    I've known Lew for 15 years. I've always looked to him for guidance and wisdom. Leading up to the election, he set my mind at ease by helping me to see the political issues from both sides in a way that made sense. One of his goals as Governor is to move Colorado forward by helping urban and rural communities to come together, and I've witnessed firsthand his amazing ability to do just that. It is my honor and privilege to endorse Lew Gaiter for Governor of the State of Colorado.   Read More

Lew is the kind of man to lead Colorado and I am truly proud to endorse him for Governor of the  state of Colorado. Christian Y. Leinbach Chairman - Berks County Commissioners Read More
