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.

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.....

Underwood Has a New Plan and Initiative to Use Hemp to Bring Back Jobs in Rural and Urban Colorado

For Immediate Press Release:

Erik Underwood has a new plan to bring back middle class jobs to rural and urban Colorado. The Plan is called: Colorado Rural Urban Agricultural Hemp Manufacturing Initiative [CRUAHMI]. Erik says, "Some Coloradans are getting left behind in our great economy here in our State; we have to create jobs and opportunities for Coloradans with access to fewer career choices. Giving Colorado a Chance to Lead Globally Through Economic Innovations. ” –Erik

To date, Underwood is the only gubernatorial candidate to have a plan to bring back  jobs to rural and urban Colorado. True to his campaign theme, "Outward - Inward", Erik plans to keep his promise to those getting left out of our great economy.

The Problem: Lost jobs in rural and urban Colorado, the need for high paying jobs, and entrepreneurial opportunity for a new multibillion dollar economy and cash crop. Also, the need to reduce environmental short falls of cutting down trees, which takes longer to produce than hemp.

The Solution: To create an agricultural and manufacturing initiative that will make Hemp an exportable cash crop for Colorado, creating jobs in hard hit rural counties. Through this initiative, Colorado will generate billions of dollars in new revenue from hemp. This new tax base can help improve our schools, roads, and create more job opportunities, lifting more Coloradans out of poverty.

Uses From Hemp: Clothing, Shoes, Rope, Paper, Tee Shirts, Pants, Socks, Furniture, Construction, Beauty Products, and so many more manufactured items.

Underwood Lays out Plan for Colorado

His campaign motto is “Outward Inward,” a nod to representing rural Colorado just as much as its inner cities, he says. 

Underwood joins a Democratic primary field that includes former Sen. Mike Johnston, former State Treasurer Cary Kennedy, Intertec Plastics CEO Noel Ginsburg, and Boulder Congressman Jared Polis. Three lesser known candidates, Adam Garrity, Moses Humes, and Michael Schroeder, have also filed paperwork to run.

Underwood Running For Governor - April 2017

"We need fresh faces with new ideas, instead of recycled faces with old ideas ... I'm looking to provide strong leadership that is fair and in-line with our Colorado values," he said Monday.

He said he's uniquely positioned to attract moderate Republicans and conservative-leaning unaffiliated voters to the party, as well as retain moderate Democrats. And as a person who hasn't been elected to public office before, he retains an outsider's perspective.
