Mayor Michael Hancock: "The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world as we know it. It has threatened our health, safety and economy, and transformed the way we live our lives. We often hear about the impacts of this virus at the state and federal level and the decisions being made there to protect people and slow the spread of the virus. What we might hear less about, however, are the local leaders on the front lines of our state who are charged daily with providing for their residents and implementing the public health measures that keep them safe."

George Athanasopoulos: "By the time you read this, Republican Lauren Boebert will have shocked Colorado’s political establishment by defeating five-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. Reverberations of this race will be felt around the country, with political prognosticators on all sides attempting to rewrite their own erroneous pronouncements while simultaneously trying to digest the consequences of an incumbent’s defeat."

Doug Robinson: "The marijuana industry hasn’t let the COVID-19 pandemic distract it from its single-minded fixation on congressional approval of the so-called SAFE Banking Act. The proposal would spur billions of dollars of new investment in marijuana companies by granting them greater access to the banking system. It would also bring the marijuana industry a step closer to its ultimate goal: full-scale national marijuana legalization." Continue Reading
