Statement

It will be beneficial to the citizens of Colorado to have a fair and impartial redistricting of the state after the 2020 census without gerrymandering or leaning toward special interest groups so that the state residents may be adequately and correctly represented.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I'm aghast at the current inability or unwillingness of the national and state political parties, and their respective members, to reason together, to reach across the aisle(s) and to fail to consider each other's opinions and positions. In my life and law practice I have found it possible to reach agreement, or at least consensus, in a variety of life and legal disputes.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

I have had to apply analysis and logic in the practice of law in determining the problem to be confronted and determining solutions.
