Janice Marchman will bring new ideas to Colorado's Senate District 15 seat. The incumbent has a record of voting against common sense policy and against the public good.
Reporting a lost or stolen firearm to law enforcement so criminals don’t get their hands on it makes sense, right? Unfortunately, not to our current State Senator. He voted NO on the bill requiring lost or stolen firearms to be reported. Why vote NO on that bill? How about HB 19-1119 - Requiring Law Enforcement Internal Investigations to Become Public? Once again, our incumbent voted NO. Why would he not want the public to know about internal investigations of law enforcement actions? Transparency, communication and integrity are absolute necessities for our government and our elected officials.
We need someone that will bring common sense and accessibility to the Colorado Legislature. Janice Marchman is a Loveland math teacher, and former past Vice President of the Thompson School board, and trained Systems Engineer. She has the education, experience and dedication to represent us in the State Senate. Larimer and Boulder County deserve a strong, responsive voice in the Colorado Legislature. Please join me in voting for Janice Marchman this November
