Common Sense, Family-Centered Solutions
Chris is running for State House 38 to bring a common sense approach to the solutions needed for Colorado families.
Last year, his four year old daughter Lydia said after the election, “why were there bullies running.” At that moment, Chris knew that calmer heads needed to prevail. That reason, common sense, and the basic tenets of acting as an adult must come back to our political discourse.
Chris and his wife Tara are raising two young girls. They know that everyday decisions are affected by the high cost of childcare, medical expenses, rent, and home ownership. Like many families, they worry about the future of their girls' education, health, and opportunity in this wonderful state. Chris believes the major issues we face in affordable living, education, sustainable environment, economy, transportation, and senior care are not standalone issues. Whether we are new to this beautiful state or have been here for generations, we know that these issues affect all of us either directly or indirectly. Chris will be dedicated to focusing on these issues.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “I have an irrepressible desire to live till I can be assured that the world is a little better for my having lived in it.” Chris has lived his life trying to follow Lincoln’s words. He did his best as a high school Social Studies teacher, educating his students to look at viewpoints and issues from many sides. Chris joined the United States Air Force and went to officer school so he could protect and serve his country before a back injury forced him out. He moved on and became a Certified Financial Planner™ to always work in his client’s best interests so they could properly take care of themselves and their families. Chris founded the Rocky Mountain Chapter of 100 Men Who Care to create more awareness for local charities and the good they do.
Chris has been working his whole professional career to do what President Lincoln believed. Chris hopes becoming your elected representative in HD 38 will make our little part of this world better.
