Elected officials spend thousands of dollars of taxpayers' money promoting themselves on official brochures and ads, and a Colorado Springs Republican wants them to knock-it-off.
Sen. Bill Cadman says the state will be forced to throw out thousands of brochures featuring photos and testimonials from Gov. Bill Ritter when he leaves office in 10 months.
His bill in the state legislature banning the practice by the governor, secretary of state, treasurer and attorney general will be heard Wednesday by the Senate State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee.
