Hamner for District 61

Dear Editor:

I am writing to express my support of Millie Hamner for Colorado State House District 61. Millie’s commitment to this district is exceptional. I am very impressed at how available she has made herself to our community. She is here often, and she is ready to listen.

While I would like to thank Kathleen Curry for her past service in the Statehouse, I have some serious reservations about her decision to run yet again. For one, as Curry is running as an unaffiliated party member, she will not be able to gain important seats on committees that could be truly meaningful to the constituents of our district. While Curry might have name recognition here, her ability to influence and make important policy decisions would be severely compromised in Denver.

The current partisanship bickering playing out in Washington, D.C., is not indicative of the way our local state government is run. We have members who work together across party lines to get the budget balanced and look sincerely at policy that is good for Coloradans. Millie Hamner is one of these people, and her track record proves it. Join me in voting for Millie for Statehouse this Nov. 6.
