Today, Senator Kevin Grantham (R-Caņon City) issued the following statement regarding the murder of Colorado Department of Corrections Executive Director Tom Clements last night:

“In the all too brief time I knew Director Clements, I had the privilege of considering him a good friend. Not only was he an honorable and decent man, he was committed to preserving the safety of all Colorado citizens, especially those DOC employees who live and work in Fremont County. His contributions to our state will not be forgotten.”
