Meet our Candidates
We need your help to take on both political parties! One donation will directly support our entire slate of common-sense, independent candidates for Colorado.
Over the last year, Unite Colorado has spoken with hundreds of leaders about running for office as independents. Ultimately, we’ve chosen to endorse those who we believe: have strong character and integrity, are aligned with our principles and approach to governance, and have a viable path to victory.
Each of our endorsed candidates has signed the Declaration of Independents, pledging to put the people before the political parties and special interests.

Paul Jones, House District 59
Paul Jones was born, raised and spent his entire career as a Game Warden and law enforcement officer in Colorado. He and his wife, Kathy, a teacher, have been married for 24 years and have raised two boys in Southwest Colorado, aged 19 and 17. Paul is running because he believes it’s time for our political system to answer to the people again. Our legislature needs ordinary citizens who can actually be stateswomen and statesmen, not Democrats or Republicans.
