Denver Post: Suthers Needs To Get Priorities Straight
The Denver Post wrote on the issue last Thursday, and now the Denver Post editorial board has opined on Attorney General John Suthers’s request for more resources in consumer protection while his office tried to influence controversial issues in other states.From the Op-Ed:
We don’t think that an office as busy as Suthers’ needs to be involved in grandstanding on such issues from other states.
Last week, state Rep. Jack Pommer, D-Boulder, questioned why Suthers was taking on partisan legal battles at the same time he is asking for increased office funding. His request is nothing to sneeze at. All told, Suthers is seeking an addition of roughly 10 full-time employees, said spokeswoman Kristin Holtzman. In January, he’ll meet with the legislature’s Joint Budget Committee, which has six members, including Pommer, to explain his budget request.
