Thea Chase endorsed by fellow Palisade trustee for House 54

The partisan divide in our political discourse has devolved into something much more serious in recent years, and it resembles the sectarian conflicts of nations we often provide stability for. It’s a problem that we all seem to recognize but are reluctant to take responsibility for. As one voter, I am going to take this opportunity to seek out candidates who ignore partisanship and seek out solutions to problems. With that in mind I am endorsing independent candidate Thea Chase for House District 54.

I have the pleasure of serving with Thea as a trustee in the town of Palisade. Prior to my time on the board, and since being elected, I have been humbled by her ability to serve in the civic realm. Thea’s biggest strength, and what she will bring to the state Legislature, is an uncanny ability to ask critical questions about a wide range of issues. Her broad experience in multiple sectors, mixed with her generally inquisitive mindset allows her to seek answers that most people overlook.

More often than not, I find myself, and observing other board members questioning our own understanding, and a substantive discussion ensues. Her ability to seek out deeper understanding or to draw more information out of people addressing the board consistently puts us in better situations to make decisions. This makes her an invaluable asset to our board, but also a potentially game changing legislator at the state level.

Most importantly her agenda is not pre-set, but is rather representative. Instead of exhausting her campaign efforts on pushing an agenda, she has focused on initiating group discussions on specific topics that pertain to western Colorado. With Thea Chase you will never have to worry that she is coming into a discussion uneducated or without a basket full of critical questions to test a hypothesis. Furthermore, she will not forsake doing the right thing for the sake of pushing an agenda. It is without reservation that I endorse Thea Chase for House District 54 and I feel privileged to do so. Please join me in taking ownership of our current political state by electing a critical problem-solver who will stop at no end to serve your best purposes.
