Why We Support Abe
“I support Abe for Commissioner because he has the land use and planning experience needed to do the job plus he is a great leader with a passion for the people of this county.”
“Abe is a person of conviction who will not waiver or compromise once elected. For him, it would be about ideals and results and not just occupying an office.”
“Abe’s integrity and strong moral character have set the standard by which I measure others, including those I served alongside in Operation Iraqi Freedom as an infantryman in the 82nd Airborne.”
“Abe is a bright, able, and responsive listener with strong conservative values and the demonstrated ability to lead.”
“I know Abe strongly supports our military and law enforcement communities and he will look out for those that look out for us.”
Douglas County is amazing and so are you! I believe in our county and am grateful how each of you has contributed so vibrantly to its incredible success. So many have asked me to run, and as a result of your encouragement, I have been on a “listening tour” learning directly from you what your current thoughts and concerns are about our county. From those many conversations with you, I have developed the following priorities as County Commissioner.
Transportation InfrastructureWe must have transportation infrastructure within Douglas County before we have development that affects our communities. As County Commissioner, one of my top priorities will be addressing the infrastructure needs that most impact you.
Responsible GrowthI will make sure that we always have amazing communities that are beautifully built, where citizens are included in the process. Protecting the true character of all of our neighborhoods is such an important part of the job as County Commissioner, and I am firmly committed to that goal.
Fiscal AccountabilityThe hardworking people of Douglas County should get to keep the money that they have earned. I will fight against tax increases and eliminate wasteful spending within our government.
Clean Air, Abundant Water Supply for GenerationsConservatives conserve! Therefore, clean air and water are priorities for me. I will work with community and industry leaders to ensure Douglas County supports our hunters, fishers, hikers, bikers, runners, and all outdoor enthusiasts in our beautiful public lands and open spaces where the sky is blue and the air is fresh both now and for generations to come. We also must have a clean, abundant water supply for the health and well-being of our communities. As County Commissioner, I will ensure the water rights of existing Douglas County residents are maintained and the expanding water needs of future residents are dependable and proactively planned for.
Public SafetyPublic Safety is such an important issue for our schools and communities. I fully support our law enforcement, mental health support services, and the Second Amendment rights of free people to defend themselves against evil. I will work collaboratively with law enforcement and our school board to make sure we have proven safety solutions ready and in place to ensure the next tragedy doesn’t occur in Douglas County.
Human EqualityI believe in being a Commissioner of all people of every background. As the son of a Latino father and a German/Irish mother both from Colorado, I hail from a rich cultural heritage and have a unique perspective that I can offer to all people of this great county. As the father of both a girl and two boys, I endeavor to ensure Douglas County is a fair and equal place where both my sons and daughter are heard, treated equally, and given opportunities based on merit, talent, and fairness.
