2013-2017

ROAD TO 2018

I Am Running for Colorado’s US Congressional District 3

I will be your strong voice in Washington, working hard and effectively everyday for ALL the people of the Western Slope and Southern Colorado.

 

We need a Representative in Congress who actually...

Understands the issues we face everyday in Southern Colorado and on the Western Slope: from outrageously high heath insurance premiums, to lack of affordable housing, little or no broadband service, crumbling transportation infrastructure, and lack of economic and educational opportunities for everyone

 

Uses evidence, not ideology, to solve the problems facing us, knows how to reach out and bring people together to build a brighter future

 

Demands full hearings on every bill so the public can know what each bill does

 

Reads a bill and the CBO score before voting on it, genuinely tries to understand the implications for us—how that policy will affect us, and cares enough to ask us what we think

 

And who is transparent, responsive and accountable to YOU.

 

I promise you that I will always:

  • Listen to you, respond to you, and reach out to YOU
  • Gather all the evidence before voting on your behalf
  • Put aside my ego at the Capitol steps. This is not about me, it’s about serving YOU
  • My record as both a rural county commissioner and as Colorado House Representative for two rural counties shows that’s who I am
  • That’s how I operate. I have earned a reputation for integrity, accountability, truthfulness, and for working hard and effectively

 

At our State Capitol I have worked across the aisle for practical solutions to:

  • Expand economic and educational opportunities for ALL
  • Protect our air quality, our water supply and our wildlife habitats/public lands
  • Help our communities thrive by:
    • Ensuring that people feel safe, respected, and listened to and
    • Trying to get more rural access to infrastructure needed for community vitality:
      • Reliable high-speed broadband, affordable, quality health care, and a multimodal transportation system giving hard working people real choices

Now I want to be YOUR strong voice at our nation’s Capitol to help build a brighter future with opportunity for ALL. I want to bring my proven legislative skills, my knowledge of the issues, and my open, accessible approach to Washington to work for you. My record shows that I know how to get things done in a divided legislature.

 

We can build a more just, equitable, sustainable, and prosperous Colorado and America for ALL of us and ALL our children.

 

I’m Diane Mitsch Bush and I’m running for Congress to represent YOU and all the people of our beautiful district. I would be honored to have your support.
