Re-elect Mark Udall

Mark Udall is the clear choice for the 2nd Congressional District. The Eldorado Springs resident, who is seeking his fifth term in Congress, has delivered for his constituents in central Colorado, focusing on issues important to the West.

Udall is running against Republican Rich Mancuso and Libertarian Norm Olsen.

Udall has fought for increasing the country’s use of alternative fuels such as ethanol, biomass, and wind and solar energy, supporting bipartisan legislation to expand renewable energy production to meet 25 percent of the nation’s energy needs by 2025. He spoke out against cutting funding for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory earlier this year.

According to his Web site, Udall successfully helped pass legislation through the House in September to create a national warning system to “provide early warnings, forecasts, and information about drought conditions so that state and local communities can better address the impacts of drought.”

Udall said that if re-elected in November, he will work to foster environmentally friendly transportation along the Front Range and change existing laws to help forestry officials chop down trees infested with bark beetles. He also vowed to push for better border security and a new plan for victory in Iraq.

Udall will continue to work for Boulder, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Eagle, Gilpin, Grand, Summit, Weld and Adams counties.
