In appreciation and advocacy for the residents of El Paso County:
Thank you for the great experience at the Colorado 5th Congressional District (CD5) Republican Assembly on April 2, 2022. As a first-time Grassroots candidate running against incumbent Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn, I was very pleased to receive 23% of the Republican Delegate vote at the CD5 Assembly. Thank you to all Delegates for participating, whether or not you voted for me.
As the residents of El Paso County entered the Colorado 2022 Primary season, I became increasingly aware of the division and lack of integrity in the El Paso County GOP as an institution. During my run to gain ballot access for the 2022 Republican Primary, I constantly heard the political line of bravado about “winning” as being the prime objective, when in reality, the El Paso County GOP is neither prepared nor fit to win. In its mission, it has failed. Based on my observations, most of the candidates selected to advance to the 2022 Republican Primary in El Paso County are complacent with continuing to “whistle past the graveyard”, ignoring the damage caused by internal strife and division in the El Paso County GOP. Some candidates resort to denial, some resort to avoidance, others are simply indifferent. The constituents of El Paso County deserve better from the El Paso County GOP.
As a former Republican, and now a member of the American Constitution Party, it is clear to me that this 2022 election season is important because the Liberty granted to us through the U.S. Constitution is in peril and under attack from Marxist forces installed in the seats of power of this Great Republic. We can not afford to run this race as if we have a dead elephant on our back. We must run this race to win, as if winning is reflected in our actions through unity, a true devotion to the U.S. Constitution, and service to constituents of El Paso County.
1 Corinthians 9:25-27
"Everyone who competes in the games trains with strict discipline. They do it for a crown that is perishable, but we do it for a crown that is imperishable. Therefore I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight like I am beating the air. No, I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.…"
Therefore, let us run the race with excellence, without a dead elephant on our back, and mount up with wings as eagles.
"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint."
