What experience (personal, professional, other) would you bring to your role as Governor that will benefit our state?
I have a strong sense of empathy for people. I grew up from a poor family and have witnessed many of the problems that plague our society. I have always deeply wanted to find a way to help people. The role of Governor is not to be taken lightly by any one person.
What is your vision for being our state’s Governor?
My vision as Governor is that of charity and hard work. I am tired of Political Cronies running everything. It is time for the voice of the people to be heard. I intend to spend every waking moment tuned in to Colorados needs. I forsee a Colorado that is more connected to its Government. I want to heal the bond between the general population and the Government.
Many Americans are concerned about the Federal government usurping power from the States. Do you believe that the current balance of power between Federal and State governments represents or deviates from our Founding Fathers’ intent? As Governor, how would you seek to protect and exercise Colorado’s Constitutionally guaranteed states’ rights?
Our founding fathers foresaw a prosperous and safe nation for everyone. I believe their tenants have paved the way for growth and change. I do feel that the state rights should be represented sufficiently. I feel that we have deviated from our forefathers path and that there is an imbalance of federal power over states. The true path to freedom is self-sustainability in all sectors of our state.
Under what circumstances, if any, would you exercise emergency powers/issue mandates as Governor, rather than submit the issue to the legislative process? Do you believe that such emergency powers should be restricted, if so, how?
I am a firm believer in due process. The only instance I would exercise emergency powers would be in the case of time sensitive emergencies. I would prefer to use the legislative process in as many cases as possible.
As Governor, how would you seek to protect the most vulnerable in our state, including the lives of the unborn, the trafficked, and the elderly?
I am willing to be a warrior for anyone who needs a voice! I only want to protect and serve our state in any way that I can!
What will you do as Colorado Governor to protect our citizens’ 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 want to repair all of the programs that do not work. It is my first act as Governor. I intend to audit the State Government for programs that waste large amounts of Tax Dollars. I also plan to empower programs that are working. I believe it is time for our State to take better care of the people.
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”?
Gun ownership is a civil right. I do agree with Red Flag laws. Such laws serve as a way to protect the general population from unnecessary harm. Magazine capacity bans are laws that are intended to protect the general population from the select few seeking a few extra rounds in their clip. I cannot see a purpose to own such a thing unless you used it for recreation. In which case, I see nothing wrong with approaching middleground and allowing permits to those willing to submit the correct information and paperwork.
As Governor, what will be your priorities for the state budget and why? Constitutionally, do you agree or disagree with running a deficit yearly?
It is my first act as Governor is audit itself. There is an enormous amount of waste and very to little information as to where and what. I intend to provide a more effective way for citizens to know where their tax dollars are being spent. *Updating all facets of government into the modern, digital age. As far as a deficit goes: To me, if a State is accruing deficit then they are being either ran poorly or their state is suffering tragic problems elsewhere. In the case of being ran poorly, this is largely due to corruption and “cronie-ism” occurring in the highest levels.
Competing Business Sectors
As Governor, how would you seek to support Colorado’s oil and gas, agriculture, and livestock industries, while also supporting the newer green energy and alternative food sources industries with which these traditional businesses sectors seemingly compete?
Colorado needs to be on the path to self-sustainability and It would be my goal to create such a future. We need a marketplace that supports everyone but also protects our most important resource: our planet and its people. There is no magic wand that anyone could wave to solve all problems. It is going to take entire system revamps in order to make real change. We are going to have to overhaul the entire way we do things. The true test will fall on the corporate elite who sit in their board meetings and decide how they respond to the will of the people. Fairtrade should benefit all, not the few.

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.
