Letter: Gardner represents the people of Colorado


As I sit here on the eve of the one year anniversary of the devastating floods in Colorado, I pause in admiration for the people of Colorado — especially those most affected by the flooding. I recognize those also in Larimer County — those who lost so much in the High Park Fire in 2012 and those who lost so much in the flooding last year. So many of you are still working toward restoring your lives as much as possible; some of you will never be able to get back to where you were before, but we pray for your full recovery.

When I heard then what Congressman Cory Gardner was doing here regionally, I took notice. Congressman Gardner surveyed the devastation first hand, listened to victims and called local representatives personally to ask how he could help upon his return to Washington. I gratefully recognized he was willing to fight for the people of Colorado that needed prompt and effective support. He worked with both sides of the aisle to funnel relief funds back home — Cory Gardner did the right thing then and wants to do the right thing in the future as your next Colorado Senator.

Cory Gardner continues to fight for the people of Colorado that need to be effectively represented while he fights for us in Washington. Please join me in voting for Cory Gardner for Colorado senator.
