Statement

I am a strong believer in our representative form of Democracy and the redistricting process must be fair and, importantly, be seen as fair. I believe my science background and commitment to cooperative consensus would make me a useful member of the commission. I am retired and can devote all the time required for research, study and meetings.

Statement on Working with Consensus

My personal view of fairness constitutes a major moral commitment I have and have had throughout my professional life. I can listen, I can hear, I can heed those with whom I am working to try to reach our common goal of a redistricting result we can all be proud of and support. Over my many decades of voting in Colorado, I have often voted a split ticket, evaluating individual candidates on their own merits, political party notwithstanding.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

I have a long career in science. I conducted research, wrote papers and did extensive data analysis with modern tools such as R, SAS, SPSS, etc. Logical analysis and reasoned conclusions lie at the heart of good scientific work. My academic curriculum vitae is attached.
