|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
State Sen. Greg Brophy (R-Dist. 1) announced Sunday, July 14, his campaign to become Colorado’s 43rd governor.
“I’m running because I believe that Coloradoans deserve better. We should have a government that limits itself instead of limiting your liberty,” said Brophy. The seven-city statewide campaign announcement tour began Sunday in Parker.
“Instead of limiting the capacity of ammunition magazines, we should increase the capacity of our highways,” said Brophy. “Instead of increasing utility bills, we should be increasing the number of charter and magnet schools in Colorado. The governor has divided our state by focusing on fringe issues, rather than the kitchen table issues we really care about.”
Brophy has been called one of the state’s most conservative lawmakers. He has made headlines and earned respect for his unwavering dedication to fight for the rights and issues that are truly important to Colorado.
During the 2013 session, Brophy was the face and the voice of liberty and personal freedom when he led the unified stand by Republicans against the most extreme gun control bills ever seen in the Rocky Mountain West.
“Instead of special interest paybacks, Coloradoans should be paid more. We will foster an environment that creates jobs and opportunity here instead of outsourcing that opportunity to other states.”
Brophy has consistently fought to cut spending and opposed tax increases in Colorado. “Instead of seeking tax hikes, we’ll prioritize reform, cut fraud and abuse and chart a course for a truly balanced budget for years to come. My focus will be on leading a no-drama government of which you can be proud.”
Brophy is a farmer, husband and father from Wray. In 2002, he was elected to serve as a state representative. Brophy has served in both the State House and State Senate and has built a long record of standing for individual liberties and standing against the overreach of government.
