If you want good government,
you have to elect people who believe in it.
“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 believe strongly in Abraham Lincoln’s view of government as quoted above. We can, and should, embrace individual freedom and liberty while also promoting the common interests we all have as citizens. I believe we mustn’t let the current climate of distrust blind us to the benefits of government leadership in the areas of justice, safe neighborhoods, a clean environment, and good education.
As Abraham Lincoln said, we are a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” 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.
