School Starts Wednesday!

School starts Wednesday, August 17.  Three of our grandchildren, two sisters and a cousin,  will attend the Dr. Justina Ford Elementary which is the newest elementary school in Littleton Public Schools (LPS).  Those three children follow in the footsteps of their mothers, who also attended school in LPS.  The school is beautiful.  Our three kiddos are excited, and a little nervous.  Two are in kindergarten and one is a first grader.

Dr. Justina Ford was the first female African American physician in Denver.  After receiving her medical education in Illinoise she moved in 1902 to Denver, where she practiced medicine for over 50 years.   She practiced family medicine, obstetrics and pediatrics.  She delivered over 7,000 babies.  She died at the age of 81 and she saw patients up to two weeks before her death.  

Racial discrimination  prohibited Ford from joining the Colorado Medical Association, or practicing in a hospital. She was undetered and set up a practice in her home on 2026 Arapahoe Street, and later she expanded into a larger building at 2335 Arapahoe Street.

Dr. Justina Ford treated anyone who needed medical care.  Many of her patients were poor whites, African-Americans, and non-English speaking immigrants who were turned away from hospitals. She treated anyone who needed medical care, regardless of their ability to pay.  To help her patients Ford learned multiple languages.  She received pay in goods, services, or money.

It wasn’t until 1950 that Dr. Ford was allowed into the Colorado and American Medical Associations. At that time she was the only female African-American doctor in all of Denver.

Moving Day!

My daughter is moving from Texas to Colorado.  I'm looking forward to having these two cuties close to us.  Grandkids are great!  

All kids deserve to grow up in a safe, affordable Colorado with excellent education choices.  

I am a grandfather, but I am not old and satisfied with the status quo.  I know we can do better.  

Today is moving day towards reversing current policies that have made Colorado less safe, and affordable.  Everyday I am working hard to earn your vote, so we can make the move!  I want to support law enforcement and work with private organization for homelessness solutions.  I want to reduce fees on construction of housing and examine regulations to be sure they are serving constituients.  I alway support parent educational choice.   For details check out my issues page, or join us at an event.  Volunteer!  We can make a difference.

PAUL ARCHER HOPES TO CAPTURE OPEN SEAT IN HD37

Politics / By / July 6, 2022

GOVERNMENT REPORTER

Paul Archer, president of Automated Business Products, is the GOP candidate for state House District 37. He will face Democrat Ruby Dickson, an Oxford-trained economist, in the November 8 election. After last year’s redistricting, HD37 includes Greenwood Village, western Centennial, and Foxfield. It is an open seat because the previous occupant, Tom Sullivan (D), is running for state Senate District 27. After the 2021 redistricting, 45% of HD37’s 60,269 active voters are unaffiliated and 44% are split evenly between the Democrats and the Republicans.

Congressional candidate Steve Monahan, who was in the U.S. Navy band, displayed his sublime vocal skills on two songs, including “Sweet Caroline,” at Archer’s insistence.

Mark Gotto, candidate for Arapahoe County Commissioner district two, said he looked forward to campaigning with Archer after the June 28 primary.

On June 23, NextGen’s Charlie McNeil and Judy McNeil, together with 2018 gubernatorial candidate Doug Robinson and Diane Robinson, hosted a fundraiser for Archer in the McNeils’ Cherry Hills Village home. Among the over 50 people attending were Steve Monahan (R), who is challenging U.S. Rep. Jason Crow (D) in CD6, and Mark Gotto (R), hoping to be the next Arapahoe County Commissioner for District Two, a seat currently held by Nancy Sharpe, who is term-limited. Also in the enthusiastic crowd was local favorite Deborah Flora, who came this-close to challenging for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate this year. Keeping everyone on track at the event was Greenwood Village personal trainer Carol Gibbs.

In his address to the crowd, Archer quoted a newspaper article as saying that the cost of housing has gone up 54% in one year. Archer shared that it recently cost him $100 to fill up his Toyota Sequoia, adding that, “This 8.6% inflation thing is grossly understated.”

Archer told his supporters that, “Every single day, on Next Door (social media site), someone is reporting a crime.” He also said that Colorado is number one in the country for auto theft and second for property theft. Data from the National Insurance Crime Bureau lists only two metropolitan statistical areas in California as having higher car theft rates than the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metropolitan statistical area and the FBI ranks Colorado as trailing only Louisiana and New Mexico in property crime. By any measure, our state ranks in the top three nationally for per capita theft.

On education, Archer said, “Our public schools are failing too many kids today; 60% of Colorado kids today cannot read at grade level and 70% cannot do math at grade level.” Archer concluded, “We’ve seen a teacher’s union that doesn’t care about kids.”

The candidate told his supporters that he is running because, “Every one of those things are happening because of the administration that’s been in power,” adding that, “Everything that’s happening is because the legislature went soft on crime and then they made it hard for police officers…They took away the prestige of being a police officer and we’ve lost tons of really good police officers in Colorado.” 

On energy, Archer said, “We went from energy independent to energy dependence in 18 months.”

He promised, “We can do something about that and we can do something about education. We can get more money into the classroom. We can get more transparency to parents…We can even get school choice. That would be awesome.” 

Focusing on his values, Archer said, “What matters to me a lot is the America that our kids are growing up into, the America where too many kids are being taught that this is a bad place, that this is an evil place, that this place is full of hate, and so on… I think that the legislature can make a difference in respecting the greatness of the country.”

100 Ways Jared Polis and Democrats in Colorado Legislators are doubling down on Joe Biden's failed policies and making it more difficult in Colorado

With just under 100 days until the election, citing Heidi Ganahl's website, we are bringing to light the 100 ways Jared Polis with help from the democrat controlled legislator is doubling down on Joe Biden’s failed policies and making it more difficult for Coloradans to live, work, and raise a family.

This list is growing by the day and will be updated daily on the new website: ThePolisTax.com.

At a time when the price of food and goods is at a record high, Jared Polis quietly implemented a 27-cent tax on all deliveries. That applies to everything from DoorDash, to Amazon, to groceries, to your Friday night pizza. The new fee, which went into effect July 1st, will fund electric vehicles and unlike your salary, it will increase with inflation. It’s part of Senate Bill 21-260 which includes several more hidden taxes we will highlight along this 100-day journey.   SB21-260 is Polis’ master plan to get around voters by splitting up the fees and funneling them into five new enterprises – only one of which can even portend to be about actually fixing our roads. Don't take our word for it, their names speak for themselves: Community Access Enterprise, Clean Fleet Enterprise, Clean Transit Enterprise, Nonattainment Area Air Pollution Mitigation Enterprise, and Statewide Bridge and Tunnel Enterprise. Hmm. And people wonder why we can’t “fix the damn roads.” Perhaps that is because Polis is more concerned about taxing us so much we cannot afford to drive our cars and trucks.  
Think gas prices are bad now? They are guaranteed to get much worse next summer, and Jared Polis is thrilled about it. Gas prices will be going up 51 cents a gallon because the EPA has deemed Colorado as a “severe polluter.” That means gas stations will have to start selling California-grade gas the EPA says will emit fewer pollutants. Jared Polis wanted this ruling from the EPA. In fact, he never submitted the science showing that a significant portion of our state’s pollution came from beyond state lines. Even Polis’ predecessor John Hickenlooper submitted the waiver that prevented this from happening. Governor Polis has always said he won’t seek the exemption because again, it’s part of his Green New Deal that you the taxpayer are paying without your approval.
Jared Polis would like us to forget what many small business owners in Colorado cannot: he signed 393 executive health orders, including some that shut down small businesses. Polis’ executive orders closed 28.4% of small businesses during the beginning of the pandemic. He picked the winners and losers - claiming some businesses were essential and could remain open and others were not. Small businesses make up 99.5% of our Colorado businesses and employ more than 45% of our workers. A few months after Polis’ 2020 shutdowns, Colorado’s GDP dropped more than 8% and Employment dropped 15%. The only thing Heidi Ganahl will mandate as governor is freedom.

Honoring July 4th

This July 4th finds us in Chiange Mai, Thailand.  It’s beautiful here.  However, we miss being in Colorado for Fireworks.  We have many great memories of taking in fireworks at Clement Park.  We have also enjoyed fireworks in Highlands Ranch, Breckenridge, Fraser and at Coors Field.  We love the celebrations of America. 

Two hundred and fourty six years ago 13 British Colonies stated their collective intent to leave the Crown and form a new nation.  “The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” 

And thus began the foundation of the greatest country this planet has ever seen.  We appreciate so much the Founders’ courage and vision as they established and built this new nation.  They established a government which is accountable to the people, not one which subjegates a people to the government as had historically been the case. 

Happy 4th of July, everyone.  It’s wonderful to be an American.

Thrilled with Colorado Primary Election Outcome 2022

I’m thrilled with the primary election outcome in Colorado.  Heidi Ganahl and Joe O’Dea are going to be a great top of the ticket team for all Republicans in Colorado.  They are terrific people who will be great for Colorado and the nation.  The rest of the state wide office candidates are really strong.  The Republican lineup for State Senate and State House are great people with the right priorities and the ability to get things done.  Making Colorado affordable, making Colorado safe, and opening education opportunities for all Coloradoans will be our focus the next 4 months and into office.  It's a bright new day filled with opportunity.

Congratulations Colorado Avalanche – 2022.

Congratulations Colorado Avalanche – 2022.  The last two minutes of Game 6 were as long as any two minutes in my memories.  Our Boys prevailed.  All Coloradoans are united tonight in our pride in the Avalanche.  WE are all Avalanche Fans!

I loved two things as the game wrapped up.  First - The final horn and the on ice celebration of this team, our team, that has worked so hard to bring Lord Stanley’s Cup to Colorado for the 3rd time.  Second – the two teams – champions both, lined up and shaking hands and often hugging,  after a hard fought Stanley Cup Series.  That is one of the great traditions in all of sport.
