Colorado House District 59: Our very own
Marilyn Harris, ACRCC Chair
“We need leadership that will put citizens of HD 59 first. ”
I want to return Colorado to the days when people and their livelihoods mattered more than a political agenda. District 59 is rich with an abundance natural resources providing unique lifestyles for those who live here and fantastic recreational experiences for residents and the vast number of visitors we host each year. I will support legislation based on common sense, limited government and strive to preserve the freedoms we all enjoy in the 59th district. It is important that the people have a strong voice to convey their best interests and help guide the Colorado House of Representatives to support our community and our needs.
My extensive political leadership experience including Chairman of the Archuleta County Republican Committee, President of State of Colorado for Colorado Federation of Republican Women for four years, Coordinator of the National Federation of Republican Women as well as the Board of Directors and Bylaws Committee of the National Federation of Republican Women provide a sound platform to work from for you.
I want to work with you and help our rural area of Colorado recover and return to economic growth, see that people have a choice in the type of health care they want to receive and endeavor to make that care affordable. Strengthen our education system, protect farmers and ranchers from unfair water rights legislation, make sure our natural resources are open to all to enjoy and deliver long range planning that will directly contribute to our district’s success.
A lot of my family members and friends call me a workaholic. Along with living an active political role I dedicate numerous hours each month to several community projects such as the local 4-H, projects that support our service men and women, local charities within our district, and volunteering to support those in need such as the women’s shelter.
Outside of my decades of political service, I also bring to the table my past business experiences as a small busines owner in the restaurant business for 7 years and business coordinator and budget management for a multimillion-dollar entertainment group for 14 years. As a Colorado resident I have loved our state and local communities for 27 years.
From Chromo to Durango, Kline to Gunnison and all the towns and rural areas in-between we are a diverse group of people who must unite to have a strong voice in our state government. Together we can and will be heard.
I ask for your vote for representative from District 59 to the Colorado State House of Representatives.
Thank you for your time and attention.
It is time to unite and be heard!
