Campaign themes


Rothe's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Economic Development
Excerpt: "Economic development should be priority one for the state government. If we do not work tirelessly to promote economic growth and make Colorado a better place to do business, we will not be able to fund the many things we want for the future of our state."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Education is the silver bullet. It can fight crime and poverty. It can lead our state to innovation, clean energy production, high-tech industry, global leadership, and small-business success."
  • Public Safety and Crime Prevention
Excerpt: "We will help the Colorado State Patrol meet its goal of zero highway deaths by 2025 by funding the installation of speed enforcement zone monitors along the I-25 and I-70 corridor. These zones will help alleviate the burden on state patrol officers, allowing them to focus on providing emergency services, DUI checkpoints, and highway safety programs."
  • Energy Innovation
Excerpt: "Our energy policy should be a comprehensive, "all of the above" approach. Domestic energy production should be encouraged and we should reduce our energy consumption. We must also reduce our dependence on foreign sources of energy and examine what kind of strategic energy future we want for Colorado. If we subsidize any energy production we must see a return on our investment of tax dollars in the form of affordable energy that meets our long-term energy goals."
  • Protecting our Natural Resources
Excerpt: "Fort Collins residents have spoken clearly time and time again that they want their city and state to have the cleanest air and water possible, and we must keep that mandate a priority for Colorado. From promoting clean energy alternatives to prohibiting emissions and water contamination, we can meet the needs of today while protecting our responsibility for tomorrow."
