Investment in smart, clean energy infrastructure is long overdue. Clinging to archaic technology hurts Colorado economically and environmentally. Embracing new innovations will secure jobs and energy growth.
Due to population growth and a dryer environment, we have a major water procurement shortage on the front range. We need to develop and invest in innovative systems that will produce clean water for our crops and families. Incentivizing corporate reinvestment in our infrastructure will secure our future growth.
We should be the beneficiaries of our tax investment in Colorado's infrastructure. Maintenance and expansion on our roads and bridges has not kept up with our growth. Our economy depends on reliable infrastructure, and I intend to deliver.
As we transition our water procurement and energy production to innovative, sustainable technologies, we create safe, high-paying jobs across the state. Infrastructure initiatives that require maintenace in the contract will carry our investment's value into the future and secure reliable jobs for our neighbors.
As a wounded combat veteran, I already receive quality, affordable healthcare. I don't believe you should have to get injured, fighting for our nation just to receive affordable healthcare.

America has fallen behind on healthcare, but it is time to lead.
