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.
