Today, Gov. Polis, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Secretary of State Jenna Griswold, Attorney General Phil Weiser and Denver Clerk and Recorder Paul López will hold a press conference about Colorado’s vote-by-mail (VBM) experience to “push back on President Trump’s false attacks against” mail-ballots.  It’s obviously a coincidence the event is being held on day one of the […]

Colorado’s Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner has accomplished a lot, often in ways that don’t get much attention.  Aug. 4 marked two such achievements: one on environmental conservation and another on Olympics abuse reforms.  Both will have widescale impacts.  Last Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed Gardner’s Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) into law.  The Senate, in an effort led by […]

Portland and Seattle, meet Denver and Aurora.  For the sixth consecutive year, supporters of Colorado’s law enforcement gathered in Civic Center Park on the third Sunday in July for the permitted, Pro-Police Rally Colorado.  Unlike in past years, 2020’s Law Enforcement Appreciation Day event on July 19 was no family-friendly affair.  Rather, it was marred by violence and […]

As a proud product of Cherry Creek Schools, I was both pleased and relieved when I learned the school district plans to reopen schools for in-person learning.  As I read up on its plan for reopening schools, I thought they hit the right marks.  The district intends to reopen schools for in-person PreK-12 learning and will continue […]

Last week, the Colorado State Board of Education unanimously approved a measure enabling school districts to “choose their own way of determining if (high school) students are proficient in English and math, instead of using the 11 ways the state had approved.” Not only does it make sense to ensure school districts can assess student performance […]

As the General Assembly readied its return to the people’s business, I urged the legislature to reassert its place in the constitutional order. “Emergency powers do not suspend state and federal constitutions and nullify laws,” I wrote on May 18.  “King Polis should be dethroned and demoted back to governor.  Let the General Assembly begin the revolution when […]

Joey Bunch reported Saturday in Colorado Politics that the Colorado Business Roundtable is hosting a July 8 “online discussion on women’s rights around the world with a panel of women in the state’s government, academia, business and philanthropy …”  Importantly, this teleconference panel will feature special guest Princess Reema bint Bandar Al Saud, serving as ambassador from […]

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  SB20-205 — paid sick leave — is an example of this.  In conference committee today, SB 205 would be disastrous for small business.  Let’s jump right in. According to the bill’s summary, through the end of 2020, “employers are required to provide each of their employees paid sick […]

What a difference two weeks can make. Back in my May 18 column, COVID-19 and Gov. Jared Polis were top of mind.  The disputed protests were peaceful gatherings of small-business owners pushed aside by out-of-touch politicians, and everyday citizens concerned about losing their jobs and their liberty. Now, coronavirus seems like a thing of the past.  All eyes, […]

I am the rare Colorado conservative who has given Gov. Jared Polis some credit for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.  I’ve said for several weeks that his performance has been superior to other Democrat governors, most notably Gretchen the Terrible of Michigan. That’s because he’s permitted Colorado to at least start reopening, says he’ll let […]
