SUCCESS STORY: FRANK POHS
In November, I had the honor of presenting three medals – the National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal and United Nations Service Medal for Korea - to local Korean War Veteran, Francis (“Frank”) Pohs. Frank contacted my office in August requesting assistance in obtaining his military awards and decorations for serving as First Sergeant during the Korean War. We worked with the Office of National Personnel Records to verify Frank’s service and obtain the medals he earned but never received.


Rep. Perlmutter helped present the medals to Frank on November 27.

LOOKING AHEAD TO 2018

When President Trump took office, I was hopeful we could find areas of agreement such as tax reform or an infrastructure package. Bipartisan agreements on these issues that would make critical investments in infrastructure, housing, seniors and education would have helped Colorado - and at a time when we are feeling pretty significant growing pains as a state. Republicans have been in control of both the legislative and executive branch since January. I believe they have missed several important opportunities to move the economy forward and support hardworking families. I did not support the Republican tax bill. It will hurt hardworking people in the middle in order to give tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy, and unfortunately we’ve not even begun to discuss an infrastructure package.

But one thing hasn’t changed this year – we still live in the best place on Earth. Colorado has a bright future. And I will continue working to make sure hardworking families in our district and across Colorado are able to afford to buy a home, send their kids to school, save for retirement and enjoy the beauty that Colorado has to offer. I hope you and your loved ones enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season and Happy New Year!
