Government should represent the people – not party bosses or special interest groups. As Independents, we not only support campaign finance reform and transparency efforts, but we are committed to upholding the democratic process. Let’s improve the system to better represent the country as a whole.
As Independents, we support increased civic participation. Representative democracy works best with open lines of communication between elected officials and the citizens they serve. We are committed to leveraging technology to engage constituents year-round, not just during elections.
We are committed to finding balanced, common sense solutions by understanding all sides of a particular issue. We will take a data-based approach to decision making and champion the best ideas, regardless of the party they originate within. Politics should not be a zero sum game, compromise is essential.
Nick Thomas Core Principles
Government should not involve itself in the private decisions of its people. Nick Thomas believes in social acceptance for all. He respects the diverse backgrounds of our citizens and immigrants, protecting each and every person’s right to an equal future within the American dream.
Like the majority of Colorado, Nick Thomas is fiscally conservative. He believes in finding common-sense compromise between the parties to put our country back on a sound financial path: balancing the budget and reducing national debt. This should not be a partisan issue – balancing the budget is common sense.
Small businesses create the majority of jobs in our country. With technology quickly shifting the economy, Nick Thomas will support legislation which helps these businesses thrive, while ensuring that every American has an opportunity to achieve their full potential in the future.
Nick Thomas believes in the integrity of our Constitution and the importance of the democratic process. He will put our nation’s long-term interests ahead of the electoral interests of the parties.
Climate change is not a political issue nor a debate. Rather, it is the most pressing problem of our time. Nick Thomas supports innovative, serious, and fast-acting solutions. We need to be good stewards of our environment today and for future generations.
Commitment to Service
Nick Thomas is committed to public service. He believes in maintaining open lines of communications with his constituents – so that he can best represent CD2. As an Independent, he is free to vote on the will of the people, instead of in the interest of party leadership of special interests.
