About Us

It is an honor to serve the citizens of Elbert County - What a difference a few years can make!

“I first ran for this office because I felt positive change was needed- County leadership was in disarray, budget and finances were not receiving adequate attention, and citizens were not receiving the quality of service they deserved.

During this term in office, we have secured our county’s financial future, setting aside over $5 million in stability and contingency funds, increased transparency and communication with all citizens, expanded citizen services, and have dug deeply into quantifying our county’s future needs so we can plan wisely.

“I am running again because although I know I have helped move our county in a positive direction, there is more work to be done and continuity is important.''

Elbert County is an extraordinary place to live. Our unique blending of western rural character and proximity to growing metropolitan areas provides our citizens with opportunities that simply can't be found elsewhere in Colorado.

Why Am I Running Again? In order to continue to...

- Provide Government that Appropriately Serves the Needs of our Citizens
- Ensure Public Safety while Protecting Private Freedoms
- Support Responsible Economic Growth
- Protect the Resources & Culture that Makes Our County Unique

These four items continue to be critical to good governance and will remain my focus as your County Commissioner for District 1.
