I am a strong advocate for open and democratic primary and general elections. I want to make sure that Colorado has the most democratic election system in the country.

Statement on Working with Consensus

My consensus building began many years ago, when I lobbied on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. (1970s & 1980s) primarily for renewable energy legislation. In Colorado, I drafted Colorado's oil and gas regulations in 2009 and 2010. That took a lot of working with both major political party members.

In 2014 and 2020, I wrote two books on American politics where I created a new economy for Main Street America, a version of the Green New Deal, and a Neal Deal for America.
