Letter to the Editor: Rep. Dylan Roberts should be our elected official in the Colorado Senate

Patricia McLaughlin

We need to turn the temperature down on politics, plain and simple. That’s why I will be supporting Rep. Dylan Roberts for state Senate this year. Roberts takes responsible and thoughtful stances on issues that most impact us, and — more importantly — he does so without playing to an extreme wing of his party. Too often today, politicians seem focused on who can say the most outrageous thing or who can get on TV the most. Not Dylan. During his time in the legislature, he’s shown maturity and poise, and his methodical, low-key approach not only benefits the communities he represents, it helps folks see past the rhetoric and get back to a place of responsible governing over attention-seeking bombast. 

Rep. Roberts’ approach extends past governing – his campaign has been committed to positivity and focused on the issues like water and housing — not on the culture war topic du jour. Running a positive campaign in 2022 is a rarity: political consultants will tell you the only way to win is to attack your opponent in deeply personal terms and make everything into a scandal. Rep. Roberts bucks the trend and is the kind of thoughtful, sober-minded leader we need in Denver.
