  • Editor:

    I am responding to the submission presented by Glenn Murray dated Oct. 21. I very much appreciate Mr. Murray’s op-ed as it was presented in a tasteful and thought-provoking manner, which was not the case with a previous submission.

    As the election season comes to an end, we — like many others — have been bothered by the negative and often untrue advertisements about certain candidates. None have been more bothersome to us than the statements made about Don Quick, a candidate for Colorado Attorney General.

  • Dear Editor,

    I have three major roles in my life currently. The first is to be a good husband; the second is to be good father and role model to my children and to do my best as a member of the Board of Education for the families of School District 27J.

    I just mailed my ballot in, and I voted for Andrew Romanoff because as a teacher here in Brighton, I know that Romanoff will do what is best for our city, state, and country. 

  • Editor:

    I am writing this letter in strong support of 3B, School District 27J’s bond request for $148 million to construct new schools in Brighton, Commerce City, and Thornton. The successful request will also provide additional classroom space at current school sites throughout the district and provide upgrades in every existing building. The specific projects can all be found on the School District 27J website at www.sd27j.org.

  • Even the toughest political junkie gets tired of it all after a while.

    The never-ending stream of mailers, phone calls, TV commercials and sniping from party operatives on social media has made me sick of even thinking about our fine democratic process, and we still have another week yet to go, perhaps more if the tightest races become recounts.

  • Celestino Martinez, 73, of Henderson, Nev., and formerly of Thornton, passed away Oct. 13, 2014. He was born to Michael and Rebecca (Cordova) Martinez.

    Celestino is survived by children, Bernice Martinez, Linda Skrocki and Nick Martinez; eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

    In 2011, Commissioner Erik Hansen joined the three-member Board of Adams County Commissioners of which I was already a member. He came in with a plan to reform county government policies and procedures and have transparency. With enthusiasm, I jumped on the bandwagon with my second vote. 

  • Editor:

    This November, Coloradans will have the opportunity to make history by voting “Yes” on Proposition 105 which requires labeling on genetically engineered foods. Colorado ranks as one of the most health conscious states in the nation, so it stands to reason that we would want to know what’s in our food. Sixty-four countries around the world including the European Union already have labeling. Why don’t we?

  • Editor:

    The best measure of a legislator resides not in what they say, but in what they do. Specifically what legislation they sponsor, vote for, and enact into law.

    By this measure, Sen. Udall has an excellent record in looking out for Colorado and the nation. He supported legislation creating jobs, advancing immigration reform, aiding fire and flood recovery, protecting women’s and veteran’s rights, and protecting civil liberties.

    Disappoint the Democratic Party failed to properly screen their candidate for clerk and recorder, Brighton City Councilwoman Cynthia Martinez.

  • Editor:

    I am voting for Jan Pawlowski because I have known her for at least 40 years. We worked together on the Brighton Softball Association. For at least 10 years we built and rebuilt the fields on Eighth and Southern.

  • Editor:

    I’m an educator here in Brighton, and for me, there’s no question that Andrew Romanoff is the right choice for Congress. When he was Speaker of the Colorado House, Andrew led efforts to repair crumbling schools, increase early childhood education, promote STEM programs in schools, and so much more.

  • Editor:

    I’ve been proud to represent Adams County in the state Legislature for over 14 years, and during that time I’ve served with some extraordinarily capable individuals who are committed to moving our state forward. However, among them, Andrew Romanoff, former Speaker of the House and candidate in the Sixth Congressional District, stands out as one of the most effective, bipartisan leaders with whom I have served. 

  • Editor:

    It is time for School District 27J to wisely utilize the facilities they already have. It makes no sense to close the schools for three months. It makes no sense to leave all those buses sitting idle in the sun and deteriorating for three months.

  • Here we go again…our state has become ground-zero for yet another ill-conceived and misleading scare campaign.
