Letter: Kellner plays fear card

Posted

Eighteenth Judicial District Attorney John Kellner, Republican candidate for Colorado attorney general, mimics his party’s tactic of fearmongering, comparing Denver to the dystopian world of “Mad Max,” hoping that it will draw people to the polls in November. Yes, crime and fentanyl are issues that should not be ignored and the legislature has taken steps to address it and it is job number one for a district attorney. So I’m sure he will get on it.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kellner has not said one word about the Supreme Court’s latest decisions, specifically that strip women’s reproductive rights and that further endanger our planet.

Thus far, he has not affirmed that he will defend Colorado’s Reproductive Health Equity Act which was signed into law this year. Defending our state’s laws is job number one for an Attorney General, as well as protecting our air, land and water. What are Mr. Kellner’s plans to counteract the limitations on the EPA’s authority to mandate carbon emissions thus exacerbating global warming? We know all too well what havoc climate change has wrought in Colorado.

The Supreme Court’s approval ratings have taken a nosedive since its new configuration and it is these recent decisions that will draw voters to the polls.

Candidates would be wise to take note.
