Vote for Weiser for AG

With the approach of the June 26 primary election, most voters are focused on high profile races for Congress and governor, as well as local offices such as county commissioner and sheriff. Voters also need to decide on several other statewide offices, however.

The most important of these is the Colorado attorney general, who supervises an office of more than 400 lawyers and other employees and is charged, not only with representing state agencies, but with enforcing laws aimed at protecting Colorado’s environment, natural resources, and consumers. In the June primary, Democrats and independents will have an opportunity to vote for Phil Weiser to fill the AG’s position.

Phil’s legal and management experience make him uniquely qualified to run what is, in effect, the law office representing all Coloradans. He has worked at the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, at the Department of Justice under Presidents Clinton and Obama, and as dean of the CU law school, where he held tuition flat and doubled scholarships. He has litigated complex cases suing big companies on behalf of consumers and won important civil rights cases in Colorado. As AG, he has the background to effectively address issues such as the opioid crisis, health care costs, and the protection of our land, air, and water.

You can learn more about Phil by visiting his website, www.philforcolorado.com . I hope you will join me in voting for Phil Weiser for Colorado attorney general.
