Lamm was a progressive who wanted to close the borders

Lamm was a part of a political apogee for Colorado. I knocked on doors for him, Gary Hart, Tim Wirth and Pat Schroeder.

He fought for and got passed the first abortion rights law in America,

He warned about the dangers of immigrants speaking Spanish and wanted closed borders. He spent a lot of time telling everyone how black and brown cultures were broken. He thought “multiculturalism” was a threat to America, (CUKev would have loved this part of him.)

After Denver won the Winter Olympics bid he led the successful effort to abandon the games. (Over the years I have come to conclude no city should ever bid for the Olympics if any material money has to be spent on new facilities - LA was great - Rio made money for contractors and hotels but was a disaster for the people).

He was a fiscal conservative - who believed business often acted contrary to the public good and tried to legislate accordingly.
