I am grateful for the support of term-limited Republican Senator Larry Crowder and for the opportunity to run for the seat he will vacate.  I am a native Coloradoan who is passionate about the values and way of life of our rural communities.  The people of rural Colorado inspire me to do more for my community and state.  Keeping rural Colorado prosperous, relevant and resilient is my focus and I am committed to everyone in the Arkansas Valley, the Wet Mountain Valley, the Southern Front Range and the San Luis Valley.

I have lived in this Community for 51 years, became an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) in 1999.  In 2003, I began serving as the Kiowa County Ambulance Director.  

As the Ambulance Director, I have written several grants addressing the need of acquiring updated Ambulances and equipment for us to take care of our Community.

The United States has hurled its first airstrikes in nearly a decade against Iran-backed militia forces in Iraq and Syria. Cloaked under the umbrella of a 'maximum pressure' campaign, whereby draconian U.S economic sanctions compel Iran to more worthwhile enterprises at the table of negotiations, it now seems evident, that, this 'political betrothal' is now steering the US into a new proxy war in the Middle East.

Dear Editor,

Not so many years ago, a small group of community members decided to pursue a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Grant for the Eads Swimming Pool. When the community found out about our plans, the response was overwhelming! Letters of support from businesses and individuals poured in. Pledges of matching in-kind donations and promises of help even at the busiest times of year were made. People who were part of building the pool originally shared their stories, photos, reasons why the swimming pool was built and their memories behind it.
