Organization and Advocacy Experience

I have been a member of the USAFA Association of Graduates since the 1960s; involved in every reunion since 1982. Serving as Sec’y/Treasurer of the HOA has me involved with 5 other owners on the Board and allows me to discuss problems, participate in votes, collect dues, pay bills, etc.


I have been disgusted with the way Congressional districts have been drawn up by political hacks all over the country and I want Colorado to be a leader in fair and equitable districts.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I’m an honest person. I am willing to compromise. Throw the ideas out there, and work to pick out the best ones for a group decision. I can provide letters of recommendation.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

As an airline pilot, I was confronted with problems every day including weather, maintenance, problem passengers, federal rules and regulations. I found it was always better to discuss relevant items with the whole crew; that way a variety of solutions came forward. Ultimately though, my decision was taken because I had the sole responsibility. I was the one that had to answer if something went awry.
