"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?"

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 Tom Strand
Colorado Springs City Councilman Wayne Williams

In addition, the following candidates reached out and asked to also be added:

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:

  2. What a devisive and partisan way to address the issue of police accountability. The death of unarmed black and brown community members should not have anything to do with politics. But Jeff Crank you know how to spread your message. El Paso county and Colorado Springs might bite but racism is not a difference of opinion its a matter of right and wrong.
