Who We Are

Welcome to the Colorado Democratic Party!


Democrats in Colorado are about empowering people and protecting the planet.

We understand that the quality of life for people can be directly related to the ability to find a good job, the ability to access healthcare, afford housing and get a good education, without a lifetime of debt.

We believe that after a lifetime of hard work, people deserve to retire with dignity and security.

We believe that small, local businesses drive Colorado’s economy.

We do not believe that corporations are people and are willing to make sure that the wealthy big corporations have to live by the same rules as you and I do.

I have lived in the Western Slope of Colorado for 22 years. I absolutely love living here.  I was a mechanic for over 40 years and am now retired and live in Fruita.  I started working for the Democratic Party in 2014 when I saw the low voter turnout in a Mid Term election. I decided then that I wanted to do something to help get more folks out to vote.  Helping to elect good local leaders who also care about the Western Slope is important to me. I am working to do my part, to give back to the community I love and be a positive voice.


Come join us!
