Our country was founded by individuals who held unique beliefs and opinions, but cooperated for the common good.
On Saturday April 4th, 2020, Critter Milton was nominated to represent the Unity Party in Congressional District 3. The general election will be held November 3rd, 2020.
"There are many shared issues to address, but Unity is the most important one. There is too much division in society and the fact that we cannot physically occupy the same space due to social distancing makes this even more critical.
Our forefathers created a unique structure that is built to be resilient in the face of challenges. They held unique beliefs, but worked together for the common good. Encouraging open debate is essential to the survival of freedom.
We don't agree on everything, but we don’t disagree on everything either.
We are stronger united than divided, we must cooperate in order to move forward together.
E pluribus unum; from many, one."

We are experiencing a mass extinction. We must take aggressive action to prepare for our evolving future.
Water is a commodity that is being wasted. Protection of our water supply and development of clean water technologies are essential to survival.
Protect our planet!
Coloradans are operating in a grey area due to inaction on cannabis legalization.
Many states have taken action independently, federal clarification is necessary.
As we react to the opioid crisis, we must learn from past mistakes and explore alternatives to prohibition.
Education not incarceration!
Our education system is fundamentally flawed, focus on test scores is not effective. We should position education as lifelong development of individual strengths and interests, rather than herding students toward graduation as a destination.
Free education for all!
This country was founded by individuals who held unique opinions, but cooperated for the common good. Encouraging open discussion of ideas is essential to ongoing freedom.
We are living in an accelerating technological world and the social distancing we have experienced in the last few weeks led to interesting adaptations. Schools, hospitals, businesses, and individuals have moved online. This transition was already in process, but it solidified due to COVID-19.
Education is the key to many of the issues we face during this progression. A flaw in our current system is the focus on testing. Graduation is a myth, there is no point where you have learned everything you need to know for your entire life. Every individual should learn as much as possible, about whatever they are interested in, on a daily basis, indefinitely.
We must ensure free universal access to information as we embrace the digital world. I envision this as a virtual library, potentially an extension of the Library of Congress.
Many things can be moved online, but child care is not one of them. This is a major burden on many parents, some are even forced to stay home rather than work. By combining universal daycare with free access to information, we can revolutionize our education system.

Much of my life has been spent skiing, hiking, and exploring our incredible planet. Unique education and experience has instilled a complex understanding of the world we inhabit. I enjoy smiling along a trail, scrambling across a ridgeline, skiing pow, and relaxing in the many hot springs sprinkled around our beautiful state.
Through my career as a financial advisor, I nurtured a broad understanding and enjoyed helping clients immensely. Since high level advice is only affordable for the wealthy, I now strive to leverage my knowledge and experience for the benefit of all people regardless of assets or any other discriminating classifications.
