"When they allow a talk show host to play them like a two-dollar banjo, they demonstrate what kind of backbone they'll bring to the job later on, if we elect them. After they get elected will they continue to allow Jeff Crank to put a nickel in them and wind them up every Saturday morning?"

Barry Noreen, former columnist, Colorado Springs Gazette

"There's a lot of talent there" - Shannon Fowler

"For a guy named Crank he's pretty affable" - Russ Latino

Elected Officials Who Are Willing to Support Local Law Enforcement

The Jeff Crank Show asked all of the local elected officials if they support law enforcement enough to put their name to the following statement:

“While the heinous act perpetrated on George Floyd must be condemned, we stand proudly with the men and women who serve us every day through the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, the Colorado Springs Police Department and other law enforcement agencies in the Pikes Peak region.  The bravery exhibited by local law enforcement keeps our community safe, maintains law and order and upholds the rule of law.  While improving policing should always be our goal, we recognize that the vast majority of law enforcement are honest, decent, dedicated men and women who enforce the law and protect our community with honor, bravery and valor.”

Here are the elected officials who were willing to sign their name to this statement:

Congressman Doug Lamborn
CU Regent Chance Hill
State Senator Bob Gardner
State Senator Dennis Hisey
State Senator Paul Lundeen
State Representative Terri Carver
State Representative Tim Geitner
State Representative Lois Landgraf
State Representative Larry Liston
State Representative Shane Sandridge
State Representative Dave Williams
District Attorney Dan May
El Paso County Commissioner Cami Bremer
El Paso County Commissioner Longinos Gonzalez
El Paso County Commissioner Stan Vanderwerf
El Paso County Commissioner Mark Waller
El Paso County Commissioner Holly Williams

El Paso County Assessor Steve Schleiker
Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers
Colorado Springs City Councilwoman Jill Gaebler
Colorado Springs City Councilman Don Knight
Colorado Springs City Councilman Andy Pico
Colorado Springs City Councilman Tom Strand
Colorado Springs City Councilman Wayne Williams

In addition, the following candidates reached out and asked to also be added:
House District 17 candidate Rob Blancken
District Attorney candidate Michael Allen
El Paso County Commissioner candidate Carrie Geitner

Sadly, several elected officials have chosen not to sign onto this statement of support for law enforcement.  The following elected officials have refused to respond to our email request.  Please email or call them and ask them why they have chosen not to respond to a statement of support for local law enforcement.  You might also post a link to this webpage on your Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts to help put grassroots pressure on them:

I need your help. Life Network is doing amazing work in our community with mothers and fathers who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. They are a pro-life pregnancy center that partners with these parents to introduce them to their baby, educate them on their options, and support them in every way from pregnancy to the time their child is two years old. They understand that once a mom or dad sees their baby in an ultrasound, that mother and father will make the right choice - which is always life. As a former board member of Life Network, I believe whole-heatedly in their mission. When you support Life Network, you are supporting mothers who need the resources to say "yes" to life for their unborn child and provide that child with a strong foundation of a loving and caring home. Please join me today and sign up to do a virtual walk with The Jeff Crank Show team - which you are a part of - or give a financial donation to sponsor our team and save lives. We talk about life on the show a bunch - but this is our opportunity to put our money where our mouth is. Lisa and I are giving financially and I ask you to contribute today and then walk in your neighborhood on June 6th and walk in support of God's great gift of life.
