No better choice than Andrew Romanoff

There is clearly no better choice than Andrew Romanoff in this year’s U. S. Senate race! I first met Andrew in 2004, shortly before he became Speaker of the State House of Representatives. Since then, I have been consistently impressed with his incisive grasp of complex issues, his ability to discuss them in understandable terms, and his proven commitment to respectful service on behalf of all Coloradans. I also find his sense of humor and his down-to-earth manner refreshing in someone of ... Full Story

ACLU presents history of Amelia’s Tax Service

To the Editor: In late 2008, Weld County authorities illegally searched Amelia’s Tax & Translation Service in Greeley, seizing confidential files of thousands of taxpayers, although these authorities had suspicions implicating only one of these taxpayers. In a word, it was a classic fishing expedition. On January of 2009, ACLU of Colorado (ACLUCO) filed a class action lawsuit in state district court, arguing that Weld County District Attorney and Sheriff violated the privacy rights ... Full Story

Participate in the Census

To the Editor: The League of Women Voters encourages everyone to have a voice in government by participating in the 2010 Census.

All the personal information is strictly protected by Federal laws and is not shared with any other governmental agencies. The Constitution requires that a census be taken every ten years. Every person in the 50 ... Full Story

This year’s caucuses are coming up quickly!

Dear Editor: This year’s caucuses are coming up quickly!   I plan on attending mine this year to show my strong support for Andrew Romanoff for U.S. Senate.   After following Andrew’s time as Colorado State House Speaker and hearing him speak to a variety of groups, I feel that he is our best choice for U.S. Senate.  Here are just two reasons why. Andrew has pledged to stand up for our interests – not for special interests – and I believe him. The Coloradoan newspaper said of ... Full Story

Speaking out for Andrew Romanoff

This year Democrats are extremely lucky to have a choice of who will be their candidate for U. S. Senate. And they’re extremely lucky to have on the ballot a person of conviction who will stand up for Coloradoans; that person is Andrew Romanoff. Andrew has taken a stand that he will not accept PAC or corporate money in this election. Like many of us, he believes that money corrupts the system. In contrast, Andrew’s opponent is #6 on a list of legislators that have received the most ... Full Story
