Smith is an Enthusiastic Leader

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. As the chief executive of the sheriff’s office, the Sheriff will represent this large agency as it coordinates with the other criminal justice agencies in our county, large and small. 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

Ballot measures explained, letters verses numbers

Ballot measures explained, letters verses numbers

Ballot Measures for Dummies: 2010 “Yes on Letters. No on Numbers. ” The Colorado legislature has done something useful since the last election. All ballot measures in the past were called “Amendments” although some of the measures amended the Constitution, and some amended the statutes. This was confusing. Many people thought if a measure was called an “amendment” it meant that it amended the Constitution. Now, that is in fact, true. If a measure amends the statutes it is ... Full Story

Smith is In-Tune to be Sheriff

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

Support Senator Kevin Lundberg

Support Senator Kevin Lundberg

Your vote for Senator Kevin Lundberg is a vote for “common sense in government.” Kevin is against tax increases and the current level of government spending.  He knows that individual citizens make better decisions spending their money than bureaucrats. He knows that citizens are taxed enough already, and he supports the proposed initiatives that would cut fees and taxes on income and property, and limit government borrowing. Kevin strongly supports education, families and our ... Full Story

Seeking One Principled Person from Each Side of the

By Kathleen Rogers and Antonio Gonzalez On September 17, 1787, a group of visionaries and leaders signed our Constitution. They were intent on creating a functioning government based on universal truths and extraordinary principles in an environment complicated by disparate regional economies and wildly divergent parochial interests. Back then, differing proposals for the shape of our government divided our country into two camps, but the necessity to address the need for a common ... Full Story

Shameless Exploitation

Shameless Exploitation

Dear Friends and Neighbors: Linda Petrie Bunch’s granddaughter, Mila, and my granddaughter, Aubrielle, star in the below video.  Aubrielle is on the left in the striped dress, and Mila is on the right.  As you can see, we have shamelessly exploited these children for political purposes.  Please let me know what you think.  Don’t forget to come back and read the rest of this email when you are done.  Please forward the video around.  I think it might ...

Justin Smith’s Website Good and Informative

Dear Editor: I just finished reviewing Justin Smith’s web site. I have to admit, I didn’t know much about him. I originally thought he would not have many new ideas, but I was very wrong to make those assumptions. He is a family man and with his wife, is raising two sons in our community. Justin values education, community participation, and most importantly, serving and protecting the citizens of the county. He has the support and endorsements of many community leaders. I really ...
