A legislative committee looking at the school finance act Wednesday announced they’ve picked the company that will help take the deep dive into how the state pays for public schools. Cross and Joftus, based in Maryland, will take on the heavy lifting over the next year to figure out the solutions to Colorado’s strange mix of finance and school funding policy. The company will handle data and analysis, research, and taking input from a variety of stakeholders. The General Assembly set aside $383,000 in 2017-18 and 2018-19 to pay for the consultant as well as other expenses.

Congressional candidate Darryl Glenn likes to tell a story about a woman he met at a farmer’s market earlier this summer. “She was an older black lady, independent,” he says. “I stopped by and introduced myself, and she was like, ‘You’re a — Republican?’” He scowled like he was sniffing a carton of milk that had turned. “‘I’ve never seen a Republican,’ she said. ‘Why should I even listen to you?’ And I was like, ‘Ma’am, I just want to have a conversation with you.’” Then he leans in, animated at the memory of their exchange.

Doug Lamborn, another Colorado Springs Republican.
