Background

Professional Background

I've had considerable experience in organizing various projects during my 42 years working for businesses in Colorado, which often involved representing and advocating for the teams I've led within the larger business.

Past Political Activity

My political activities include talking about politics with friends and family, voting, and donating to various campaigns and political organizations. Those campaigns and organizations include: Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, John Hickenlooper, Amy McGrath, Jaime Harrison, Sara Gideon, Woman's March, The Lincoln Project, Moveon.org, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Tedra Cobb, Tom Steyer, Deval Patrick, Indivisible, Fair Fight, Brian Fitzpatrick, Susan Brook, Fred Upton, Will Hurd, Ditch Fund, and Jay Inslee

List of Political and Civic Organizations belonged to

I've been a member of the Board of Directors for the West Meadows Metropolitan District for several years, and its president for the past couple of years.

Statement

For our democracy to remain strong, we have to ensure that everyone's vote—regardless of political party—counts the same. Among other things, achieving this means getting rid of gerrymandering. The new Commissions for Congress and the Colorado Legislature can achieve this, but only if the members of the commission are willing to draw district boundaries that are free from political considerations. I want to help accomplish that.

Statement on Working with Consensus

For the Commission to achieve consensus, the commissioners need to set aside political allegiances and vote for district boundaries that make elections fair for everyone, not just for Republicans or Democrats. As a commissioner I would do my best to achieve that.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

As a software developer, I have over 40 years of time doing very detailed, analytical work. I believe I can apply that work to the detailed, analytical work of drawing fair district boundaries.
