Long time resident, raised in Iowa, former middle school teacher, married.
Mental Health. I believe that mental health is not being addressed enough in this state. We must be able to help people through a critical episode of their life with support for the person and family, reduce the harm of drugs and alcohol that are often a part of mental health issues, and streamline insurance procedures. I believe that we need to encourage more mental health providers into the state, provide more access to help in rural areas of Colorado, and better coordinate all the various support services that are available.
Colorado will need to tighten the belt for a while. To encourage businesses to be created and expanded, the state government should not be placing more taxes and fees on businesses. This is a good time to reduce the size of state government, reduce unnecessary and redundant regulations, and eliminate programs that would be better controlled by towns, cities, and counties.

1. Roll back the unconstitutional mandates of the out-of-control governor. He has destroyed the state economy through dictates based on no law, terrible economics, and fake science.
2. Reform CDOT. They do not understand the state's infrastructure needs have to be addressed at the local level and not be Denver-centric or engage in infrastructure mistakes and bad priorities that neglect the rural areas and actual needs of the people.
3. Decentralization and untangling of state and local governments so they can run better and more responsibly.
Repeal the law that the governor has abused to illegally close down the economy and get it all opened up again, and require all such decisions to be made locally by city councils and county commissioners instead of statewide, using actual science and best practices as recommendations instead of junk science mandates. South Dakota and Taiwan are good models. Let the virus die out naturally and get back to living, not fearing!
