Mark’s Story: Political

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

I’m running as a Democrat because I believe in the Party that spearheaded progressive policies in the 20th century.  From FDR to JFK and LBJ, Democrats made our nation safer and stronger.   But, this isn’t just about Democrats and Republicans.  Today, a consensus exists to move America forward again, but it exists outside once-familiar party lines.

Unaffiliated voters now comprise Colorado’s largest voting bloc. I promise to represent the interests of people over Party. I’ll listen to these voices and every community in Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District will be stronger for it.   I hope to represent all Coloradans by activating the grassroots and kickstarting Lincoln’s vision of America: “…a government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Some say the grand experiment of America – a nation where individuals are free to express their highest purpose while rooted in community that governs for this common good – is dying or even dead.  I say history proves that when people unite to serve our greater good, we transcend the pettiness of the ordinary and ascend to the dignity and wisdom of our Founding Fathers.
