"I will be a strong and deliberate Governor. Leadership starts from the top. The State of Colorado currently has a great economy, but so many Coloradans are getting left behind and getting left out of economic opportunities. We have to include the forgotten people beyond the Front Range, Eastern Plains, and others who do not have access to opportunities. My job as a leader and as Governor, will be to ensure that the system in Colorado works for everyone. We have a beautiful State and I will fight to make sure that it stays beautiful for the next generation."

I will not and have not accepted any PAC money, or money from special interest!

Underwood's Colorado Youth Voting Act - Gun Violence

Enough is enough, and enough! We need a new allies against special interest. Our politicians will not act against the NRA on common sense gun legislation. These students need political voting power behind them to take on the NRA and other special interest, and thus, I will introduce our very best weapon; our youth. I want Colorado to serve as a national model for the rest of our country. I am going to empower a constituency that the NRA will not be able to bully or corrupt. I introduce to you, The Colorado Youth Voting Act.

This State Voting Act is not just about the NRA. We need our youth engaged in the political process early on, so we can develop their civic duty to vote and participate in our democracy.

Erik Underwood will create a Department of Rural Affairs for Rural Coloradans.

Underwood says, "It’s not all about the Front Range, so many of our Coloradans are being left behind in opportunity, and face issues such as water rights, and eminent domain. I will not sell our public lands, and we will protect our environment!”

Underwood also says that a Department of Rural Affairs will focus squarely on rural issues, such as Broadband, and to give rural Coloradans a seat at the table; concerning their economic growth and prosperity.

Westword Article - Meet Erik Underwood...Running for Governor as a Democrat

Westword Article - 10/19/2017

Erik Underwood, a tech-industry pro who switched his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat after his 2016 run for the U.S. Senate fell short, is a candidate for Colorado governor in 2018. In the following in-depth conversation, Underwood talks about overcoming an impoverished childhood en route to a successful business career and the details of his ambitious agenda for the state......He left the Republican Party after Donald Trump earned the GOP's presidential nomination last year, but he stresses that he's always been a moderate — and he believes his positions on free college, immigration, hemp, criminal-justice reform, the repeal of the TABOR Amendment and more are capable of appealing to independents as well as voters on either side of the major-party political divide.

Get to know him better below.....
