Background Husband, father and grandfather. BS University of Minnesota. Vietnam War Veteran (Combat Medic). Senior Management for two manufacturing companies and owner of two small businesses. My wife was a high school teacher and opened two large childcare centers in CO, supporting welfare children.
Affordable Healthcare. i would write a bill to both allow Walk-In-Clinic treatment for the uninsured (current Federal Law requires all hospitals to treat in the ER at 20 times the cost) and allow anyone to join PERA+.
No one should tell any woman what she can and can't do with her own body. Any law that restricts this should be changed.
Pass Amendment 73 so we can get rid of Gallagher. It just a start, but without funding, education is strangled and keeping good, experienced teachers is difficult.
Our aquifers are near the bottom. The only water we have is in the mountains. This is a huge infrastructure project, but we need to at least start the engineering studies now.
As stated in question 1.
Affordable housing designs exist, but builders need to be incentivized to build them. As a start, I would offer interest free loans to buy land and build the houses. The land most probably would be outside of the metro areas, so public transportation needs to be planned and provided.
