Vote for Griswold

You’ve probably chosen a gubernatorial candidate. What about other statewide offices? Do you know about those candidates and their positions on our important issues?

The secretary of state is charged with managing elections including registering voters and protecting every eligible voter’s rights regardless of their politics. The election may be partisan but the responsibilities are not.

Jena Griswold is the right person for the job and the only woman on the statewide ballot. She’s a public servant, not a politician, and a voter rights lawyer. She brought hundreds of millions of federal funding dollars to Colorado after the terrible 2013 floods.

Jena’s vision for secretary of state includes making it more convenient and easy to vote, and protecting our voter data. She’ll work for automatic voter registration; expanded polling center hours; continuous cybersecurity improvement to repel foreign infiltrators; and better campaign finance transparency so we know the source of Colorado election donations. If these were incumbent Wayne Williams’ goals, they’d have been accomplished in the past four years.

Wayne’s priorities concern me. He admitted he still practices as a private attorney, even representing clients suing Colorado. Also, we taxpayers bought him a $1,500 cowboy outfit. Neither is illegal, but appearances matter. At a time when many Coloradans make far less than Wayne’s $68,500 and are struggling to pay for rent, health care and college, this sets a poor example.

Electing Jena will bring strong leadership to better serve the people of Colorado.
