Heidi Ganahl Lays out Her Plan to ACTUALLY “Fix the Damn Roads”

Greenwood Village, CO — Colorado has the 46th worst roads in the country. Three years ago, Jared Polis made a $5.4 billion investment in a plan he said: “would finally fix the damn roads.” In reality, that money has been diverted away from infrastructure and funded Polis’ pet energy projects. In fact, only one out of every three dollars created by SB21-260 goes to roads and bridges.

On Thursday, September 15th, the Colorado Transportation Commission will vote on an updated version of Jared Polis’ failed 10-year transportation plan. While these Polis appointed bureaucrats double down on a failed policy that has made our roads worse, Republican Gubernatorial Nominee Heidi Ganahl will lay out her $10 billion investment in roads that will actually get Coloradans to and from work safely and efficiently.

Heidi’s plan targets the roads in our state that are in the poorest condition. It actually relieves congestion by expanding roads and, in turn, gets people out of traffic and to work and home faster, therefore benefiting our environment and every part of Colorado. While Polis’ updated plan cuts paving dollars for rural Colorado in half, Heidi’s plan will fix roads all across our state.

Heidi’s plan is supported by key members of the transportation community from all four corners of our state, including Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, who has yet to see the money to fix his city’s roads promised by Jared Polis three years ago.

Some of the key endorsers of this plan will be on hand to voice their support, including CDOT’s first female Chief Engineer, Pam Hutton.

JOE O’DEA INVESTS IN HIS WORKERS AND THE COMMUNITY

JOE O’DEA INVESTS IN HIS WORKERS AND THE COMMUNITY

Denver, CO — In case you missed it, former U.S. Senator Hank Brown and former state Representative Cole Wist co-authored an opinion column in The Colorado Sun dispelling the outrageous and dishonest attacks from allies of Senator Michael Bennet on Concrete Express Inc. (CEI), Joe O’Dea’s construction company.

On CEI:

“O’Dea’s construction company, Concrete Express, Inc., has one of the best safety records and finest professional reputations in the construction industry.”

“At Concrete Express, first-generation Americans have worked their way up from entry-level laborers to becoming co-owners alongside Joe.”

“Benefits at O’Dea’s company are generous — the company helps pay college tuition for the children of employees through a scholarship program. Chronically ill workers are given months of paid leave and benefits.”

“Joe’s company gets hired by Republican counties and Democratic cities to build roads and reservoirs, to reroute rivers around old dams, and to build environmentally friendly bridges, trails and footpaths that expand access to Colorado’s wondrous outdoors”

On Giving Back:

“O’Dea and Concrete Express have donated millions of dollars in labor, construction supplies, and engineering know-how to Father Woody’s Haven of Hope, a homeless shelter in Denver now named Haven of Hope.”

“When O’Dea says we need to clean up homelessness, crime and addiction on the streets of Denver, even as we provide humane alternatives for those down on their luck, you can know Joe O’Dea walks the walk.”

On Joe’s Honesty:

“O’Dea spent months in the Republican Primary telling pro-life audiences and conservative talk show hosts he disagreed with them on abortion, that he would vote to codify Roe vs. Wade, but that he hoped the GOP would back him because he would attack inflation, cut the debt and support the police and military.”

“O’Dea told Donald Trump supporters that the former president was wrong to deny the 2020 election’s outcome.”

“Joe O’Dea has said he hopes Trump doesn’t run (he doesn’t think Biden should either) and he will campaign for another contender — like Sen. Tim Scott — if he does.”

“He tells immigrant communities he supports citizenship for ‘Dreamers’ —  people protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — but that we need to bolster border security to keep-out fentanyl, crime, and cartels.”
