Post endorses John Suthers for 2nd term as Colorado Attorney General
The Denver Post endorsed Republican John Suthers for Attorney General in 2006 and today endorsed him for a second term. Impact graphs:
Suthers has been a tireless public servant who has managed a successful first term with a moderate temperament that balances the demands of a partisan office. Not only has Suthers relied on an ideologically diverse staff, he's championed the careers of professionals like new Supreme Court Justice Monica Marquez, despite their political differences. We admire his open-mindedness.
Suthers also has impressed us with his levelheaded approach on a number of controversial issues — and none more than the recent medical marijuana dispensaries controversy.
Though he has never lost sight of his focus on law enforcement, Suthers presented a workable system that limited caregivers to five patients and imposed tighter controls on physicians who recommend medical marijuana for patients. And all the while he was careful to defer to the Constitution and the will of the people.
Suthers also has successfully resolved three of the state's biggest environmental cases and worked with lawmakers on consumer protection laws.
