Letters to the Editor

Letter: State hiring is fully compliant with Amendment S, despite what you may have read

April 11, 2014

Dear State Employees:

You’ve heard us say before that facts matter. This week, The Denver Post published stories that misrepresent facts about state hiring. We wanted to take a few minutes today to give you information about state hiring so you can feel confident in your employer’s practices when you are talking with your friends, family and neighbors about your work.

Letter: Story on personhood shows ‘incredible biologic ignorance’

Dear Editor,

I recognize that Peter Marcus, in a story in the April 18 issue, attempted to do a comprehensive and unbiased look at personhood efforts that as he writes, “come back to haunt Republican candidates.”

That said, this comment is beyond the pale, exposing either incredible biologic ignorance or a thinly veiled attempt to mislead the reader.

“Supporters, however, say nothing in the proposed constitutional amendment would give protection to eggs, nor ban contraception.”

Letter: What about Swing voters?

Dear Editor,

I saw that the April 11 edition of The Colorado Statesman includes your one and a half page feature articles on each of two of the three candidates for U.S. Representative in the Sixth Congressional District. I also noticed that you neglected to mention what positions the Democratic and Republican candidates take on even a single public policy issue.

LETTER: Miller Hudson: Regarding your article on the Article…

Miller old buddy…
 
I just read your April 4 story in The Colorado Statesman about the March 27 Symposium on Article V. Great writing!

It has been many years now, but you will remember me from the years I edited and published LIFE on Capitol Hill, and we worked on various community activities together. These days I am focusing a lot of my “retirement years” time on furthering the Article V efforts around the country.

Playing it straight in Adams County

Dear Editor,

First I would like to thank the staff at The Colorado Statesman for the excellent coverage and photos at the Adams County Democratic Assembly on March 15 in Brighton. This was an extremely positive and important event that allowed all of the delegates an opportunity to listen to our outstanding candidates at the national and state level and to select candidates at the county and district levels.

Gessler needs to resign as SoS if he’s running for another office

Dear Editor,

Educate. Inform. Vote! So, here is my question? Scott Gessler is the current Colorado Secretary of the State. The Secretary of the State is in charge of the entire election process, from the start (Caucuses… Primaries) … to the General Election. The Secretary of the State is responsible for the integrity of ALL elections in Colorado. The Secretary of the State is in charge of e­-nsuring “Free & Fair” elections. If you don’t believe me, then here is Scott himself saying the exact same thing.

Boo hoo Hudak and other Democratic gems to be soon uncovered

Dear Editor,

I hope you will give an over-the-fold, front-page story investigation of the “neutral & objective” stonewalling by Governor Hickenlooper’s DORA official Barbara Kelley as you gave to the Hudak Hustle (aka Boo Hoo Hudak) in the Jan. 24 issue.

LETTER: Looking ahead to continued success for progressive causes

Dear Friends,

As the Huttner Group celebrates our third anniversary this month, we want to thank you for your continued advice, support and friendship.

As greedy corporations spend tens of millions on elections and lobbyists in D.C., the need for communications and investment in progressive efforts has never been greater.

This is where the Huttner Group has its greatest impact. We provide communications and fundraising strategy for game-changing efforts across the country.

LETTER: Reapportioning our state correctly has been a longtime goal

Dear Editor,

It has been a long time that I have been reading The Statesman. I’m looking forward to seeing my birthday mentioned in one of the regular lists next month because it will be my 80th. Sort of a personal goal, eh? If nothing else, it says that I’ve gone past the political starting gate without ever getting in the race.

LETTER: Hudson is right about middle class

Dear Editor,

Miller Hudson pretty much hit the nail on the head with his column in the Nov. 22 issue about moving America ahead and the growing income disparity between the middle class and the ultra wealthy. Although there is plenty of blame to go around, certainly the fact that America’s military and its political handmaidens (mostly in the Republican Party) continues to have a Cold War mentality that burdens us with supporting hundreds of bases all around the world that have less to do with national defense and much more with feathering the pockets of the defense industry and our so called “allies.”
