Time for Gardner to go

This letter is in response to David Gilbert’s article about Senator Cory Gardner’s visit to Littleton. The article lists several businesses he visited and business owners with which he spoke, but provides few details about what Sen. Gardner will do, or has done to address their concerns, like protecting Medicaid, or dealing with climate change. In the article, Gardner is quoted, “This is a state that sends people of either party to office because they believe they'll work for them.” 

Yes, the people of Colorado sent Gardner to Washington because he campaigned as a moderate, independent voice, who would work for the people of Colorado. Instead he has shown he is a typical politician, who caves to Trump at every turn, and tows the party line without exception. He is not available to his constituents, and gives vague, non-committal answers when pressed on the issues. Cory Gardner needs to be replaced. 

I encourage voters to take a look at Dan Baer. Dan is a Colorado native. He has a passion for human rights work, and a background that has made him empathetic and resilient. He has valuable public service, foreign policy, and national security experience, but he is not a politician. 

Dan is traveling throughout the state to listen and learn how to best represent the people of Colorado. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Dan, and have thoroughly enjoyed speaking with him. He is intelligent, accomplished, and personable. We need to send non-traditional candidates like Dan to Washington, who will come at issues from a place of principle, not politics.
