Tim Leonard is a rare and distinguished candidate

I am writing to recommend Tim Leonard for Colorado State Senator in the strongest terms. I have never had the honor of working with a more intelligent, more principled, better read, more astute individual. Tim understands economics (Keynesian and Austrian,) he is a history buff, and he understands the proper role of government. He is from the private sector, has a brilliant mathematician wife, and six children whose future is at stake.

Tim Leonard speaks of the proper role of government in terms of reducing the inappropriate, burdensome hoops that families and businesses have to jump through to satisfy government requirements; in terms of shutting off the spigots of special interests feeding at the public trough; in terms of having trust in individuals to know what is best for their own families and lives. He does not believe government is there to serve as our “nanny.” He does not believe government is there to serve special interests. They are not our interests.

I worry that people will fall for the negative advertisements that have come out against Tim. These extraordinarily misleading hit pieces were put out by a group called “21st Century.” I did a little research on “21st” and discovered nothing of surprise. Their biggest donor is a Union PAC out of Washington, D.C. Their other big donor is a guy named Gill, the millionaire progressive from California. The other donors are special interests – trade unions who have a vested interest in keeping the public funds flowing.

I’ve met and studied Tim’s opponent. She’s a nice lady, albeit misguided. She believes that we do need a nanny and sees no harm in using tax money from the private sector to do what is best for us – and she’ll decide what is best for us. Good intentions can have unintended consequences, not the least of which is spending our State into the ground.

It makes no difference what your party affiliation is. If you are a hard worker in the private sector, you have a vested interest in electing someone who trusts you personally to be the best decision maker for your family and business. It is really that simple. Check Tim out at Tim@TimLeonardforStateSenate.com and cast your vote for you and yours. Cheers.
