WASHINGTON—Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Michael Sargeant released the following statement on the submission of signatures to recall Colorado Senator Angela Giron (D-Pueblo.)
“Senator Giron has dedicated her life to improving the lives of the youth of her community. For nearly three decades at the Boys and Girls Club, she worked to steer countless youth away from the dangers of drug addiction, and now she travels the country helping to build quality youth programs across the United States. Senator Giron brought her passion for helping our youth to Colorado’s Capitol, where she sponsored legislation that helped students who dropped out of high school complete their education to receive their high school diploma.
“Again, extremists are attacking Senator Giron because she successfully sponsored legislation that will increase voter participation in Colorado, and she supported legislation that would grant equal benefits to the state’s gay and lesbian couples as well as the new legislation that will reduce gun violence in her district and throughout Colorado."
