About the message:

This mailer from Conservation Colorado commends Sen. Julie Gonalzes and Rep. Serena Gonzales-Gutierrez for "voting to protect our environment 100% of the time." That's based on the environmental nonprofit's 2019 legislative scorecard that ranked lawmakers on their votes on climate issues, public health, improved air quality and protecting the environment. It's among several mailers the group sent coinciding with the opening of the 2020 legislative session Jan. 8. Gonzales-Guiterrez is up for re-election later this year.
