November is inching closer, and already we are seeing the drastic effects of being in the minority. The Democrat-controlled State House of Representatives has been pushing through their liberal agenda. They have fought, with varying success, to impose government control on the Western Slope and on issues that affect our way of life. Luckily, our Republican-controlled State Senate can block their liberal push, but this is not enough. A government stalemate does not pass free-market healthcare reform, it does not pass tax cuts, and it does not fix our infrastructure. The reality is we won't be able to limit government without a majority in the State House of Representatives and the Governor's seat. Luckily, we have an opportunity to take back the State House in November, and it starts with my seat, House District 59.
In 2014, I had the honor of representing House District 59 by the slimmest of margins, a mere 170 votes. With the Presidential election taking place this year, you can bet your bottom dollar that we will be facing another extremely challenging election cycle. This election could result in a drastic change for the worse if we do not act now. My opponent will surely be backed by large donors who want to see our water leave the state, our gun rights restricted, and our liberties restrained.
Unfortunately, we cannot count on a Democrat Representative to fight to preserve the rights for the people of House District 59. We may lose the great strides we have taken in the right direction on so many important issues. There is simply too much at stake: water rights, transportation, and protecting the 2nd Amendment are all issues that we will lose if we do not keep a strong, conservative voice fighting for them.
I have stood for these and many other issues as they are my core values. As your neighbor, I am grateful for the privilege of representing you now and in the future. Would you stand with me? Please act now to help me fight to protect our Western Slope rights bydonating $25, $50, $75 or even $100 today!
