Morgan County GOP Committee,
There have been a series of unfortunate events that have occurred over the last several days and a lack of communication at many levels has not helped in this matter.
Regrettably, misleading information was posted to the “Holtorf For Colorado” website in late May by my campaign web designer. The Morgan County Republican Committee logo was used which implied an endorsement was made to my campaign by the Morgan County Republican GOP. The Greeley Tribune picked up on this information and published an article which made its way back to Morgan County.
I continue to strive to be a true leader and that includes taking responsibility for the actions of the people that help me. Although the error was made by one of my volunteer campaign staff, the buck stops ultimately with me. I was not aware of the incorrect posting until the day before yesterday when the Morgan County Central Committee Chair contacted me. I verified the error and immediately, on the same day, directed the web designer to remove the inaccurate content. I also informed the Morgan County Central Committee Chair that the misinformation had been corrected. The intent was never to mislead anyone and I took immediate corrective action in the matter which is the sign of a leader.
As is the case with a small staff of volunteers who help in any number of campaigns, mistakes can happen. I am sorry that this mistake has caused problems and put your committee in an uncomfortable position. It was never our intent to mislead anyone in Morgan County or anywhere in this new district. We corrected it immediately but also understood that this was used by the press. Again, I apologize for putting your committee in this position.
We as Republicans need to stick together and not allow those with different agendas to tear us apart. The true challenge is standing up to the progressive left democrats that are changing our state and not in a good way. In order to do that, I want to rebuild our trust and working relationships to further our conservative goals. I am committed to having better communications when we have differences so that we can work together to protect our rural way of life and avoid this type of problem in the future.
I can be reached at 970-520-0010 for any further conversations.
Candidate, House District 63
