Transcription:
Hi. My name is Phil Weiser, and I’m running to be Colorado’s next Attorney General. On the campaign trail, the question I get more than any other question is: what does the Attorney General do, anyway? So, let me tell you. The Attorney General oversees an office of 484 people, 270 lawyers, and those lawyers, they work for all of us. They represent every Coloradan, whether it’s our civil rights, our consumer rights, our rights as a worker, or protecting our land, air, and water. This office needs to have our back. But, this office doesn’t only bring lawsuits, even against the federal government. This office works with others, including our state legislature, County commissioners, district attorneys, county sheriffs – working together we can solve a range of challenges from criminal justice reform to the opioid crisis to ensuring that all Coloradans have access to broadband Internet access. This is something that I want to do as our next Attorney General because we need a leader in an office with energy, creativity, and vision… who can work effectively with others to solve problems. So, please, support us and join my campaign to become Colorado’s next Attorney General.
