The 2014 General Election is a mail ballot election. Mail ballots were sent to all eligible voters to the address on their voter registration, beginning Oct. 14.
Long before I was a state senator, before becoming a small-business owner but right after I had started my own family, I became a licensed professional engineer. I was motivated by the opportunity to better my wife and children, and I loved the opportunity to fix things and to solve complex problems. Along the way, I became inspired by the Engineer’s Code of Ethics.
Throughout the past four years, it has been an honor representing Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. We have seen our economy marginally improve during the past four years, but as you know, we still have a long way to go.
My name is Wayne Williams, El Paso County clerk and recorder and candidate for Colorado Secretary of State. Seventeen years ago, I first served on the Canvass Board overseeing elections. I saw firsthand the importance of fair and accurate processes.
My name is Joe Neguse, and I am running for secretary of state for a very simple reason: I believe that the right to vote is sacred. My parents came to this country more than 30 years ago from a war torn country in East Africa.
Coloradans are independent thinkers who expect candidates for office to present a clear and positive vision for the future of our state.
Friends, throughout history it has been common to ask, “If not us, who, and if not now, when?” That question resonates this election season.
Nearly six years ago, the people of Colorado sent me to the U.S. Senate on a promise to bring Colorado common sense to Washington. With the nation reeling from two wars in the Middle East and an economy hobbled by a financial crisis, we needed a change.
The fate of a proposed property tax increase in downtown Steamboat Springs rests in the hands of downtown business owners like Wendy Lyon.
Opportunity that used to come here is passing us by. Good jobs that have supported our communities are being threatened, and some have left the state. We see economic numbers telling us that there’s pockets of good news, but in much of the state, families still are waiting for the recovery to show up at their kitchen table.
Despite devastating fires and a historic flood — despite 13 federally declared disasters — we have not merely survived; overall, our state has thrived.
Voters this election season will not find the names of James Garrecht and Shelley Hill on yard signs.
Political volunteers might want to set down their phones just before 6:30 p.m. Thursday, when the Denver Broncos take to Sports Authority Field to take on the rival San Diego Chargers.
Hello, fellow Coloradans. I am running to be your next state treasurer. Many of you know that I have more than 30 years experience running two successful businesses, working in the public sector in the Departments of Treasury and Homeland Security and, of course, Congress.
It has been an honor to serve as your state treasurer for the past 3 1/2 years. Since taking office in January 2011, I have woken up each day focused on protecting Colorado’s taxpayers. Too often, politicians need to be reminded that your hard-earned tax dollars should be protected and not used as their personal piggy bank.
I am running to be Colorado’s next attorney general to protect all that makes Colorado great: our people, our communities and our natural treasures. I’ve spent my career as a prosecutor, not a politician, and I know by working together, we can build a safer and stronger Colorado.
I have been honored to serve as your chief deputy attorney general for the past 9 1/2 years. As second-in-command of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, I have worked with General John Suthers to build an exceptional public law office for the state and its residents.
I am running to represent the 3rd Congressional District on the State Board of Education because I think that all children in Colorado deserve access to a high-quality education.
I’m Marcia Neal, and I’m running for re-election to the State Board of Education for a second term. I’m a Colorado native and have lived in Grand Junction all of my adult life. I have 25 years in the classroom, mostly as a history teacher. I then served eight years on the Board of Education in Mesa County. In 2008, I was elected to the State Board.
I am Cari Hermacinski, and I’d like to be your Routt County commissioner. As a lifelong resident of the Yampa Valley, I want to work to make certain Routt County stays a place for future generations to prosper and enjoy.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of Routt County as your commissioner and look forward to earning your vote to continue to manage the future of Routt County.
