Richard Skorman scored a major victory today, earning the endorsements of both the Colorado Springs Police Department and the Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters Association.
With public safety always a hot botton issue in the city budget process, the endorsements are a good sign for Skorman. And it doesn't hurt that both groups also contributed to Skorman's campaign.
