Legislative Blog with House District 21 Representative Lois Landgraf

Greetings Republicans:

As I enter my 6th year as a legislator representing the great people of House District 21 I find myself reflecting on my body of work and the impact it’s had on Colorado. When elected, I made a commitment to myself that I would at least try to run substantial legislation aimed at helping those who need it. My philosophy has been a “hand up, not a hand out”. I was surprised when I looked back and found that, as of the end of the 2017 session, I had run 48 bills and resolutions. 

My work has included raising awareness for intellectual and developmental disabilities and combatting human trafficking, while protecting the victims coerced into human trafficking and protecting the victims of rape where a child was conceived. I have worked on building systems that improve the lives of those with disabilities in Colorado, ensuring that they receive the support they need. I have also sought to improve mental healthcare in Colorado as well as advocate for the rights of those who have been detained for mental health emergencies. 

As the wife of an Army veteran, the issues that veterans face have become very close to me. I’ve dedicated much of my time to serving the members of the armed forces in Colorado. These efforts include increasing tax deductions on military benefits, improving how courts address cases involving veterans and setting up a pilot program to pair veterans who suffer from PTSD with service dogs that they trained. I have not forgotten those that died in their service and those that have passed away and I ensured that Colorado would not either. I sponsored resolutions to honor and memorialize those that served. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I always enjoy hearing from my constituents. 

Sincerely,
State Representative Lois Landgraf

We are ALL Dreamers

Greetings Republicans:

I was too excited to sleep last night. For years, we the people have been promised hope and change by a Government (and President) that on one hand said they loved America, and on the other, tore her to pieces. The actions of Obama’s administration did nothing to protect the liberty of Americans and allow them to cultivate their dreams. We have been ignored and neglected by the ruling political class, until now.

During President Trump’s delivery of the State of the Union, it was clear to see that Democrats no longer have the interests of the people at heart, rather they are completely lacking an understanding of what the American people desire. 

President Trump stated, “The State of our Union is strong because our people are strong.”  He is correct. The benefits of the new tax cuts (corporate and personal), the dismantling of the administrative State, and record-high consumer confidence has given the economy the boost it needed to launch upward and thrive. 

For the first time in a long time small businesses owners (like myself and many of you) are getting the relief they need to expand, produce, and compete. Finally, America’s backbone of the working class is strong again. 

Our President called for “unity for the people” and reminded both Democrats and Republicans that, “these are the people we were elected to serve.” President Trump is absolutely correct. Government officials work for us! During the November 2018 election we have a chance to remind all of those whom are refusing to allow Americans to thrive by working with the President and his administration, that we decide if they get to keep their job. 

In order to continue draining the swamp of Politicians whom have forgotten who they work for, we must work together to support Republican candidates across the state of Colorado. Please if you haven’t done so already, plan to attend your local Caucus on March 6th, run to become a Precinct Leader, Delegate or Alternate, and join me in participating in our County and State’s grassroots process of electing good people to represent us throughout the political process. 

I agree with the President’s message, there has NEVER been a better time to start living the American dream. And for every Citizen, no matter where you have been, no matter where you come from, this is your time. If we work hard, if we believe in each other, if we believe in the American dream, we can be anything and “together, we can achieve absolutely anything.” 

God Bless our President, and God Bless the American dream. 

Semper Fi,

Merry Christmas, check out what Santa brought!

Greetings Republicans,

Your leadership team has spent much time meeting with individuals and groups who have all had one unified “suggestion” to us: We needed a new website.
 
Our site was archaic, confusing, and not always reliable.
 
Of the items prioritized on our agenda was to develop a new site that was modern, mobile-friendly, user-friendly to save time, and cost-efficient to save us money. Modern design shows the direction we are headed as a party. User-friendly saves time in finding information quickly. And while new fundraising, newsletters, and events calendar should be robust tools for us to organize, they should cost less.

Well, we listened, and today Santa delivered.

Please join us in our excitement as we unveil the new gopelpaso.com.

 

In the coming year, we will continue to improve the site as part of our dedication to increasing organization, increasing communications, and of course, increasing donations.

Check out the calendar packed with events across the county, and then volunteer. 

If you like what you see, please consider becoming a member of the V.I.B. (Very Important Business), Patriot’s ClubFounder’s Club, and DONATE to grow the party. With your support, we will win more elections.

2018 is days away and we’re excited — to make Colorado red again!

As always, thank you for all you continue to do to promote and grow freedom in El Paso County and the state of Colorado.

God Bless,

Joshua Hosler

Data Request Policy

Greetings Republicans,

I hope this post finds you all ready for Christmas and the New Year.

We have been very busy down at headquarters preparing for caucus training, the upcoming Executive & Central Committee meetings, and Assembly.

Due to the high volume of information requests from candidates and staff, we are implementing a new policy, to ensure that information is dispersed in a timely manner without causing strain on volunteers and staff.  (more…)

Commission pure GOP

The Gazette | Matt Steiner

Democrats will likely have to wait at least until the next election to crack the Board of El Paso County Commissioners.

By 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Republicans appeared to have a chokehold on both contested commissioner races. Longinos Gonzalez in District 4 and District 3’s Stan VanderWerf both held early leads, although one Democrat made a significant push to threaten the conservative status quo that has dominated county leadership since the early 1970s.

Duran, Grantham leaders

ColoradoPolitics.com l By Joey Bunch

Democrats elected the state’s first Latina House speaker Thursday, choosing Rep. Crisanta Duran of Denver, as the parties selected their chamber leaders for the next two sessions.

House Republicans chose Rep. Patrick Neville of Castle Rock, one of the Capitol’s strongest conservatives, to lead their caucus. The move was a surprise, as Rep. Polly Lawrence from the Douglas County side of Littleton, was thought to be a frontrunner. She instead was not nominated at her request. (more…)
