2022 Colorado Primary
STATE REPRESENTATIVE HD15 CANDIDATE
What experience (personal, professional, other) would you bring to your role as Representative that will benefit our state?
I was raised in a Southern Baptist church. My grandmother would make sure that we attended vacation Bible school in the summer and attended church as much as possible during the weekday. I found the teachings of Jesus rather interesting. I loved how he helped people in need and stood up for the poor because I know what it is like to struggle…(continue reading next answer)
What is your vision for being a Colorado State Representative?
I saw people in the church filled with this energy that I never felt, they called it the “Holy Spirit.” I asked my pastor, “Why don’t I feel it also?” He told me God speaks to people in different ways and that I should try listening a little harder. I didn’t understand at the time and I stopped attending church in my late teens and figured it wasn’t for me. One thing about me is that I have always liked helping people and I have always enjoyed serving. I was in my early twenties when I got involved with nonprofits where I would go out and help people get off the streets…(continue reading next answer)
Do you believe that elections in Colorado should be conducted differently? Should voters in Colorado be required to verify their identity and residential status in the respective counties in which they vote? Are you in favor of a single-day, in-person voting system consisting of all-paper ballots? Why or why not?
I saw the joy on their faces when they saw someone cared about them, I saw the struggles they went through by going to them in their homes under bridges. It touched me deep in my soul when I saw them go from the streets to a stable home. That was when I felt what those people were feeling in my church all those years ago…(continue reading)
What is your position on the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR)?
I knew this was a sign and my calling, to serve people. I can’t say I have ever felt the presence of God in a church personally, but I have felt it when helping those who can never pay me back, I felt it when I saw someone broken down on the road in the middle of a snow storm and fixed their car. I felt it when someone reached out for help with their life-saving medicine and I was financially able to help them…(continue reading)
As a State Representative, what will you do to improve the education of our K – 12 students? What is your position on parental authority in education, including school choice?
No, I don’t go to church or tell people about my faith because I show it by loving people, fighting against injustices, and helping those in need. My faith does not require me to express hate or discriminate against anyone. Unfortunately, there are elected officials, and some that want to be elected, that want to do just this (continue reading.)
Do you believe that the government has the legal power and authority to dictate what a person does with his or her body? If so, how?
I believe in the separation of church and state and I respect that not everyone believes in what I believe. I will never force my religious beliefs on someone else. I will never discriminate against anyone for any reason. I respect everyone’s religion unless it requires you to discriminate or hate. My only purpose if elected is to serve, not spew hate and division…(continue reading)
Protecting the Most Vulnerable
As a Representative, how would you seek to protect the most vulnerable in our county, including the lives of the unborn, the trafficked, and the elderly?
I know that I am a Democrat running in what used to be a Republican stronghold and that makes some people uncomfortable. Please don’t judge me because of any preconceived notions that you may have about me. Judge me based on my ideas, actions, and heart, not what you hear. Some of my priorities are housing affordability, education, economic development and workers rights. (continue reading)
What will you do as Colorado State Representative to protect our 1st Amendment rights to: the free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, peaceably assembly, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances, all of which are becoming more difficult to exercise in America (and around the world)?
I am the only candidate who does not want to take away your rights in House District 15. I am the only candidate that has a plan to fix housing costs, protect workers’ rights, ensure our children are safe at school, and ensure that everyday people have a voice that will be heard…(continue reading)
Do you believe that gun ownership is a civil right, and what are your positions in regards to red flag laws, magazine capacity bans, legislation that regulates gun storage, and permitless “Constitutional carry”?
I am not a rich politician. I am a mechanic, I am the working class. I watched my father, who was a carpenter, go through the hardest time of his life during the early 2000s. I saw the government bailing out everyone, but the working class, which angered me. It is not the CEOs that make the country work, it is you and me the electricians, mechanics, construction workers, cashiers, nurses, waitresses, etc. You don’t build a house from the top down, you build it from the ground up. The same goes for our economy… (continue reading)
How do you believe that tax revenue in Colorado should be best utilized to improve our infrastructure?
We don’t need someone in office that has no plans and does not care about preserving our rights. We have real issues here in Colorado and we need someone with real ideas. We cannot have someone running for office that attacks the LGBTQ2+ community or someone that wants to take away voting rights or individual rights. Whether I am a representative or not, I will continue to stand up to people who want to bully others that don’t conform to their beliefs. I am a representative for the people, by the people and I am convinced that on November 8th, we will vote out hate. (finished)

Voting is a simple, yet significant way to do something about public policy in our country. As people of faith, we will be held accountable for our actions, as well as our lack of action. (Luke 12:48)
By diligently learning, applying, and trusting God’s truths in every area of our lives, we can begin to develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the unrelenting tide of our culture’s non-biblical ideas.
Vote your values
The issues of the day change. Political parties and platforms change. God’s Word never changes. The vote of every Christian should be based on the principles of Scripture and not persuasive personalities.
Electing righteous leaders
Bad governance and our loss of freedom is the direct result of the church’s failure to disciple. When the citizenry do not seek to be obedient to God’s Law, they vote in wicked and corrupt candidates, who then trample underfoot the God-given liberties of the people.
