Right choice

Sen. Daniel Kagan made the right decision for the women of the state Senate in stepping down. There have been threats, student walkouts, and lockouts in a Weld County School District. It looks like a mess. There's a lot of money in campaign finance filing fines outstanding in Colorado.

Nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey, buh bye

Well, in a lengthy letter (j/k not really) Sen. Daniel Kagan has decided to resign his position in the Senate. This whole "Hickenlooper running for President" thing is real real, y'all.  The COGCC is looking at new rulemaking around schools and playgrounds.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em

The Feds are now pushing back against Denver's idea for "safe injection" sites comparing them to "crack houses."  The town of Fruita is banning smoking in public places.  Former Speaker Frank McNulty has added even more substance to his complaint against Governor Hickenlooper.

Hoisted on his own letter

A letter, published by CPR, written by Rep. Melton to one of the women he assaulted at the time right after he broke her tailbone makes it clear he needs to own up to his behavior - and thus far - he hasn't. Open enrollment time is a stressful time across the state, but especially in Colorado's

Talking to Denverites

The Gazette has a great piece this morning about how conservatives need to learn to talk to the new Denverites. Worth a read. The Governor and the Colorado Energy Office just awarded a company $10.33M to build 33 electric car charging stations. I hope they're really nice for that price tag. Senator Jack Tate has decided

Mr. Plow

Looks like Cory Gardner has a different solution to deal with student loan debt. One that is much more reasonable than Jared Polis' "cancel it all" plan. Democrats swooped in and fired the state Senate non-partisan staff the DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING. Now they're trying to walk it back-ish.  The state needs more snow plow drivers.

The more the merrier

Cory Gardner has his first official Democrat opponent. Good. The more Dems in that primary the better. Oil and gas has only just begun to fight.  Steve Schuck makes some great points about how our education system must start innovating.

Pulling Punches

Jared Polis says he wants a 3-5% decrease in the state income tax? Hadn't heard that one on the trail, but we'll be interested to see if he follows through with that.  Jared Polis in Congress advocated for canceling all student loan debt and the issue is back in the news - what will his philosophy

Party with Tesla

 A letter from Senator John Cooke to the AG's office is requesting an investigation into Hickenlooper's trip and tour of Tesla right before the implementation of new emission standards. There is some hope on the horizon for Colorado conservatives if we can pull it together on the messaging front.  Changes are afoot in Colorado's mental health

First Steps

 The FIRST STEP Act is getting a lot of national attention. Why was Polis part of the small minority who opposed it and what does that mean for Colorado Corrections? I guess Perlmutter will support Pelosi after all. #shock Bad news for Adams 14 - this could get ugly. We just hope people keep their eyes on
