Letter to the editor:Champion a bipartisan representative

Posted

Response to a letter to the editor by Blair Johnson of Littleton (Littleton Independent, Sept. 3):

Blair Johnson’s lack of research skills and obvious bias jumps out in his op-ed. (District 38) Representative Richard Champion is well known in the House for being a bi-partisan representative, much to his own party’s surprise and occasionally their dismay.

Champion voted aye on 200 bipartisan bills, and aye to at least 29 Dem bills. Those 29 he voted aye on were a varying range of issues; among them were bills to keep children safe and impose harsher penalties on child abusers, more transparency and accountability on Big Pharma, and health care access for Coloradoans with behavioral health needs.

Champion volunteered and served with distinction for six years in the U.S. Army during Vietnam, but was maligned by those against the war, and even spit on for serving our country during those years. Rep. Champion has decades of community and volunteer service especially as an advocate for women and children’s services.

And unlike career government employee David Ortiz, Champion actually knows what it’s like to sign the front of a paycheck.

All three branches of government are controlled by Dems in Colorado. If you didn’t like the way our state was looking and operating before COVID, I’d suggest not giving more power to the party that claims to have all the solutions with your tax dollars — yet consistently produces zero results.

I suggest Colorado needs a Champion.
