values. As a law enforcement officer, Justin’s character traits are important to identify and affirm. As time has passed, I’ve learned more about Justin and his character. He is a visionary with an enthusiastic spirit; a ... Full Story

Smith is an Enthusiastic Leader

Letter to the Edtior I have had the pleasure of working with Justin Smith, candidate for Larimer County Sheriff, on many levels in the community since 1991.

To represent the sheriff’s office on an equal footing with other respected agencies, the sheriff must be experienced, educated, and committed to ... Full Story

Two Talented Candidates

Two Talented Candidates

To the Editor, Senator Michael Bennet and Congresswoman Betsy Markey are two of the brightest, most dedicated, most thoughtful, and hardest working legislators in Congress today. Both of them are extremely well-qualified, and both have an amazing grasp of the details and implications of the bills they vote on. Bennet and Markey have been in Congress only a short time, but already are known and respected by their colleagues on both sides of the aisle. They are leaders, rather than ... Full Story

Smith is In-Tune to be Sheriff

I have been looking at and listening to the candidates for Larimer County Sheriff. Each represent a different political party, but only one clearly stands out from the other. Justin Smith has nearly 20 years of current experience with our sheriff’s office. Because his experience is current, he is in tune with the current state of law enforcement and the criminal justice field. He has both a bachelor’s and a master’s in criminal justice. Justin Smith has the desire and ability to learn ... Full Story
