Q: How should the General Assembly function to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19?

A: The coronavirus pandemic and artificial economic closure have devastated many families in our state. As the health crisis subsides, our goal is to bring Coloradans back to work and restart the economy by helping SMEs recover. You can get the job done by promoting appropriate federal bailouts, while eliminating tedious state taxes and over-regulation that impedes business activities. In addition, the governor needs to begin to relax restrictions so that all citizens can make a living again.

Q: If you are elected, please tell us one of the laws you would like to introduce and why.

A: We need a law that prevents Governor Jared Polis from selling employees in his administration to businesses and special interest groups. This is the definition of “pay to play” and corruption needs to be stopped now. Regular Coloradans cannot compete with the wealthy interests of buying political influence. Keeping this shameful practice off the ground is a top priority.

Q: In recent years, funding schools has become a hot topic. What do you think you need to do to fund our school?

A: For students and teachers, we need to pass a law that guarantees more money to flow into the classroom. Taxpayers’ money is often lost to school administrations that develop their own bureaucracy rather than being used to educate their children. In addition, Colorado schools do not have a fair distribution of federal dollars. You can fight to make sure Colorado is receiving the largest amount of federal funding given to our education system.

Q: How should the General Assembly function to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19?

A: Covid 19 measures should have been advisory rather than mandatory

Q: If you are elected, please tell us one of the laws you would like to introduce and why.

A: Serious police reform. Eliminate implicit immunity, do not end knock raids, and hold police accountable.

Q: In recent years, funding schools has become a hot topic. What do you think you need to do to fund our school?

A: I would like to abolish public schools, but the public does not want this, so I would like to insist on the choice of education through the education voucher system. Parents know what is best for their children.
