    Doyle is best choice in HD25 to guide decisions on K-12 education

    Editor:

    Having served on the Jefferson County school board, we know firsthand the importance of collaboration — not only at the school board level but just as importantly at the state level. Decisions made by the Colorado legislature affect our children, our teachers and our public schools daily. A few examples of legislative action that affects our schools:

  • After review … the ruling on the field stinks

    We are being bombarded by the Ray Rice situation. The story is now bigger than a case of domestic violence, and it sure looks like the league swept it under the rug. Why is that a big story?

    The topics range from personhood to gambling to open meetings to food labeling. In a somewhat refreshing twist, two of the four proposals are initiated laws instead of amendments to our state constitution.
