What makes you the best choice for this office?
I am invested in the long-term success of House District 29 because my wife and I are raising our family here. As the only candidate with children who will be going to school in our district, I am personally committed to the best education system for them, and for all in our community. And as a small business owner, I know how to stick to stringent budgets to facilitate growth and produce higher revenues.
What can the Legislature do to ease the strain of rising housing prices on Colorado residents?
Demand-side economics is driving supply short, and prices higher. The Legislature must make sure they are limiting new building regulations that cater to special interests, or are reducing the burdensome amount of building regulations on single and multi-family housing units that drive up construction costs. We need a local government that works hand in hand with developers, whose work contributes to our quality of life and economy, and not hinder them.
What can be done to ensure the state’s transportation system will be able to accommodate continued population growth?
The Legislature must fulfill its Constitutional duty of funding transportation, and putting dollars into our roads and bridges where they are most needed. Public-private partnerships can collaborate to facilitate the innovation and financing needed to build a truly sustainable transport infrastructure.
What two issues demand more attention in the upcoming Legislative session than they received in the previous one, and why?
Our economy and quality of life depend on infrastructure and it must be at the forefront of this legislative session. It is imperative that our roads and bridges are fixed now, not another 10 years from now. Secondly, we need to continue to work on finding long-term funding solutions to PERA. We need to ensure that the benefits that were promised to our state employees over the past decades are attainable in the future.
If elected, what must you accomplish in order for you to consider your term a success?
I will measure my success by two things. One, by how well I represented my constituents and fought for fair policies for all Coloradans. Two, by the fiscal responsibility of all of my votes. I want my constituents to look over the period that I represented them and see that I continuously fought to protect their hard earned tax dollars.
