From the Pueblo Chieftain: NO MATTER who emerges victorious in the race for state Senate District 3, the ultimate winners will be the constituents.
Republican incumbent Sen. George Rivera is facing a tough challenge from State Rep. Leroy Garcia.
Sen. Rivera, a retired Pueblo deputy police chief, was elected following the recall of Angela Giron. He entered the Senate a complete novice with very little training and quickly grew into his role.
Sen. Rivera proved himself a constituent advocate early on when he introduced legislation to repeal the gun control measures that led to Giron’s ousting. The measure was batted down, but the senator has vowed to reintroduce it in the next session, assuming he retains his seat.
On the economy, Sen. Rivera has spoken passionately about the need to roll back rules and regulations — and to rethink a cripplingly complicated tax system — that make Colorado uninviting to outside businesses. Generating a friendly corporate climate at the state level, he said, will be key to revitalizing Pueblo’s stagnant economy.
In his one year seated, the senator organized and conducted town hall meetings with Black Hills Energy and championed the preservation of the Southwest Chief rail line. It’s safe to say Sen. Rivera quickly and effectively established himself as the constituents’ champion.

Do you remember this headline from last August?
New York Mayor Swoops In Again! “Michael Bloomberg donates $350,000 to fight Colorado recall efforts” by Lynn Bartels of the Denver Post.
He is now gloating that the anti-Second Amendment laws are on the books even at the expense of two sitting State Senators. But the funny part was that even though he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight the recalls, they didn’t actually matter because there probably aren’t any roads in those parts of Colorado (Pueblo and Colorado Springs) anyway.
These comments were ridiculous! We need your help to combat the lack of common sense that has infiltrated this great State.
Thank you for your support!
