Agriculture

Colorado Agriculture is the lifeblood of the eastern plains and protecting our farmers/rancher’s property rights & water interests is a top priority. I fully support the principles outlined by Colorado Ag Water Alliance, & look forward to working with the many outstanding Ag Associations across the State.                   

If elected, I will vehemently oppose the Gray Wolf ballot Initiative (wolf reintroduction), as it would have a devastating impact on livestock producers, as well as wildlife conservation statewide.

Farmers and ranchers depend on reliable and efficient transportation networks for transport of their goods. Too often these transportation concerns are not given the same level of focus of those specific to the high country, though I believe transport of our food should be held as a higher priority than the transport of recreational skiers.
