Ballot issues and congressional candidate debates in line up

Friday Sept. 28th
Tune in for a debate featuring both sides of Amendment 64, which would legalize the possession of marijuana.

Friday Oct. 5th
Tune in for a debate about the measure in Denver that would “de-Bruce” or allow surplus revenue to be kept by the city.

Friday Oct. 12th
Tune in for a debate featuring the candidates running for Congress in District 7, incumbent Rep. Ed Perlmutter and challenger Joe Coors.

Friday Oct. 19th
