I am pleased to report that the consumer data privacy bill I sponsored went into effect Sept. 1. Colorado now has the country’s strongest law to fight against identity theft. This last session, I also led the fight to bring an additional $35 million to our schools to enhance campus security and to keep our students safe. Districts across the state, including our Cherry Creek School District, are now in active discussions regarding how these funds will be utilized. I am proud to be leading on the issues that matter most to you and your family. It is a privilege and honor to do this work.
On a personal note, I wanted to share a few pictures from a great event this past Saturday. As a result of a resolution that I sponsored, Arapahoe Road from I-25 to Parker Road has been officially designated as the Sardarapat Armenian Memorial Highway. As most of you know, my wife, Susan, is Armenian, and I am proud of our family’s bond with Colorado’s Armenian community. The 1918 Armenian victory at Sardarapat is a universal symbol of freedom and inspiration to fight for one’s rights, even when facing the longest odds. What a great symbol this highway is for our community and state.
