EDUCATION

“Children belong to their parents, not the government.”

Tara supports freedom, choice, & transparency in our everyday lives. From medical decisions, our children, & free speech, Tara trusts you to do what’s right for your family.

Karen not only believes the government should restrict medical freedom, she advocated for endless government mandates, dismissing constituent’s concerned voices.

“We need to limit the size & scope of government to curb their ability to tax and & regulate”

Tara also wants to protect property owners, especially those on fixed incomes, from our antiquated property tax valuation process.

Tara supports putting policies in place that support protecting citizens and work to find solutions to address mental health and drug addiction.

Tara will ensure drugs are off our streets & hardened criminals are prosecuted to the fullest extent.

Mother. activist. defender of liberty

As a passionate advocate for personal liberty, the family, our communities, and our children, I have the leadership necessary to represent HD-11.  My opponent has voted 100% down progressive caucus party lines for legislation that has done nothing but hurt Coloradans.  From higher taxes, more regulation, crime bills that enable drug use and trafficking, and policies that hurt our children and small businesses, I can provide you with an alternative. My priorities are simple: address the rising cost of living, rising crime, and overreach from elected and unelected officials who believe they know what is best for you and your families.

Policy & Issues

crime

Our safety has been compromised by politicians who are simply soft on crime.  Throughout our state, and here in Longmont, crime is skyrocketing. Government’s first priority should be to ensure citizens are safe. 

basic rights

During the pandemic it became clear that elected officials and bureaucrats made all the choices for us and our children. There should be more checks and balances on how much power elected and unelected officials have.  

business

Businesses have suffered from mandates, taxes, and overregulation. We need a pro-business leader at the statehouse who understands the issues businesses face and will advocate for cutting red tape and getting government out of the way of job creators.

education

We should have school choice, parental input and more transparency in Colorado state education policy and curriculum. I support a voucher system and more charter schools. Public schools should not be the only choice for parents who believe schools are polluted by agendas that do not support parental involvement.
