Sanctity of Life Sunday 2017

It was gray and cold; the weather seemed appropriate to the event at hand. It was Sanctity of Life Sunday, January 15th, 2017, and we were remembering the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade ruling on that winter day forty-four years ago when that coldest of practices, abortion, became the law of the land.

PPCFL Survey 2016 Responses for Local Candidates, General Election Update

[Updated September 13, 2016]

In late January we sent our 2016 political survey to the local and state office candidates whom Pikes Peak area voters will be evaluating in the coming assembles and elections.

Yet again in May we sent out surveys to additional candidates who had entered political races after we conducted our earlier rounds of surveys. We compiled the responses and presented them in an earlier post so you could make informed decisions in the primary election.
