To Representative Doug Lamborn and Senators Udall and Bennet Re: NPR

Representative Doug Lamborn, Senator Mark Udall, and Senator Michael Bennet, You will not receive my vote in any re-election for supporting a bill or amendment to rid NPR of federal funding.

Dyson Authorized Service Centers in Colorado Springs

There are only 3 Dyson Authorized Service Centers in Colorado Springs:
Nelson Appliances (Fillmore)

When in doubt, call 1-866-MY-DYSON

"There aren't really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie. And I think it gives a distorted image that yes, not everybody hires nannies and caretakers and nurses.
