Farm Bureau Member Runs for State House

Longtime Farm Bureau member and Ignacio sheepman J. Paul Brown on Tuesday announced his candidacy for the 59th House District seat which is being vacated by Rep. Ellen Roberts.

Brown, a La Plata County commissioner for four years and an Ignacio school board member for 12 years, announced his candidacy on the steps of the County Courthouse before about 40 family members and friends. The theme of his announcement was aimed at reining in galloping government, taxation and regulation.

“Our country and our state have been governed too long by folks who think that government is the whole answer,” Brown said. “I believe in a citizen legislature, one in which representatives go to the Capitol,  govern only part time, and then return home to work, make payroll and pay taxes.”

Congratulations to J. Paul!  We at The Pulse wish him the best of luck in his campaign.

    I would suggest that the potential of having an actual “practicing agriculturalist” with previous public service experience to work in the Colorado legislature is of sufficient importance to all CFB members that every member ought to make a personal contribution to Mr. Brown’s campaign to assist with the effort to get him elected.
