Ken Salazar, man of vision

Dear Editor:In the upcoming election, it is uncertain as to what part Colorado will play in determining the next president. However, it is clear that Colorado will have an important part in shaping this country’s future by who this state decides will be its next senator. Given the divergent views and qualifications that exist between the two candidates, it is imperative that the electorate makes the correct decision.I met Ken Salazar in 1998, when he was a candidate for his first term as attorney general. As attorney general, Mr. Salazar has proven that he can address tough issues with strength and character. Following the tragedy at Columbine, Mr. Salazar traveled throughout the state to address students and the issues of bullying. I had the honor of attending the assembly at Aspen High School. Ken showed a compassion and understanding that was simply impressive.I have no doubt that Ken Salazar will serve the nation and Colorado well in the U.S. Senate. Ken Salazar has pledged to restore jobs and fight for the American middle class. Ken Salazar has pledged to enact responsible tax-cuts for low- and middle-income workers, their families and small businesses and roll back the Bush Administration tax cuts that have benefited 1 percent of America’s wealthiest citizens.Many other issues of utmost importance will face our next senator. On each and every issue, Ken Salazar stands out as a man of vision and leadership. I encourage everyone to support Ken Salazar for the U.S. Senate.James R. TrueAspen
