To the Citizens of Colorado’s House District 18, As the largest law enforcement organization in both Colorado and the United States, representing several thousand sworn law enforcement officers in this state, the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police is proud to support and endorse Pete Lee for re-election to Colorado House District 18. Pete has served for two years on the House Judiciary Committee. He understands the issues surrounding public safety and the problems faced daily by line officers. He is a proven leader with integrity, character, and courage. He understands the importance of promoting effective public safety solutions in Colorado.
Pete Lee has shown himself to be a truly dedicated public official who has demonstrated to us that he is a friend of law enforcement and an asset to the community he serves. He values the men and women who work every day to keep Colorado’s communities safe. We have worked closely with Pete on several bills important to public safety. His successful legislation concerning restorative justice was strongly supported by the Fraternal Order of Police. It gives victims the right to meet face-to-face with the offender under highly-regulated circumstances, and allows for sentences that focus on compensating and repairing harm to victims.
Pete Lee not only understands the issues surrounding public safety, but he is willing to roll up his sleeves and work hard to solve the serious problems facing our state now and in the future. Pete is a strong advocate for Colorado’s small businesses with a passion for his community and a desire for dedicated public service. Pete is steadfast in his commitment to reducing unemployment and getting people back to work.
Pete is not governed by partisan politics. Far from being a professional politician, Pete is a citizen politician who will take the time to listen to the community and to those most affected by the problems we all face. He does not put a political agenda ahead of the interests of the citizens of his district. Pete Lee brings real-world experience to public office. He is a man of strong principles and courage whose interest in being elected to this position of public trust is to serve his constituency. He understands the real issues facing the citizens of House District 18 and Colorado. We have no doubt he will continue to work hard to resolve the serious issues facing our great state.
Pete Lee’s history of commitment to public service and fairness has earned him this valuable endorsement. He has proven to being creative and open minded by drawing upon the best ideas from various sources and philosophical arenas working toward practical and effective resolutions of the challenges Colorado’s communities face. As such, we have no doubt that Pete Lee is the best candidate for this office. We strongly endorse and support the re-election of Pete Lee for Colorado House District 18.
