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?
As a pastor and leader for over 30 years, I have worked in the darkness and evil that is humanity and have seen amazing things happen when people are presented with truth, grace and purpose. I have been in the fight against immorality like abortion and the LGBTQ+ agenda all my adult life. I will always stand for morality and truth. I have experienced countless stories of truth breaking barriers and changing entire lives and groups of people.
What is your vision for being a Colorado State Representative?
Bringing back our Judeo-Christian values and moral rule of law. My job will be to develop legislation that will fight for unborn children and the rights of all people everywhere. I want to bring integrity and character to the State legislature. I desire freedom for adults and children. We need to make laws to hinder the ever-increasing control the state has over the people. I want children to be free of the sexual attack on them in public schools. I will make laws that will protect our children from the LGBTQ+, transgender and CRT agendas. I want to stand for truth and to be light in a dark state legislature.
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?
Colorado has been the epicenter of election corruption for a long time. Dominion voting machines need to be eliminated whatever the cost and time involved. I believe in showing IDs to vote. I would favor a single-day, in-person voting system with paper ballots but I would also support a mechanized vote- counting system that is completely secure. Most importantly we need to have a system that is not connected to outside entities that can hack and change the outcome of elections. We need much more oversite and integrity in the overall voting system.
What is your position on the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR)?
TABOR is necessary to keep the taxes in check. Citizens should decide tax increases, not the government or special interests. However, TABOR is not a reason why election corruption cannot be dealt with.
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?
The children belong to the parents NOT the state nor the school district. Parents need to be allowed to have more input in the local school districts and the curriculum they are using. All transgender, LGBTQ+ and CRT curriculum needs to be removed from schools immediately. I will present legislation to remove these destructive agendas and prevent anything like them in the future. Parents should be allowed to send their children to any school they desire or to homeschool their children. Taxpayer dollars need to follow the child, not the system. The school the parents choose for their children should receive their tax dollars.
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?
The government does not have the authority to tell someone to take a vaccine or any other drug they do not want to take. It is my body and it does not belong to the government. As a State Representative I will introduce legislation that will prohibit this gross unconstitutional overreach. This argument is used in favor of abortion. The problem with that argument is the mother and the child inside the womb of that mother are two different people. The mother has a right over her own body but that child is not her body, it is a different body of a different person.
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 will do everything I can to present legislation that protect the unborn from the moment of conception. I was president of the board of a group that rescues girls from human trafficking and have fought that fight for many years. I will present legislation that will protect children from human trafficking and strongly go after those that participate in trafficking of children and adults. Everyone is created by God and in His image. Everyone has the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, from conception to the grave. I will fight to protect the right of the elderly to also enjoy Life. We must respect Life. I stand for Life.
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)?
As a pastor I have fought many battles over the years against violations of freedom of religion and free speech. We kept our church open during the lockdowns. We never closed. I have had sermons removed from Youtube during the last few years. As a State Representative, I will fight with every tool I have to protect freedom of speech, assembly and religion. Without this basic constitutional freedom our country is not truly free.
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”?
The 2nd Amendment should stand as the only explanation for gun ownership. Citizens of the entire USA have the constitutional right to own a firearm. They should not have to explain why they want to own that firearm. All of the magazine capacity bans and regulations are just manipulative ways to attack the 2nd amendment. It is no one’s business if someone has a gun and what they do with it unless they harm someone. I will protect personal freedom in all areas of life, including the constitutional right to own a firearm.
How do you believe that tax revenue in Colorado should be best utilized to improve our infrastructure?
My first stance on taxes is no new taxes and also I will try to eliminate as many taxes as possible. For initiatives that need revenue there and many places where that revenue could come from, i.e. Planned Parenthood. I would like to see more revenue for police officers in the form of raises and also additional training. Most officers I talk to feel undertrained which hinders the officer’s confidence and ability to make quick decisions that could save lives. The raises may not include the bureaucrats at the top of the police structure but should focus on helping police officers that may have families.
JOIN THE COALITION
JOIN OUR E-LIST
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.
