Dear Editor:Democrats need to vote for a candidate in the primary who understands Colorado, has a record of standing strong on our issues and can be elected: Ken Salazar.Ken has had a 20-year career of public service in Colorado. He stood up to an illegal Republican redistricting scheme, and he fought against corporate polluters by creating the state’s first environmental crimes unit.He opposed Referendum A, which called for the wholesale transfer of water from the West Slope. He founded Great Outdoors Colorado, which provided funds to preserve the Rock Bottom Ranch near Aspen.Ken Salazar is well-known and well respected. We have an opportunity to elect a senator who has demonstrated his commitment to our issues. Sue MaischJim SybertGlenwood Springs
