Q&A with Dean Ormiston, candidate for state House District 64

What makes you the best choice for this office?

I’m old enough that I have seen a lot of these problems that keep coming back and I’ve had experience. I was county commissioner for four years here in Baca County. I have a diverse back ground, teaching school, working in construction and I have a degree in industrial arts. I’ve seen a lot of things that needs some restructuring, and if we don’t fix it, the same things will continue to keep happening.

If you’re elected, which one single issue will be at the top of your agenda?

I would like to help try to get the economy back on line and survive the coronavirus. I’ll do what it takes to get people back to work, kids back in school, people of of the house again. Those things are a real priority. We’ve never seen a disease like this one, and if there’s anything we can do to help we should do it.

Why are you seeking this office?

I’m getting older and all of the things happening in the world today, I hope I can help Colorado survive some of it. I’m 71 and kind of old-school, but I’m healthy and I want to help the state. I’ve got a lot invested here.

What else should voters know about you?

I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s, and came from a family with six kids, and we all had to work hard to support the family farm. I worked the fields when I was a kid, so I wasn’t born with a gold spoon in my mouth. I think people appreciate what they have more if they have to work for it.
