- Excerpt: "Health care is a value especially close to Armando. At Adams State College, Armando co-developed the Health Care Administration program which provides training and preparation for the “business-side” of health care. This program continues to successfully graduate students and many of them work for health care providers in the southern Colorado region."
- Excerpt: "Increasing access to education for all people from pre-school to collegiate levels is essential to having a productive community. Education is the great equalizer which promotes success for everyone, regardless of socio-economic level."
- Excerpt: "Protection of private property rights and the protection of water are critical for agriculture in this region. It is necessary for us to sustain the progress we’ve made in agriculture and to ensure the viability of this industry for future generations."
- Excerpt: "We live in the best area of the world where people know and appreciate each other as family, friends, and neighbors. The San Luis Valley and Lower Arkansas Valley enjoy a unique history of ambitious people who pioneered the lifestyle we enjoy today. It is my priority and obligation to preserve this lifestyle and make it possible for future generations to contribute to a positive legacy."
- Excerpt: "Many of our talented young people have to leave southern Colorado to find economic opportunities. Creating jobs and supporting small business development are needed to eliminate the talent drain of our communities. Tangible economic growth is economic value which you can see. It enables you to save for your future and your family’s future instead of living paycheck to paycheck. "
