Rep. Tom Sullivan (D), who represents Arapahoe County, says he plans to start door knocking in his district this weekend, asking people to decline to sign a recall petition against him.

Sullivan’s original plan had been to talk with constituents about about his legislative accomplishments as well as priorities for next year’s session.

“Now this is going to be a different conversation we’re going to have to have with them because of this recall,” Sullivan said.
