To the Editor

My husband and I were constituents of Andrew Romanoff for the last five years we lived in Denver when he was a member of the Colorado House of Representatives. We met and spoke with him on the front porch of our Washington Park home where we had lived since 1970. Not a fancy home, ours, but one that had been built in 1912 and we hadn’t even begun to dream of remodeling. Andrew, nonetheless, asked if we would put a sign for his candidacy in our front yard. What impressed me about Andrew was ... Full Story

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

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

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.
