You have questions? Of course you do.

As we look toward 2019 and the start of a new legislative session, the on-the-ground campaign for Denver mayor, and a new blue era in Colorado’s elected leadership, what questions should our team tackle first?

Or how, exactly, Gov.-elect Jared Polis will accelerate the transition to renewable energy or pay for full-day kindergarten? What do you want to know about the evolving political climate in Colorado and where it will lead? What questions do you have about Denver’s mayoral race?

Here's how it works

You know the drill. You ask. Our intrepid staff starts looking for answers. Then we will launch a voting round to help us winnow the list. Even if you don’t have a question, you can still vote for which ones you want to see answered most. Thank you!
