''I believe in upholding our civil liberties, supporting private property rights, free enterprise, tourism and small business... We also need to protect open space for agriculture as well as conserving our public lands for recreational uses from motorized to hiking. I believe that government should maintain itself and make its own decision even at the local level, without interference from higher government. I am for water rights that have been so hard fought to maintain on the Western Slope. I'm for the improvement of our childrens' education system and also for accountability to the taxpayers.
?As Your State Senator, I will be Your voice and take your concerns and issues to the floor of the State Capital and fight for them. I will listen to all concerns and not just the ones that I am told are politically viable''
