From the wildfires that raged across the state to the horrific theater shooting, Coloradans showed courage and resolve that inspired our people. Senator Cadman urged lawmakers to emulate those heroes and share the same sense of purpose as we move forward into the legislative session.
    Excerpts from Senator Cadman’s remarks included ---

    “Let’s agree to dedicate this session to all who have risen to meet the challenges of the unthinkable events of last year. Let our words and our actions honor the lives of those lost by matching the spirit of selflessness and sacrifice of Colorado’s heroes.
