“The legitimate object of government is to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done, but cannot do at all, or cannot so well do, for themselves, in their separate and individual capacities. In all that the people can individually do as well for themselves, government ought not to interfere.”
– Abraham Lincoln 1854
Hello and Welcome to
the Campaign Web Site
for Mary Parker
Thank you so much for visiting my web site to learn about my candidacy for the Colorado State House in House District 22, representing the Ken Caryl and Columbine neighborhoods.
I am running as an independent because I believe party politics have become so divisive that our legislative bodies are dysfunctional. If elected, I will not be aligned with any party ideology. I will call out obstructionism when I see it. And I will lead the way to build consensus on the issues that unite us all such as infrastructure improvements, excellent public education, and job creation.
As Abraham Lincoln said, we are a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Anything that is wrong with government can be fixed by informed and engaged voters. Millions of lives have been lost protecting our union. It’s our responsibility to keep this trust. Good government depends on good leaders. And if you want good government, you have to elect people who believe in it.
