Colorado General Assembly

I don’t know about you, but when I come home with “single-use plastic bags” from Walmart or (ideally) Target, they are never just “single-use” for me. It’s something I learned from my mom — and my siblings and friends are the same way. I can sometimes get two or three uses out of a plastic […]

Let’s be real: Colorado’s roads suck.  We’re long overdue for improvements of our crumbling roads and bridges; in some places, expansions or new construction are necessary.  But as with anything government does, you have to pay for it somehow.  Leading Democratic legislators are gearing up to drive a sweeping, $4 billion transportation bill.  Reports indicate […]

As terror swept over Boulder on Monday afternoon, all of Colorado watched in horror at what was happening. For hours, we simply knew there was an “active shooter situation” at the King Soopers on Table Mesa, with hundreds of law enforcement officers and first responders on the scene. Speculation gripped social media, with grim answers […]

In 2013, Colorado became the third state to implement statewide vote-by-mail – meaning we’ve had extensive experience leading the nation when it comes to mail-ballot elections. Since then, Colorado has improved and enhanced our system, learning from mistakes and generating more best-practices. On a few occasions (such as SB17-305 and HB19-1278), we’ve made significant reforms […]

It was a bright and sunny June morning. Running a little behind getting out of the house, I moved with purpose to my car…but it was nowhere to be found. My vehicle was stolen – subsumed into the reported 70.6% increase in motor vehicle theft cases in Aurora last year. In the broader Denver-Metro area, […]

It was Dec. 6, 1983.  Blues/rock guitar god Stevie Ray Vaughan, then just 29 and not yet a blip on the music radar screen, was set to join blues legend Albert King, then twice his age, for a televised jam session in Hamilton Ontario, Canada.  The performance was recorded live for a TV show called In […]

For four years, we heard constant, confident claims from many quarters that the Republican Party was the exemplar of failed leadership.  It’s certainly debatable, but the drumbeat was incessant for years. Now, as Democrats solidify control both here in Colorado and in Washington, D.C., we must all assess whether the party in power offers the […]

Last week, the Colorado Supreme Court decreed that the legal qualification for “common-law marriages” can now apply to same-sex couples, even though the U.S. Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges only took place in 2015.   And guess what: I didn’t hear a peep from Colorado Republicans about it  Maybe I missed something, but […]

Today, the General Assembly is gaveling in for the third and final day of the “first part” of its legislative session before it adjourns until a likely February 16 return. In truth, Coloradans of all stripes should feel embarrassed by its legislative leadership’s failure to meet its constitutional duties and do the people’s business in […]

In 2020, college really hasn’t been all it’s cracked up to be.  Students should be forgiven if they are paying an arm and a leg, racking up tens of thousands in debt and griping about their subpar experience.  That’s because they’re right to complain.  “We sell the entire university experience to our students and their parents,” Regis […]
