Election endorsement letters from readers

U.S. Senate

Gardner has supported north Fort Collins

Ron Lautzenheiser

I’m endorsing Sen. Cory Gardner for reelection. I’m doing this for reasons that are not known by most Fort Collins citizens.

Since 2004, I’ve had the honor of working with my fellow North College businesses and residents to return our area to the standards of the rest of our city. This has entailed thousands of hours of meetings with our city leaders, elected officials, businesses and residents, to complete this challenging journey. We still have a distance to go.

My fellow businesses and residents have learned that rebuilding an area of the city is more than just “bricks and mortar.” We also are investing in the citizens who live here through our two charities — “Coats and Boots” and “Project Smile.”
