Environment and Water

Home / Issues
As a former conservation instructor at the Philmont National Boy Scout Camp, I am a strong advocate for responsible conservation policies, the wise use of our natural resources, and the need to preserve open space for future generations. I advocate a balance between environmental protection, recreational use and resource management. We must explore and develop options for the long-term availability of water resources, while using responsible conservation policies such as healthy forest management. I support projects to deliver water owned by Colorado Springs to our local area.

Extreme Erosion in N Douglas Creek 21 Sept 2013

The photos below show new erosion caused by flash flooding in North Douglas Creek, Colorado Springs, on the north section of the Flying W Ranch. Huge amounts of decomposed granite have filled in the creek valley, destroyed containment ponds, and may pose a larger threat to city storm water systems.
