Colorado NORML Officially Endorses Tony Pigford for Denver City Council - District 4
Denver, Colorado: The Colorado NORML organization officially endorses Tony Pigford for Denver City Council - District 4 in the April 4th, 2023 election. Colorado NORML’s mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to protect the responsible use of cannabis by adults, and to serve as an advocate for consumers to assure they have access to high quality marijuana that is safe, convenient, and affordable.
Tony is a leader helping start businesses, philanthropic organizations, and helped organize three successful ballot initiatives for Denver residents.
”Our organization and its board are proud to support and endorse Tony Pigford’s campaign for Denver City District 4. Tony see’s what prohibition has done to many who now suffer non-violent cannabis convictions and could benefit from his leadership role to create solutions.” said executive director of Colorado NORML Ashley Weber.
Tony’s great-grandfather founded The Colored American Loan and Realty Company in Denver in 1901. He saw the huge, complicated socio-economic oppression of black people in America at the time, and he stepped up and took the problem head on. Tony will do the same: Step up and take responsibility for Southeast Denver's future.
"I’m honored to receive the Colorado NORML endorsement once again. I look forward to this partnership to bring more equity to Denver’s cannabis industry and support their mission of protecting marijuana laws and marijuana consumers." – Tony Pigford, 2023
