I grew up on the Western Slope of Colorado hunting, fishing and working in the Gunnison Valley. I have for the most part been an independent voter. I’ve met Diane Mitsch Bush, who is running for Congress, a few times and liked her immediately for her honest smile, her ability to listen and her knowledge of Colorado’s issues and support of the Western Slope. She wants to help create a domestic supply chain for health care products, medicines and hospital supplies. Freedom from dependence on other countries will translate to good-paying jobs we are currently supporting in foreign markets.
