I met Tara Menza one Sunday afternoon several months ago when she was walking in Old Town Longmont with several of her young sons. After talking with her and hearing why she was running for office, I determined that she stands for many of the things I stand for.
Tara supports school choice, parental control, and more transparency in curricula. She supports putting policies in place that protect citizens, including ensuring that drugs are off our streets and that hardened criminals are prosecuted to the fullest extent. Tara thinks it's important to limit the size and scope of government, because she trusts us, the people, to do what is right for our family and our community.
Vote for Tara Menza, a lover of freedom and personal choice.
