Candidate Q&A: Laurel Imer, for HD24


Profession: Clinic manager

Residence: Golden

Party: Republican


What makes you the best choice for this office?

I believe it is time to have an elected official in the Colorado State Legislature that is one of the people of the community, not beholden to corporations, unions, or lobbyists. I am funded solely by the people whose interest I will represent. I believe in Freedom. I refuse to put people into political boxes, that are designed to divide us as Americans. We are all part of the Human race. I will not participate in cancel culture.

If elected, what would your top issue be?

School choice and parental rights for all Colorado families is my top priority. I believe school choice is the civil rights issue of our time. Parents have the right to choose what is best for their children , period.

If elected, what would you want to accomplish in order for you to consider the term a success?

I would like to earn the respect of others in the House and those in the state, as a proven and successful leader. I would like to honor the wishes of those who elect me, by addressing the issues and concerns they have brought forth during my time on the campaign trail. I would like to change the stigma of "being a typical politician". I want to embrace the "Promises Made, Promises Kept" model of President Trump at the state level.

Your view on efforts to change TABOR?

I fully support TABOR. I believe it is important for the voters to have a voice in revenue increases. I support restraining the growth of government.

The Red Flag law went into effect this year. Has it been a good law, and would you change anything?

I do not support the Red Flag Law. I support the right of Colorado's citizens to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of Constitution of the United States of America. I believe it should be repealed. Mental health is a real issue. Using a back door gun grab as an attempt to fix mental health is a disservice to the people of Colorado. We can do better and should focus on real ideas to help address the mental health crisis in Colorado.
