Unveils Campaign Platform – a 20-Page Issue Paper on
Education, Jobs, and Recidivism in Colorado
Today, Republican Michael Fields announced his candidacy for Colorado State House District 37. The district’s current representative, Republican Spencer Swalm, is term limited.
“The election this past November makes it clear: Republicans need some fresh blood and new ideas. With the shifting demographics in Colorado and the nation, Republicans need to do a better job of being intentional about reaching out to all voters,” said Fields. “The message of opportunity and prosperity speaks to everyone – and it is our job, as Republicans, to effectively promote and advocate for the conservative policies that bring them about. I look forward to working hard to earn the support of voters across the 37th District,” Fields continued.
With his announcement, Fields unveiled his campaign platform entitled “Colorado’s Pathway to Prosperity.” It is a 20-page issue paper outlining how Colorado can improve education, create more jobs, and address its high rate of repeat criminal offenders.
