Mark Udall: Collaboration delivered

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.

Jessie Dunlop: Calling all wilderness warriors

Calling all wilderness lovers. Midterm elections approach quickly, and so does our opportunity to exercise our right to vote.

Bob Beauprez: Colorado, we can do better

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.

John Hickenlooper: Building on a strong foundation

Despite devastating fires and a historic flood — despite 13 federally declared disasters — we have not merely survived; overall, our state has thrived.

Wendy Lind: Votes 'yes' on 3A

It’s seemingly simple — check a button on the polling computer or fill in a box on the mail-in ballot. However, as we all know, the circumstances behind each of those boxes are often anything but simple.

Jeremy Johnston: Support Prop. 105

Don’t you think that you have a right to know what’s in your food? In response to your editorial, “Our View: Proposition 105 is costly and confusing,” here are a couple of facts to help clear up some misconceptions about Prop. 105 and genetically modified organisms.

Kevin Copeland: Facts 1st on coal

A good historian first will research all available information, then cross reference the data in order to concur that factual events indeed took place. This information should not in any way be infused with personal views or beliefs in order to make a political statement that might be construed as actual recorded history.

Ann C. Ball: ‘Yes’ to transparency

Steamboat Springs public schools are funded with our public tax dollars, and that money should be spent with transparency and accountability to the public.

Donald Ferry: Prop 105 truth

One would hope that truth and honesty would prevail in an editorial put out by Steamboat Today. That does not appear to be the case regarding your editorial on Proposition 105 being costly and confusing.

Betsy Markey: Accountability, not partisanship

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.

Walker Stapleton: Protecting taxpayers across state of Colorado

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.

Brodie Farquhar: History check

I’m afraid Mr. Meglen’s grasp of American and constitutional history (Oct. 18, 2014) is severely impaired by watching Fox News and apparently listening exclusively to Rush, Hannity, Bill O and Beck.

Don Quick: Fighting to keep communities safe

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.

Cynthia Coffman: Experience brings continuity to office

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.

Drew Peternell: Making the Clean Water Act work

Farmers and ranchers are the original conservationists in the West, and they’re also a key ally to conservation groups, such as Trout Unlimited, working to keep our streams and fisheries healthy. In recent decades, Trout Unlimited has collaborated with farmers and ranchers on hundreds of win-win stream restoration projects in Colorado and across the West.
