Unlike mayoral candidate Romer, Mejia is better than ‘OK’ and ‘not Satan’

Dear Editor,

A recent column in The Statesman by a Western Slope Republican with no ties to Denver (“Not a GOP in sight? Romer’s right pick as Mayor for center and right Democrats” by Josh Penry) urged Denver Republicans to base their vote in the Denver Mayor’s race by choosing the candidate they felt “fits somewhere on the spectrum between ‘OK’ and ‘not Satan.’” This odd recommendation apparently implies that none of the candidates running for Mayor have sufficient qualifications to be considered better than “OK.”

What happened to civility?

Dear Editor,

The personal attacks levied by The Statesman combined with the inaccuracies in the article “Morse complaint turned over to ethics committee,” March 25, 2011, seem to have caused confusion among those at the Capitol and others in political circles. Let me correct the inaccuracies.
