Candidate for
Colorado House of Representatives District 5
Campaign website
Matthew Zielinski was a 2012 Republican write-in candidate for District 5 of the Colorado House of Representatives.


Campaign themes


Zielinski's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Taxes
Excerpt: "TABOR (Taxpayer Bill of Rights) is one of the biggest advantages that we as Coloradans have over residents of other states. It gives the voters and taxpayers of Colorado the final say on how we are taxed. Rep. Duran calls TABOR a “"fiscal knot" because it doesn’t let her make tax decisions for us. I will oppose any measure to take this power away from the people."
  • Charities
Excerpt: "Charities are the best and most efficient way for Coloradans to make a positive impact in their communities. For too long we have been told that in order to be compassionate we must hand over our money to bureaucrats and central planners so that they can decide what is best for the less fortunate. It is time for Coloradans to decide what causes are best! I will sponsor legislation that will create a double deduction for taxpayers donating to charities that preform their work in Colorado."
  • Gas Prices/Energy
Excerpt: "I understand that gas prices are not controlled by the state, but it is time for the legislature to make every effort to help keep energy affordable for Coloradans. Currently the state taxes the gas that you buy even if you don’t have a job or can’t afford it! I would propose temporary reductions in the state’s excise tax on gasoline during periods of high unemployment like the one we are experiencing right now."
  • Equal Rights for All
Excerpt: "I believe in equal rights for all people regardless of age, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation."
