‘Letters to the Editor’ Archives

Stop Trump

Stop Trump

Dear editor, "We’ve got to make Trump a one-term president"—Bernie Sanders It was with that quote that Bernie Sanders endorsed Joe Biden. And as a strong Bernie supporter, I think it's important people know I'm voting for Joe Biden this November. Trump has shown himself to be a threat to our public health and safety throughout the coronavirus pandemic. He is the worst president in US history and we must do everything in our power to defeat him. Joe Biden was not my first choice. But I ... Full Story

Letter to the Editor: Impeachment

Letter to the Editor: Impeachment

Dear editor,  After spending 20 years in the US Army defending our Constitution, I feel I must speak out. The upcoming impeachment trial must be fair. Witnesses must be allowed for an honest and fair trial. Senators must base their decisions only on the evidence. The House must be allowed to present its full case -- calling necessary witnesses and allowing all evidence from the impeachment inquiry into the trial record. The American people deserve to see what this administration has done ... Full Story

The Pardoning of Ingrid (LTE)

The Pardoning of Ingrid (LTE)

Governor Polis pardoning Ingrid Encalada LaTorre is a victory and first step, it is not a Christmas miracle. It is the culmination of hard work, perseverance, and faith – emanating from Ingrid and the people she inspired. In three years of living in churches with her two children, she has inspired the dedication of people of diverse faith to help her fight to win the right to stay in the US. As a young immigrant, Ingrid made a mistake. But remember that Ingrid’s crime was simply due to ... Full Story

The importance of Census

The importance of Census

Dear Editor, The 2018 election season is upon us and terminology related to the election can be confusing - two being apportionment and districting. Apportionment determines the number of representatives to the U.S. House of Representative allotted to each state based on population. Each state gets two senators, but population determines the number of representatives. Districting is the process of drawing the lines to establish the population each U.S. House member will represent. ... Full Story

Beat the Budget Vultures: Demand Medicare for All

Beat the Budget Vultures: Demand Medicare for All

Driven to lower taxes on the wealthy, Congress prepares to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Lowering what the Federal government spends on health care allows for lowering the taxes on the wealthy. Never mind that this will push costs onto already strained state budgets and drive more Americans into bankruptcy. The budget vultures are circling.  Americans have come to depend upon the good that the ACA has accomplished. The problems that remain are based on its being built upon ... 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. The Estes Park League of Women Voters sponsored a Candidate Forum on September 22 that conveyed the platforms of both candidates. What was most concerning in this opportunity to hear the ...

Tom Donnelly for Commissioner

Tom Donnelly for Commissioner

Tom Donnelly is the proven choice for Larimer County Commissioner. Tom’s record of achievement as our county commissioner clearly supports his re-election. Tom is a husband and father of four and from his farming roots to his current service as Larimer County Commissioner, Tom is a hard worker. He demonstrates respect for you and I by his day to day commitment to what’s important to us – lowering the cost of government while providing significant positive impact by local ... Full Story

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. Science, not intuition, tells me why the polar ice is melting and why our trout streams are warming. In 2004 Colorado adopted the forward thinking goal of 30% of our electrical power coming ...

Sweeny for HD 49
