Agriculture is the economic backbone of the 3rd Congressional District, the state of Colorado, and the nation. Farmers and ranchers give rural America the character many of us see as the embodiment of the American Spirit. To preserve and protect our rural communities and our farms and ranches, we must work to breakdown the regulatory obstacles that are currently inhibiting their success, and I will fight tirelessly to protect private property rights.
In Congress I have fought to keep the federal government from preventing the next generation of farmers from gaining the hands-on experience necessary to have a career in agriculture. I have also worked to open up markets so that Colorado’s agriculture industry can have a larger market to sell their products.
