We are pleased to announce that Cynthia Coffman, Colorado Chief Deputy Attorney General and 2014 Candidate for Attorney General, will be our guest speaker for our general meeting on November 19th!
Cynthia is a dedicated public servant, attorney and leader. Her legal career began 22 years ago in the Georgia Attorney General’s Office. Cynthia’s first job in Denver was working for the Colorado General Assembly’s Office of Legislative Council. She staffed the Senate Judiciary Committee and assisted with a study of the state’s adult parole system. Cynthia then served as the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Director of Legal & Regulatory Affairs and later as its Deputy Executive Director. She gained extensive experience with environmental issues related to air and water quality, hazardous waste regulation, and environmental health. On the public health side of the house, Cynthia worked on statewide bioterrorism and emergency planning efforts, disease control and prevention, maternal and child health programs, and hospital and health facility regulation.
In 2004, Cynthia moved to the State Capitol, where she had the honor of serving Colorado Governor Bill Owens as his Chief Counsel. Then, in March of 2005, newly- appointed Attorney General John Suthers selected Cynthia as his Chief Deputy. She has proudly filled this role for the past 8 ½ years, acting as chief of staff and chief operating officer for the largest law firm in the State of Colorado.
As always, we’ll be meeting at Cap City Tavern. Bring a friend and come prepared to ask questions!

On the evening of October 16th, a room full of young Republicans was anxiously filling in squares on their Bingo boards at Jackson’s. B-7. I-17. N-42. G-53. O-67. BINGO!
DMYR Members marking their BINGO Boards
While this event was a fun evening for socializing with other Conservatives in the Denver Metro area, it was also a fundraiser for Imagine! The mission of Imagine! is to create and offer innovative supports to people of all ages with cognitive, developmental, physical, and health related needs so they may live fulfilling lives of independence and quality in their homes and communities. One of their many services is to provide housing for developmentally disabled adults throughout Boulder and Broomfield Counties.
Imagine! Foundation Executive Director Susan LaHoda
During the recent flooding, Imagine! sustained damages exceeding $140,000. With only $30,000 of insurance coverage, they are left with a serious shortfall in their budget. Through grants, crowd-funding, and donations they are working hard to meet the needs of their consumers and residential staff members.
Our Bingo event raised over $2,300 to support Imagine! and their flood recovery efforts. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the Colorado Hispanic Republicans, the Rocky Mountain Energy Forum, Ashleigh Miller Photography, and former Congressman Tom Tancredo. As DMYR continues to host fundraisers, we hope you will join us to support local organizations that need a helping hand!
