Clear choice for health care

Clear choice for health care

As a family physician over the past 30 years I have seen the consequences of insurance delayed care, denied care, more frequent hospital admissions and deaths of the uninsured, and more illness related bankrupties than I care to remember. For many of our citizens the quality of care is unsurpassed, but currently 50 million citizens are uninsured with huge difficulties in accessing medical care. Voters! Look carefully at what Senator Bennett and Mr. Buck prescribe for you health ... Full Story

Senator Kevin Lundberg

Senator Kevin Lundberg has done an outstanding job representing “we the people” in Colorado’s legislature.   He believes that government should never become so big and powerful that it overwhelms our liberties with mandates, taxes, fees and endless bureaucracies.  He fought against the recently enacted car tax, the constitution-defying property tax increase, the elimination of the senior homestead property tax exemption, to name a few.  He has fought to rein in undisciplined spending ...

Our Economy

Our Economy

To the Editor, This is a fine mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. Both our unemployment rate and our national debt are ‘way too high, and improving either one will make the other worse. Spending money to increase jobs will increase our debt. Laying off government workers to lower spending will increase unemployment. More unemployment = less consumer spending = fewer new jobs. If we do nothing, we stagnate. The Obama Administration is struggling mightily with this inherited ... Full Story

A Fact, Any Fact

A Fact, Any Fact

Dear Friends and Neighbors: I woke up this morning with a hypothetical conversation between me and a voter going through my head. Gordon: You know the people elect the University of Colorado Regents. I’m thinking it might be better if they are appointed by the Governor. Voter: No. Why would I want to give up my right to elect the Regents? Gordon: Okay, tell me one fact about either of the two candidates for CU Regent at-large. Voter: A fact? Gordon: Yeah a fact, any ... Full Story

That’s outrageous!

That’s outrageous!

That's outrageous! The claims made against Senator Kevin Lundberg by 21st Century Colorado, an arm of ActBlue, "the online clearinghouse for Democratic action," in six recent mailings, would have us believe that instead of being a caring, principled family man and state senator, Kevin is a monster better suited to scare us to death at a local haunted house later this month. But each mailing is based on a complete misrepresentation of Kevin and distortions and lies regarding his voting ... Full Story

Smith Has Positive Approach

Smith Has Positive Approach

With over 17 years in the public safety in northern Colorado, I have had the opportunity to work with many local and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the Front Range. I can tell you that Major Smith is one of the most professional law enforcement officers I have had the privilege to work with. His knowledge of law enforcement, state statutes and more importantly dealing with people, people on a personal level this is highly valued and appreciated. It is clear his breadth ... Full Story

Ball can get job done

Ball can get job done

Rich Ball should be elected to the Senate District 15 post. He believes in performance-based audits of government departments and incentives for them to stop use-it-or-lose-it spending gimmicks that can be wasteful. Results would have to be proven before budgets are allocated. As a former small-business man, he will help businesses bring jobs to Colorado. He has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Rotary Club and many more. He will take his public-service ... Full Story

We crave a candidate with integrity, experience, and a history that is open and honest and without skeletons. We have this candidate, Justin Smith for Larimer County Sheriff. Justin Smith is a current high-ranking member of our sheriff’s office. Over the last two decades, he has worked as a deputy, sergeant, and division commander, has worked in Internal Affairs, and ...
