Dave Williams: US Congress-House Congressional District 5

OPINION about Dave Williams:

Earned 74% of the delegate vote at assembly.

OPINION about Dave Williams:

Dave has served in the Colorado State House for 6 years.  He has a strong record of standing up for conservative values.  To find out more, go to https://libertyscorecardco.us/#/legislator/22229https://libertyscorecardco.us/#/legislator/22229

He also was the prime sponsor of several bills on issues that I care about including the following:

- Personhood of the Unborn -- Abolish Abortion in Colorado

- Election Officials required to conduct recount if a registered elector requests it

- Prohibit Discriminatory Practices in Schools (anti-CRT)

While these bills were typically killed in committee, I appreciate the fact that he has stood up for these issues.

He is strongly opposed to SB22-153 (the bill that would consolidate all oversight of elections in Colorado under the Secretary of State's office) as well as HB22-1279 (the horrific abortion bill that passed both House & Senate), and has been an out-spoken opponent of both.

He indicated that he would vote NO on any omnibus bills that included things in it that he is opposed to such as abortion funding or denying rights of American citizens.

When asked what his top priorities would be if elected, he replied with the following:"That's a great question.  It's hard to rank these, but I'll take a stab at it:

For process:All bills should be limited to one subject.  All bills should be given at least three days for the public to review before a vote.

For issues:Election integrity (plus get rid of Dominion)Pro-life (tied for number one)End & prevent mandates. Religious Freedom. Protect 2nd Amendment. Stop illegal immigration. Lower taxes & spending.

On another note, I'll be fighting hard to stop bills more so than trying to pass more.  Government is out-of-control on all levels and needs to be cut down to size."

These are priorities I whole-heartedly support.  In addition, I am encouraged by his strong, conservative stand on issues in the State House.  I believe he will do the same if elected to Congress.  He has earned my vote at the CD 5 Assembly.

OPINION about Dave Williams:

Current scorecard: https://libertyscorecardco.us/#/legislator/22229

2022 Score: 99%, Lifetime score: 90%

OPINION about Dave Williams:

Says he will host CD5 townhalls when elected.

OPINION about Dave Williams:

Not afraid to communicate with his constituents. Gives out cell phone, email and even his address. He trusts We the People. That feels different. I want different. No more status quo.

Doug Lamborn: US Congress-House Congressional District 5

OPINION about Doug Lamborn:

Here is the omnibus bill Lamborn voted for that included funding for Planned Parenthood.

Taken from https://thenewamerican.com/freedom-index/legislator/l000564/votes/congress-115/

H R 1625

Omnibus Appropriations We Oppose

This bill (H.R. 1625) would provide $1.3 trillion in discretionary appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018 for federal government operations and services. This represents an overall increase in discretionary spending of 12 percent over the 2017 level. The big winner was the Department of Defense, with an increase of 10 percent over last year’s appropriations. Democrat negotiators on this bill successfully fought off many Republican riders, such as a rider that would have permitted the Trump administration to withdraw the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. Pro-life Republicans were saddened to learn that the omnibus bill continues the more than $500 million in taxpayer dollars Planned Parenthood receives each year.

The House passed the omnibus spending bill on March 22, 2018 by a vote of 256 to 167 (Roll Call 127). We have assigned pluses to the nays because with this omnibus bill, members of Congress are failing to address their fiscally and constitutionally irresponsible budgeting and appropriating process that is currently yielding annual federal deficits measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars, as well as minimizing their accountability to the voters by combining all discretionary federal spending for fiscal 2018 into one gigantic “take it or leave it” bill.

OPINION about Doug Lamborn:

Doug Lamborn’s voting record: lifetime score of 74% of votes support the Constitution. https://thenewamerican.com/freedom-index/legislator/l000564/

OPINION about Doug Lamborn:

Been in office a long time with very little to show for it as far as I am concerned. Seems to be more supportive of defense contractors vs the military. When asked for his help for a veteran in dealing with the VA, Lamborn never followed through and just ignored the veteran.

OPINION about Doug Lamborn:

In order to contact his office, you have to use a webform. Why? Doesn’t he have at least a government email that he trusts We the People with? I guess not.

Rebecca Keltie: US Congress-House Congressional District 5

OPINION about Rebecca Keltie:

She says a lot of things that sound good, that sound similar to what other candidates are saying.  Says she's pro-life, says she wouldn't vote for an omnibus bill "til the yuck is removed".

When I asked what her top priorities would be should she get elected, she listed the following:Term LimitsSecure our BordersBring Manufacturing Back to the USA -- take back our power. Stop giving our Money to Countries that hate us. Get rid of illegal agencies such as FDA, IRS

While she says we need to remove Dominion machines and have paper ballots (if that's what the people want), she doesn't think anything can be done about the 2020 election, that if it could have been done, it would have been done already.  She thinks we all need to be on guard and be extra vigilant this go-around (not like that helped much in 2020).  And, most telling to me, this issue did not make her list of top priorities when I consider it to be one of the most important issues of this election cycle.

She thinks that we need people in Congress whose core values fall in the middle, not to the far left or to the far right, that we need to find areas of agreement and build from there.  My question is, where has that gotten us so far?  Middle-of-the-road people have not brought the desperately-needed change we need in Washington.

I was disappointed by the tone of a couple of emails she sent out regarding the County Assembly and the one about not standing for a vote at the CD 5 Assembly.  The tone of these emails was not respectful or kind.  Particularly in the first one, it seemed like she was calling "Establishment" the pro-Constitution candidates who won the majority of the votes in that Assembly.  It seemed like double-speak to me.  

Something just doesn't sit right with me, and I don't trust her.  Since she hasn't been in office before, she doesn't have any kind of record to inspect, and I wonder what she would do if elected.

OPINION about Rebecca Keltie:

Rebecca has said negative comments about other candidates without giving more details other than look it up for yourself.

OPINION about Rebecca Keltie:

Ran as part of the Unity Party last time. Reason given in her email was “The answer is simple-running for congress is not something someone does without knowledge. I ran in 2020 to prepare for my 2022 election, and I knew I wanted to run in the 2022 midterms. I chose the Unity party to learn from because it was an open-style party that still allowed me to be my conservative self (and was less corrupt than our GOP).” If she learns by doing and needed to experience running a campaign to be ready for this one in 2022, that leads me to wonder whether she is ready to actually serve in Congress. A congressional run is different than actually serving on Congress. She does not have experience actually serving in Congress. Having no experience is not always a bad thing. It can lead to change and I want that. But, she admits she needs it in order to learn. From her email: “I’m the type of person that learns from doing. Believe me, there is NO ONLINE TRAINING or Masterclass that would have ever prepared me for running in a Congressional election.”

OPINION about Rebecca Keltie:

I, personally, did not appreciate the email from Rebecca regarding the El Paso County Assembly. Maybe I misunderstood it, but it seemed critical of the current El Paso County GOP officers. I’m not sure why she felt compelled to say what she said.

Brandon Mimiaga: US Congress-House Congressional District 5

Christopher Mitchell: US Congress-House Congressional District 5

Andrew Heaton (aka H. Andrew David): US Congress-House Congressional District 5

OPINION about Andrew Heaton (aka H. Andrew David):

Regarding Andrew Heaton, I can find very little information.  He is petitioning onto the ballot.  His website is pretty bare-bones with NO information about social issues or election integrity issues.  His main thing seems to be supporting veterans.  

He doesn't seem to have a way to contact him to ask questions.  I couldn't find information on his website regarding how to contact him.

Without a clear understanding of where a candidate stands on social issues (particularly pro-life), I won't vote for him.
