There is no better place to live, work, play, or raise a family than Ouray County.

We are in a critical period where we need strong, experienced leadership to navigate a pandemic that is increasing the demand for health, safety, and welfare services at the same time we are facing uncertainty about county revenues and a potential recession. We need to be agile, creative, and collaborative to leverage our resources and innovate new ways of communicating and delivering critical services safely. We need to support Ouray County's dedicated and professional staff providing high-quality and responsive county services. I'm excited to talk with you about my campaign and hear your vision for Ouray County's people, communities, land, and water. I want to earn your support.
One of the things I love about Ouray County is that each of our neighborhoods has its own character, community, traditions, and priorities. Part of being a public servant is to recognize and celebrate the uniqueness of different parts of the County and how Ouray County is made of of individuals, communities, ranches, and wildlands that require empathy and flexibility when crafting County policies and delivering County services. There is no One Size Fits All but by putting people ahead of partisan politics, and listening, we will identify common ground for sensible and informed decisions. Democracy does exist at the local level. Together we Make Ouray County Strong.
