Mari Medrano Mejia: "As a business owner and as a Coloradan, I sympathize with the challenge of caring for a loved one that many of my employees face. I want to support them and that’s why I’ll vote 'no' on Proposition 118 — an expensive, lavish new program destined for bankruptcy."
Tracy duCharme: "As a small-business owner, I know that my success depends on my ingenuity, my dedication and my ability to think creatively. But it also depends on the employees I hire since it is my staff who interact with clients and are the face of my company. Proposition 118 will give my employees the security of having a paid leave option with job security when, at one point or another, they will need this coverage."
Ben Murrey: "There are countless reasons why now is the time for a modest 0.08% cut in the state’s income tax rate, though opponents may entice you to think otherwise."
Scott Wasserman: "When we look at Proposition 116, a proposed tax cut on the 2020 ballot, we need to ask a simple question: Who exactly wins if this passes? Unless you are among the top 3% of earners in the state, the answer is not you."
Kristi Burton Brown: "Restricting late-term abortions in Colorado shouldn’t be hard. 43 other states already do it."
Amanda Henderson: "Religious freedom should call us to the common good, rather than harm women and their families in the name of God. The decision to terminate a pregnancy is morally complex, and people of different religious traditions, as well as people within the same tradition, hold varying views on this matter. It is important that we respect the religious freedom of each individual by protecting the right to make our own faith-informed decisions about our reproductive lives."
Bob Beauprez: "There are many reasons to oppose Proposition 114, a radical plan to introduce gray wolves in western Colorado via ballot-box biology. Not the least of those reasons is the fact that gray wolves are already here."
Matt Barnes: "Where I ran cattle, I saw bears and coyotes often but never lost a calf to either. The cows, kept in a tight herd for planned grazing management, learned to mob up and fend off coyotes — or any other canine. That experience inspired me to work with ranches in the wolf and grizzly country of Montana and Wyoming."
Dick Wadhams: "Democratic elected officials are literally playing with fire when they continue to coddle the anarchists and extremists whose only agenda is to destroy public and private property."
Jonathan Christiansen: "Donald Trump, presumably because of his sharp decline in the polls, has recently decided that a strong law-and-order stance against recent protests will help him in his re-election bid, but he is wrong."
