I have lived in House District 20 since moving to Colorado in 2000, and have supported Representative Amy Stephens. I also worked for Rep. Stephens as her Legislative Aide in Denver for the 2009 legislative session. I will always be grateful to Rep. Stephens for that opportunity. It enabled me to learn about our state level political and legislative processes and to discover ways to contribute to conservative causes in Colorado.
Through the magic of reapportionment I now reside in HD 19, along with Rep. Stephens and Representative Marsha Looper. As conservatives concerned about the direction of our state and country, we must elect the most conservative of the two.
According to CUT, the Colorado Union of Taxpayers, Rep. Marsha Looper has the higher CUT rating of the two. This means she has voted more often on the side of the taxpayers. You can see the CUT ratings and the votes that contributed to the ratings at http://www.coloradotaxpayer.org.
If I had needed a tiebreaker, it would be that Rep. Marsha Looper voted against SB 200, which establishes a health care exchange in advance of Obamacare. Republicans have disagreed on this law; I fall on the side of the legislators who voted no: It makes government bigger. Government at all levels needs to be smaller and less intrusive, not bigger and more intrusive. I appreciate Rep. Looper’s no vote.
