  • District map amendments deserve our vote

    One thing most people can agree on that it offends our sense of fair play when politicians try to stack the deck for their own benefit. One issue that generates especially negative reactions is gerrymandering.

    When Jennifer Ford moved to the Denver-metro area, she worked as a substitute teacher at a variety of schools while searching for a permanent home that felt like the perfect fit.

    Addiction came quickly for Lemuel Lee.

    After being kicked out of his house at 11 years old, Lee started living on the streets, using and selling drugs. His addiction persisted, and for years, Lee worked his way in and out of the judicial system and ruined a lot of relationships.
