Colorado Politics: Coloradans may never find out who tried to influence Gov. Jared Polis and what kinds of discussions the governor held in his decision to commute the 110-year sentence of a truck driver whose actions in 2019 led to a fiery 28-car pileup that killed four and injured several others.
Or at least not from the governor’s office.
The Polis administration told Colorado Politics it will not disclose information about who the governor met as he considered how to respond to public pressure seeking leniency for Rogel Aguilera-Mederos, the truck driver convicted of four counts of vehicular homicide and 23 other charges following the April 2019 crash on I-70 in Lakewood. More than five million people had signed a petition calling for Polis to grant clemency or commute the sentence.
