Retired USPS employee, former Aurora Local officer and current member Tom Sullivan has announced he is seeking the Colorado State House of Representatives District 37 seat. In a statement to KCNC’s Shaun Boyd, Sullivan said “You can raise money for somebody. You can make empowered speeches at places, but when it comes down to it, you don’t really have the ability to make the change unless you’re the one up there making the vote. That’s what I have to do”.
In a prepared statement Sullivan said “I will be challenging incumbent GOP Representative Cole Wist, a member with multiple “A” ratings from the NRA and who voted to allow 100-round magazines such as those used in the Aurora Theater shooting. I will prioritize affordable housing, gun-violence prevention, transportation funding, ensuring a quality educational system and working for veterans issues.”
According to the statement from Sullivan, “HD 37 encompasses Centennial, Foxfield, Inverness, and parts of Aurora and Englewood.” To find the exact area of District 37 go to: House District Map. For other Colorado voter information, including registration & acceptable forms of identification, got to the Colorado Secretary of State’s website.
