The following questions were asked only of 2020 primary candidates. Not all candidates responded.
Why are you running for office?
After seeing what the State Legislators did in the 2019 session and seeing the direction our state is headed, I felt called to do something more for my state. For 26 years I have stood for and influenced others for strong conservative values and principles. I believe I can now make a difference at the State Capital.
What Colorado issue is most important to you and how will you address it?
Life. I will do all that I can to protect the lives of our unborn children. Abortion is an abomination to God and is an assault on human life. We must do all we can to protect the children God has entrusted to our care.
How should the state deal with the budget crisis - be specific in terms of programs and dollars. What should be cut, what should be preserved?
We need to lower tax rate all across the board. Government is already too big and overreaching. I would need to look at the budget to see what specifically needs to be cut but generally the liberal based causes is a great place to start.
What’s the best way for the state to deal with the unemployment resulting from the coronavirus? Solutions for the future only.
First, allow all businesses to open immediately. Second, reduce business tax rate to free up business owners to be able to hire more employees. Third, make laws going forward that are more small business friendly and encouraging for people to start businesses.
Describe the most important distinctions between you and your primary opponent.
I am not a career politician and I have not been corrupted by the establishment. I am a citizen representative and will look out for the needs of my state over advancing my personal career. I will bring common sense, honesty and integrity to the State Capital.
