Re: “Constituent-hosted Town Hall: "With or Without You 2"

I was at the last event and the volunteer organizers did a great job. Neither Senator Gardner nor Representative Lamborn showed up, sent a staffer in their place, or even had a comment for us after the fact. Let's let them know that we expect to be heard. A huge show of force will send a strong message, whether they show or not.

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

Thanks Nat Stein for covering this. One clarification: regarding " ...many of whom had participated in a similar action at Gardners office the month prior. In that instance, they stayed until 7:30 p.m., got tired and went home. No police." We didn't go home because we were tired. Andy Merritt, Gardner's state director, met with us and gave us his business card. We felt like we had made some progress towards getting some straight answers and accountability, so we went home with Andy's card and his promise to follow up with us regarding Gardner holding a town hall. We soon discovered that the phone number on Andy's card was not his. The office claimed that this was a mistake at the printer. There was no follow up, and no way to follow up, because emails went unanswered and phone calls went to a voicemail that belonged to someone other than the person identified on the business card, and were not returned.

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

The unfortunate reality that most of these commenters seem to be missing is that Nazis and white supremacists are in our town, they are increasingly emboldened, and they are armed. Our elected officials are doing nothing. Do we wait until someone drives a car into a crowd to acknowledge reality, or do we peacefully allow them to take over our town? These are our options, folks, like it or not. This is where we are.

Re: “Sen. Cory Gardner is nowhere to be found during July 4 recess

Concernedcitizen, we call his office every day, and because they have stopped answering the phones, we go in person about once a week. If he has a town hall scheduled on the Western slope, please tell us where and when, because his office won't. Many constituents in the Springs and Denver would certainly take a road trip.

Re: “Sen. Cory Gardner is nowhere to be found during July 4 recess

Haha, Bill. I actually brought a blank check to the office, wanting to know what it costs to meet with him.

Re: “Trump to skip Air Force Academy graduation

Not speaking at the AFA but speaking at an Evangelical University? Well, if that isn't the most Un-American thing I've ever heard of... What a douchebag and an embarrassment.

Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

If you want to listen to your Congressman without interruption, you have countless opportunities for that. Read his newsletters, follow his social media, attend his ridiculous tele-town halls, or call or write his office to get his canned statements, just like that room full of liberals has been doing. It's about time he start listening to US. We've heard what the Congressman has to say, over and over and over. We're fed up. Perhaps you should do your homework before attending the next town hall, like the liberals did, and you'd know what he has to say.

Re: “Health care concerns push constituents to hold their own town halls

Thank you for this article. Hundreds of constituents have been trying to get through to Lamborn's office, and he not only ignores us, his staff is often combative and horribly rude. There is a large group of Indivisible folks who would love to follow up with some of our personal stories about our dealings with his office.

Also significant, is that I have called his office every day to see if he has any comments for the over 250 of his constituents that put aside an entire evening to ask questions, many of whom prepared speeches, and not to mention the lovely volunteers who worked hard to put the event together. He has no comment. How incredibly insulting to his constituents. Please keep holding him accountable.
