Brandon Bobian (D)
Bobian graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in aerospace engineering, and works as an engineer flying satellites for DigitalGlobe in Longmont. He entered the race to fight for our future. He says "Our politics have become so divisive and I feel as though people in the middle of the spectrum are being left out of the conversation."
He also wants to help the Democratic party be the party of decency and integrity. He believes we need to continue to stand up against hatred and racism and must continue to be the champions for women’s rights.
Issues of importance to Bobian are: fracking, healthcare, education and infrastructure.
Bobian said he wants to make sure fracking is safe for nearby residents and students, and said he believes Colorado can do more to balance the safety of fracking with its outstanding economic benefits.
Bobian believes we need to make Healthcare more affordable by expanding Medicaid and improving, not eliminating, Obamacare. He says he will fight to make sure everyone in Colorado has access to affordable healthcare - with or without the help from Washington DC.
Bobian wants the state we need to prioritize K-12 and higher education. He is a proponent of free full-day kindergarten free, making college more affordable and encouraging and de-stigmatizing the trade industries.
Finally, Bobian says that we need to plan ahead for our Colorado future, which includes a projected population increase by about 1 million residences in the next decade. He wants to invest in roads to ensure they don’t become gridlocked like we see in Texas and California, invest in schools so class sizes can get smaller and ensure that Colorado never has a water shortage.
