  • District map amendments deserve our vote

    One thing most people can agree on that it offends our sense of fair play when politicians try to stack the deck for their own benefit. One issue that generates especially negative reactions is gerrymandering.

    Delay would help heal the divisiveness
    On Sept. 2, this message was sent to Colorado’s senators:
    We must defer the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh until after the election of 2018. If the will of the people continues, the Republican majority in the Senate, they the people are confirming his nomination. If, on the other hand, the Democrats take control of the Senate, the people are speaking out for a change.
    Considering the far-reaching term of a justice, this delay would not be significant.

  • What we can learn from John McCain

    I believe that a leader must be about more than conducting the day-to-day business of the organization he or she leads. A true leader stands for the principles and traditions that bind us to that organization and cause us to be proud of being part of something unusually good and worth supporting.
    I recently was reminded of the words of Sen. John McCain when he was nominated to be the Republican candidate for president.

    RTD service cuts are wrong
    RTD radically cut bus service to and from Evergreen today. (Ironic since RTD provides no bus service at all to Evergreen on weekends.)
    Evergreen public transportation service was extremely limited to begin with: only a handful of buses to and from the city, weekday mornings and evenings only. These cuts make it nearly impossible for Evergreen residents to use mass transit to and from work and school.

    Thanks for paving downtown Evergreen
    I want to extend my thanks to Commissioner Tina Francone and 25th  
    House District Rep. Tim Leonard for their work with the Colorado Department of Transportation to place the paving of downtown Evergreen on their schedule and get it done. It’s been a long time coming, and the curb-to-curb paving is a great job. To get it  done in one night is super!
