I grew up in Boulder, Colorado. My grandfather came here in the fall of 1939 and now four generations of my family can call it home. I started working for my parent’s children’s cotton clothing business at 12, I was home schooled, ran a sports statistics company and bagged groceries at Albertson’s while going to Front Range Community College.
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2003 with a BA in Economics.
Since that time, I have struggled getting into a well-paying career. While I won’t go into all the details, I will say that negative government policies have played a significant role in my situation. For one thing, the economy is over regulated. These unnecessary regulations stifle the economy and make the number of good paying jobs much less than the number of people qualified to work in them. If elected, I will work tirelessly to eliminate as many job killing regulations as possible.
