Curry backs Schwartz
Dear Editor:I am writing today to express my support for Gail Schwartz’s campaign for the Senate District 5 seat. Senate District 5 overlaps a portion of the house district that I have represented for the past two years, so I have had an opportunity to get to know Gail. There are a number of reasons that I believe Gail would be an effective advocate for this district her commitment to serve the interests of the district, her experience, and her energy all make me believe that she would be a great senator for us.I think that anyone running for office is trying to do two things at this point in the election cycle – first, candidates must convince people to vote for them, and second, candidates must demonstrate that they will be effective once they get to the Capitol. Gail’s tireless effort to gain the support of voters during this campaign phase really stands out – but even more important, I believe that she has the qualities needed to actually get things done at the statehouse.I know firsthand that Gail will do her homework. I believe that she will always remember who put her in office. I know she will do all she can to advocate for the interests of Senate District 5. And I can see that she knows how to get things done.Gail has my support because there is a lot at stake right now for rural Colorado. With so many critical issues on our plate, Gail’s experience as an advocate for education and business is needed at the statehouse. I hope you too will support her election to the Colorado State Senate.Representative Kathleen CurryGunnison, Colo.

It might be public service serving on Aspen City Council but it doesn’t pay enough, the majority of electeds say. That’s why they are proposing to give their successors a $12,000 raise.
