• LETTER: Dave Rose for council

        Dear Voters in Ward 4:
        I would like to highly recommend Dave Rose as our next councilman. I have known Dave for a long, long time and he is always fair and listens to all sides of the issues. I also know he always did a lot of work before council meetings so he was well prepared.
        Dave is always kind and caring, no matter whether he is dealing with adults or children. I believe he is the best choice for Ward 4. VOTE FOR DAVE!
    Jimmie L. Mitchell

  • LETTER: One no vote for Prop. AA

       Dear Editor:
        This election, Colorado voters will consider Proposition AA, a 15-percent sales tax plus a 15-percent excise tax on marijuana sales. Colorado has never taxed a particular industry or product at this high of a rate. These taxes would be in addition to the Federal, State, and Local taxes already in place on marijuana. Federal taxes on marijuana businesses and consumers are already higher than any other industry due to the inability of these businesses to take full deductions.

  • LETTER: Kniss deserves Ward 1 council seat

     Residents of Ward 1, I am writing to endorse Joan Kniss as Councilwoman for your Ward. I have known Joan in a professional capacity and as a friend for a number of years. She is an amazing woman who can multi-task like no one I have ever known.

  • Thanks to all who helped in our time of mourning

        I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the outpouring of love and support that has been shown to my family over this past week after the loss of my sister, Lesley Moore Franco. Friends, many of whom we hadn’t seen in over 10 years, dropped everything to attend the services for my sister with very little notice. Friends drove hundreds of miles through the night with small children to be here. Family immediately boarded planes, and those that shared stories and comforting words from long distances.
