Legislative coverage is welcome

I was so glad to read that you will be covering the Capitol this legislative session (Jan. 6 issue). I and many of my colleagues are very interested in knowing about the PERA bill and the changes that will be happening to our retirement plan as well as all of higher education.

One of our main concerns regarding the demise of the Silver and Gold Recordwas that we weren't going to have anyone covering legislation that concerns us — state classified employees.

I am the chair of the legislative committee for the University of Colorado Denver's Staff Council. I also sit on the legislative committee for Statewide Liaison Council, a group represented by the majority of higher education institutions in the state. We look forward to any information you can obtain for us during this legislative session.

Why so few letters?

I'm wondering why there are so few letters (many weeks: none) to the editor in the Newsletter. Compared to the Silver and Gold Record, there are very few.

I'd be curious to hear from readers as to why they think there are fewer letters, though perhaps there's been a drop in readership, which would explain it (while raising other questions).
