Statement

I believe that representative democracy is the most important component of ensuring that ALL the people of Colorado have a voice in how they are governed. Planning, implementing, monitoring and modifying (as needed) the physical areas that chose representatives is the foundation of a functional democracy.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I believe in the power of impartial information and facts to inform a person's ability to make good decisions. I am a person who is willing to listen, take all sides into account and look for a solution that meets the stated requirements of the issue being examined. I am clear that compromise may be required to reach a goal that can be accepted by hopefully all, but at least a majority, of stake holders.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

As a mathematician by training, logic rules! I am an excellent problem solver and have used that skill in working with a wide range of employees, customers, vendors, clients, young people, wealthy donors, people working to make a difference in hundreds of ways. I have been successful in my business and civic life and would love to have the opportunity to participate in the work to establish congressional districts that provide every citizen of Colorado the opportunity to have their voice heard.
