Wednesday's Warrior: Marilyn Musgrave
The Editorial Staff of the Colorado Conservative Project are pleased to announce that this weeks Wednesday Warrior is Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave. Congresswoman Musgrave has been the defender of conservative values that others have tried to emulate since being elected into the U.S. House of Representatives in 2002. A Reagan Republican if there ever was one, Marilyn truly cares about her constituents and has been a staunch defender of Veterans, lower taxes and agriculture while in office. Others have taken note of Marilyn’s leadership and in the last month she has received the Taxpayer’s Friend Award from the National Taxpayers Union, retained her position as Policy Chair of the Western Caucus and even convinced Democrat John Salazar to join with her in pushing for permanent repeal of the Death Tax.
The Congresswoman has vastly broadened her repertoire of legislative leadership since coming into Congress and has recently taken up the fight to promote renewable energy research and hybrid vehicle technology. While these issues are not generally associated with Republicans, we applaud Congresswoman Musgrave for reaching across the aisle in support of issues that should matter to all Americans regardless of political persuasion.
Thank you Congresswoman Musgrave for all you have done for the people of the 4th District as well as how you have influenced other Colorado Conservative heroes to take up the good fight.
(Editors note: We have received numerous emails as to why we had not featured Congresswoman Musgrave as our Wednesday Warrior earlier on, and we can only say sorry that it took us this long to recognize a true conservative hero like Musgrave.)
