A Nation of Immigrants (with video)

A Nation of Immigrants (with video)

We often refer to our country as “a nation of immigrants.”  For me, this concept is personal—my mom came to the United States in 1951 as a refugee, after being born in a Nazi concentration camp at the end of World War II.  My grandparents and my mom came here because of America’s commitment to freedom and opportunity for all.  Unfortunately, President Trump’s approach to…

Protecting Colorado’s Workers

Protecting Colorado’s Workers

Colorado’s economy is booming, and our unemployment rate has plummeted to one of the lowest in the nation. But the benefits of that economic growth aren’t shared by everyone. Many Coloradans still have trouble meeting mounting financial pressures from mortgages, student loans, medical bills, and other expenses. The Problems of Wage Theft, Anticompetitive Agreements, and Cutting Corners Too many workers aren’t paid their lawful wages—some…

Our Attorney General Needs to Lead on Gun Safety

The murder of 14 students and three staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida using an AR-15 semi-automatic weapon was tragic—and avoidable.  From its shadow, teenagers are using their voices and rejecting complacency, insisting that we can do better. Last Saturday, March 24th, I was proud to join young people from across our state at the March for Our Lives to…

The Imperative of Protecting Our Land, Air, and Water in the Twenty First Century

Our next Attorney General needs to be a leader in protecting our land, air, and water.  Over the last several years, our current Attorney General has undermined Colorado’s leadership in this area, seeking to undo the methane rule pioneered here in Colorado, providing bad legal advice to the Colorado Oil and Gas Commission, and threatening our state’s leadership in addressing climate change. We need and…

300 days – Can You Believe It?!

300 days – Can You Believe It?!

We kicked off this campaign 300 days ago and we’ve accomplished so much together. I want to focus on two stats that really illustrate the strength of our campaign: the number of volunteers and the number of counties I’ve visited. So far we’ve recruited more than 800 volunteers and been to 48 counties. To me, that shows that we’re getting out and talking to Coloradans about…
