Democrat Phil Weiser declared his candidacy for Colorado’s next Attorney General in May 2017. Over the course of his people-powered campaign, Weiser has engaged with Coloradans to present an agenda focused on equal rights for all — to ensure every Coloradan is treated fairly regardless of who they are or where they come from, and for protecting Colorado’s land, air and water.
On the campaign trail, Weiser details his vision for an attorney general’s office that leads with creative solutions in a range of areas affecting all Coloradans. Weiser, a beloved teacher and leader in Colorado’s entrepreneurial community, has served in the judicial and executive branches of the federal government, including as law clerk to Supreme Court Justices Byron White and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He also worked as a senior official at the U.S. Justice Department in two administrations, and as a White House adviser to President Barack Obama.
Explains Weiser, “My career has been about bringing people together to solve complex problems in new ways. I look forward to using these experiences and skills to transform the AG’s office to help Coloradans in every part of the state.”
The attorney general serves as the top lawyer for the people of Colorado on issues ranging from civil rights and consumer protection, to protecting our land, air and water. Weiser emphasizes that as attorney general, he will represent all of Colorado. He further details plans to work with leaders across the state to bring high-speed broadband internet service to all communities, fight for affordable health insurance, lead on water management, address the opioid epidemic, fight for fair access to economic opportunities, and advocate for high-quality, accessible education.
“In every county I have visited,” Weiser explained, “I have learned about the challenges facing Coloradans in different communities. I am committed to representing all Coloradans as the next attorney general. That is why I am focused on bringing high-speed broadband internet service to all communities, fighting for affordable healthcare, leading on sound water management, addressing the opioid epidemic, and promoting high-quality, accessible education and economic opportunities in all parts of the state.”
