I'm proud to be one of the most bipartisan legislators in our state. I care deeply about finding solutions to the problems facing our community and I will work with anyone on either side of the aisle to accomplish that. Click here to learn more and help me fight back.
"Our Colorado way of life is important, and I will work hard to preserve it for future generations."
Kevin's wife of 24 years, Michelle, has taught in public schools, like many in his family. Education is an important issue. He will work to improve performance and promote parental involvement in schools.
Kevin believes in smart growth and will make better transportation and infra-structure a priority in order to serve our growing region.
Our free enterprise system is critical. He will work to promote small businesses so they can thrive and provide good jobs for Thornton, Brighton, Aurora, Bennett, and Watkins communities.
ON THE ISSUES
Kevin has and will work hard to find solutions for our increasingly clogged highways and by-ways. He's protected existing transportation revenue streams and allowed voters to expand them. Transportation infrastructure projects will help our commute and economic growth.
Kevin supports a balanced energy plan that will help lower energy prices and end our dependence on foreign oil. He believes we should expand domestic oil and natural gas exploration along with technologies such as wind and solar. This will create and grow American jobs and bring down energy costs for working families.
Kevin is committed to a pro-growth, pro-jobs strategy that keeps our state's economy on track. He believes in following TABOR and allowing the voters to decide tax and revenue issues. Kevin believes private property rights are important.

Kevin understands that we are a nation committed to equal opportunity, and there is no equal opportunity without equal access to an excellent education.
