“Congratulations to El Comercio de Colorado for its multiple awards from the National Association of Hispanic Publications (NAHP)! We love working with your team and with all of our talented Hispanic journalists in Colorado”.

– Jared Polis,
Governor of Colorado

“I’d like to congratulate El Comercio de Colorado for its recent success, winning four awards from the Hispanic Newspaper Association. Local news is foundational to our democracy, including Spanish-language print, radio, and broadcast journalism that serves Colorado’s growing Hispanic community. In recent years, local news has taken one body blow after another, and if we don’t act, I worry we could be headed for an America without local news. I worry about a democracy without local reporters on the beat to hold officials accountable and engage citizens in the events shaping their communities. I introduced the Future of Local News Commission Act to help reinvigorate local journalism while preserving its vital freedom and independence.”

– Michael Bennet,
US Senator for Colorado

“Congratulations to El Comercio newspaper, and the publisher Jesus Sanchez, for being recognized with another José Martí award for outstanding journalism.”

– Mike Coffman,
Mayor of Aurora

“On behalf of the Consulate General of Mexico in Denver and my own, I acknowledge and congratulate El Comercio de Colorado for having received four awards during the 31st edition of the José Martí Awards, presented by the National Association of Hispanic Publications. The awards ceremony is a recognition of the importance of local journalism carried out by El Comercio de Colorado, because in this way we can learn about the issues that most affect our community and, based on this, implement actions and public policies that allow us to address their needs and improve their quality of life ”.

– Berenice Rendón Talavera,
Consul General of Mexico in Denver

Let’s go for more.”
