Peg Littleton on Homeland Security



Protect Colorado from base closures and other downsizing

I am the mother of a military officer and daughter of a WWII-era veteran. As such, I am fully dedicated to protecting and promoting the interests of our active military personnel and veterans.

As a county commissioner, I oversee a jurisdiction that hosts six major military bases. I have been an active supporter of military operations and have worked to protect Colorado from the federal government's base realignment closure process and other downsizing measures.

In the United States Senate, I will continue working to ensure the military's efforts to consolidate and concentrate operations benefits Colorado. I will actively support the expansion of cyber security and assist Colorado in becoming the cyber capitol of the world. I will fight for military funding adequate to ensure our country maintains a superior national defense. I will fight for more and better training and equipment for the men and women who protect our vital interests.

Unwavering support for veterans who fought for our freedom

In deference to the veterans and patriots who have fought for our freedom with some paying the ultimate price, I give them my unwavering support.

As commissioner in a jurisdiction that hosts six major military bases, I have developed connections with top military leaders who advise me on the increasingly complicated threats posed to our way of life. In the Senate, I will call on the brightest military and foreign policy experts to help make decisions in the interest of keeping Americans safe.

Oppose moving detainees from Guantanamo to Colorado

As a gubernatorial appointee to the Colorado Department of Public Safety's Homeland Security Advisory Council, I have helped develop policies and a strategic plan for the state to assist counties and municipalities in all hazard events.

As a senator, I will make public safety among my highest priorities. The men and women who serve our communities in law enforcement have my unwavering support.

I will not support efforts to move detainees from Gitmo to Colorado.
