Listen to employees or civilians that are professionals in the “affairs at hand.” Too many individuals without experience in the “subject matter at hand” are given authority to make decisions based on seniority rather than experience. It represents our state poorly. It doesn’t need to be the case if people are hired for their strengths and capacity rather than longevity. Keep CO STRONG!
Update office building, tools and supplies. Basic needs such as bathrooms and coffee were in poor to miserable shape.

I would open up the toll roads to Colorado residents and charge them $100 a year to use them without additional penalty. We need to think about the environment and all these vehicles sitting in traffic

Overall, the State of Colorado is a wonderful government employer; the Department of Corrections, however, is a different story. The director has tried to implement policy and procedure which, I find, detrimental to the citizens. For example, a drug offender with a serious violent mental health history was allowed to parole to the alley way, in a tent, behind the work place of his victim. While this victim was not hurt, another innocent homeless person was bludgeoned to death. Policy dictated that this man did not have to have a physical residence to parole to.
If I were in charge, no violent offender would be able to parole to the community without a physical residence or go through a community corrections program in the area to where he or she wants to parole.
Allowing parole officers the discretion to complete their job to the best of their ability, to keep the community safe should be the ultimate goal.
The State of Colorado as a whole is good.
