Garrison Ortiz has been the most refreshing breath of fresh air in this disheartening negative 2016 election season. He is a young, up and coming newcomer to the local political scene, with insight and experience in local and national business way beyond his 26 years. He is a natural leader who attentively listens to citizens, local activists, community leaders and his advisors, taking stances on issues with much admired caution and care. We welcome his intuitive business sense and believe that he will provide us with the type of strong, ethical leadership that has been lacking in the local, often self centered political scene that has disheartened our local citizenry for many years.

 
We have closely watched Ortiz’s admirable work ethic as he has continually plugged away to make his name known, slowly garnering support from all walks of life in our community through networking, attending as many local meetings as he could in the past few years. In the primary election season, Ortiz took the high road as several local republicans attacked and harassed him and his family using disturbing outlandish tactics as they campaigned, some of which were provided to us with video proof. Political insiders say that many republicans of influence began rallying for the impressive young Ortiz, with many switching parties to vote for Ortiz in the primary and against the republican candidate in the regular election Brian Mater. Ortiz didn’t let his new or long time followers down. He took the high road pushing his positive campaign forward with determination, stepping up furthermore as a leader in our community after defeating longtime democratic politician Liane “Buffie” McFadyen, the incumbent Pueblo County Commissioner and former State Legislator, in the primary.
,
Because of the positive heresy about Ortiz, we invited Ortiz to our reform meetings and have personally gotten to know him and his girlfriend, the beautiful Gabriela Gaucin. Ortiz seems shy at first, but he is rather, attentive. Early on in his campaign Ortiz was cautious about certain local issues, which one media outlet criticized, but we instead admire, even more so in hindsight. We’ve watched this eloquent, most insightful speaker build his knowledge base of local issues and his political base as a skilled businessman would, sincerely trying his best to reflect his constituents. We’ve enjoyed watching his sophistication and stances become stronger and stronger and there’s no doubt that this soft spoken young man can be a true powerhouse for the people.
 
We’ve recently seen Ortiz out pounding the pavement, personally going door to door to meet his constituents in Aberdeen and other parts of town. If you have the opportunity to meet Garrison Ortiz, you’ll see what we mean about this ethical young man with a heart of gold for our community. We expect that this determined newcomer is just beginning a long, successful political career, first taking the commissioner seat on the November 8th ballot then moving onwards and upwards with time. – Jenny Paulson
 
We give an ABSOLUTE VOTE YES for Garrison Ortiz (and an absolute VOTE no for Brian Mater) – Garrison Ortiz endorsed by #jennyjohnsonpaulson #puebloreform #takebackpueblo #southerncoloradoindependent #pueblokindnessproject
