No on Amendment 71

  Amendment 71 benefits special interests with financial backing while shutting out average Colorado citizens from the initiative process. It is predominately funded and promoted by the oil and gas industry. Corporations and special interests hungry for more political control are trying to rig our democracy. If the amendment passes, it will become almost impossible for citizens to put ballot initiatives on many issues including education, healthcare, taxes, and protecting the ... Full Story

Sweeney for HD49

Sweeney for HD49

To the Editor, As an Independent voter, I decided to review my options for leadership in the Colorado House of Representatives for District 49. As the Internet seemed to be the best source, I found a debate between the two candidates that was compelling enough to support my voting decision.

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

To the editor: I support ColoradoCare-Amendment 69 because it will provide access to affordable, quality healthcare for all Coloradans. This matters to the families of Coloradans who die each year because they don’t have health insurance; to those declaring bankruptcy because they can’t pay medical bills; to those who pay ever higher premiums for increasing deductibles and more limited benefits; to healthcare providers who deal with more paperwork and red tape to provide patients the ...

Buzz Sweeney for District 49

I am running for Colorado House of Representatives District 49 because you deserve a choice. Two years ago my opponent ran unopposed.  The differences between us is like night and day. I am absolutely sure women should receive equal pay for equal work and make their own health care decisions.
