What Voters Need to know
Voters of the 3rd district of Colorado need to know this campaign will not win with attacks on Lauren Boebert’s personal life. Instead, we will highlight her choice to focus her resources on promoting herself, chasing conspiracy theories and promoting false rumors about the last election instead of serving the people of rural Colorado. We will highlight her failure to focus on the policy issues important to hard working Coloradans including her votes against veterans services and healthcare, against making computer chips in America which would cost American jobs and her extreme view to make ALL abortions illegal even cases of rape or incest. Lauren Bobert’s record does not represent the needs of the people of the 3rd district.
Voters also need more positive information about Adam Frisch as a mainstream Colorado businessman who will bring people together and work across party lines to put Colorado water, Colorado energy, Colorado Jobs and the people of rural Colorado first. When Adam gets to Congress, he will work hard on the issues facing rural Colorado in contrast to Lauren Boebert’s focus on ANGERTAINMENT. In Congress, Adam will represent all constituents of the Third District, regardless of political affiliation, never giving credence to divisive labels those outside Colorado use when they describe voters in rural America.
With a shrinking supply and ever increasing need from downstream states and the Front Range, our district’s water is under threat. It is critical the 3rd Congressional District has a serious, competent representative sitting in the rooms where the decisions about our district’s water is made and who is laser-focused on working with anybody to protect our water for all of our residents, especially farmers and ranchers. In Congress, I will fight to keep outside interests from making decisions about our water and work to provide funding for healthy watersheds, increased storage, modernized water infrastructure and better conservation practices. I will do whatever it takes to protect Colorado’s water and keep it in its home basins. Like almost every issue, tackling these big issue in a bipartisan manner will be the only way to see legislation implemented.
Unfortunately, Lauren Boebert has repeatedly voted against bipartisan investments in water infrastructure for the 3rd district, even voting against critical funding for the Arkansas Valley Conduit that will ensure a long-term water supply for 50,000 Coloradans surrounding Pueblo.
Colorado is a leader in energy production, and our state should be at the forefront of making America energy independent and energy secure. The United States should not be begging countries like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Iran for energy help. We must have an ‘all of the above’ energy production policy that includes responsible oil and gas production, wind, solar, nuclear and hydropower, and emerging technologies like hydrogen. This will make America stronger, help us build an economy that ensures families and communities across our district have what they need to thrive, and will be much better for the global climate.
Meanwhile, Lauren Boebert was one of only 17 members of Congress to vote against protecting Colorado’s energy industry and to allow oil imports from Vladimir Putin’s Russia, rather than making the United States energy independent.
Agriculture is at the heart of the district’s history and our economy. Our ranching and farming families work hard to help feed our state and our nation. In Congress, I will work to protect our water, open up markets, make sure producers aren’t at the mercy of middlemen and monopolistic practices, and fight bad policies and regulations coming out of Washington. I will be the hardworking representative our agricultural producers deserve and can count on.
Meanwhile, Lauren Boebert has been no friend to our farmers. She voted against bipartisan legislation that would support farmers by improving water resources and improving trade networks to get crops to market more efficiently. And she voted against funding critical programs providing emergency loans to farmers and boosting agricultural research to halt livestock and crop diseases.
As a small business owner myself, I know small businesses create the majority of American jobs and drive local economies. I will work to cut regulations for Main Street businesses and support programs at local community colleges and universities to train the workforce of tomorrow. In Congress, I will make sure Western and Southern Colorado get the money we need to rebuild and modernize our district’s aging infrastructure, support our businesses, and boost our local economies. We also need to make sure we are creating and opening up jobs available to those without college degrees. These jobs are as — if not more — important to building healthy and thriving communities.
In Congress, Lauren Boebert has been no friend to Colorado small businesses and workers. She has voted against bipartisan legislation to invest in American manufacturing that will catalyze factory jobs across Colorado while helping us better compete with China. And she voted against funding for job training programs to help Coloradans gain new skills in growth industries at higher wages and ensure small businesses have the workforce they need to grow.
From gas to groceries to prescription drugs, the hardworking families of Colorado’s Third District are being hammered by the increasing cost of living. As a businessman I know we need to slash unnecessary government regulations, reduce spending, and solve our supply chain problems. We need to stop policies that chip away at the value of a day’s work, making it harder for families and businesses alike to make ends meet. In Congress, I will fight to rein in inflation and pass laws that will help create good paying jobs, so every family is able to put food on the table.
Lauren Boebert has repeatedly chosen to play partisan politics rather than pass solutions for Coloradans. She voted against lowering prices by holding companies accountable for taking advantage of Coloradans through price gouging and fraud. She voted against fighting inflation by lowering shipping costs and ensuring fair markets for American products, and against keeping prescription drug prices in check by capping the cost of insulin at $35 per month. And when Colorado mothers were faced with a shortage of baby formula, she was one of only nine members of Congress to repeatedly voted against bipartisan solutions to fix the problem and ensure children had access to the nutrition they needed to grow.
Politicians have no place dictating decisions that should be left to a woman and her healthcare provider. Lauren Boebert believes in government-mandated pregnancy – she is currently pushing legislation to ban all abortions nationwide – including in Colorado – with no exceptions for rape, incest, or situations when the life of the woman is at risk. This government overreach is not what Coloradans want or need. Each woman deserves the freedom to choose what is best for her body, her family, and her future.
We live, work and play in some of the most beautiful places on Earth, and our landscapes are at the heart of heritage and our way of life. Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District encompasses 49,414 square miles – 55% of which are federal public lands. In Congress, I will always work to protect our land, water, and air and preserve them for future generations.
