Letter to the editor: Vote Johnston for governor


Vote Johnston for governor

I first heard Mike Johnston at Belmar Library on a Saturday afternoon back in March of 2017. There were over 45 engaged voters in attendance. Many were students, teachers and parents of former students who benefited from Mike’s teaching or leadership as principal of MESA (Mapleton Expeditionary School of the Arts), a public high school in North Denver. Folks asked great questions ranging from education, to prison reform, environmental issue, gun control and affordable housing. Mike had either worked on legislation to make improvements or had detailed ideas about how to make significant progress in dealing with these tough issues.

Inspired by his vision and authentic presence, I decided to volunteer for his campaign. Consistency and character are the prevailing reasons I believe that Mike is the real deal. His motivation to enter politics was to make in-state-tuition available for our dreamers. His Asset Bill passed with bipartisan support to make that happen.Mike has aproven track record of crossing political divides.

As a state senator, Mike built broad coalitions to move Colorado forward, passing over 100 bills with bipartisan support.  Mike has also been a leader on gun safety. Recently, he went to an N.R.A. meeting where 3 out of 4 NRA members he talked to said they would support Red Flag laws.

Strip down the narrative meant to divide us, what we find is that we need a governor who can work across the aisle and get things done for all of Colorado. That candidate is Mike Johnston!
