GUEST COMMENTARY

I recently ran unsuccessfully as the independent candidate for state House District 59. I’ve been asked why I’ve taken so long to write about my campaign. For me, the campaign is ongoing, and until the complaints that were filed against me and Unite Colorado are resolved, I am still figuring it out. Once those complaints have run their course, I will share the results regardless of the findings.

Barbara McLachlan, who was re-elected to the seat, and I met earlier this month and spent a couple of hours talking about the campaign, and our ideas. I congratulated Barbara, telling her that as my representative in Denver I hope she is successful fighting for our district. I shared some of my hopes and fears, and we agreed to stay in touch. The reason for this column is not the campaign, but to discuss the partisan Christmas gift elected officials in Washington, D.C., have given to the American people.
