Federal Candidate Information

The following candidates have provided their information to be included on our website. Candidates are not listed in any particular order. The Weld County Democratic Party does not make endorsements of candidates in contested primary elections.

John Hickenlooper

United States Senate for Colorado

hickenlooper.com

John didn’t take a familiar path to office. He started out as a geologist, but after being laid off, he considered a variety of career options. Ultimately, he decided to open a restaurant in a then-neglected warehouse district in Denver. The result was Colorado’s first brewpub and a big hit.

In the first race of his life, John ran for Mayor of Denver and won. In 2010, John ran for Governor and helped to move Colorado from ranking 40th in job creation to leading by example as the number one economy in the nation. John brought people together across the aisle and across the state to get things done.

Now, John is running for Senate to make Washington work for Coloradans. Just like he’s done throughout his career, he will use his independent perspective
to bring people together to get things done — from lowering health care and prescription drug costs to keeping our families safe from gun violence, as well as protecting the state’s public lands while combating climate change

Ike McCorkle

Colorado Congressional District 4

ike4co.com

ike-mccorkle-colorado-200x300

Ike McCorkle is a retired Marine Corps Officer & Special Operator. He is a single father of three kids in Douglas County public schools. Ike is the grandson of a West Point Officer and WWII veteran, the grandson of an Army Air Corps Pilot and WWII veteran, the son of an Army Nurse Major, the brother of an Army Captain, the cousin of an Army Captain and cousin of an Army Sergeant First Class. Service is not just part of his experience; it’s part of his heritage.

Ike retired from the Marines in 2014 to be present in his kids’ lives and to recover from eighteen hard years of service in the USMC Infantry and Spec Ops communities. He hoped to take up gardening and other hobbies centered around colorful Colorado life, but the call to service rang again. To serve his kids, and your kids, Ike is answering that call.

Ike McCorkle is running in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District against incumbent Republican and corporate-sponsored poster-boy Ken Buck. Coloradans and all Americans deserve representation that serves the people, not just the elite. Colorado’s 4th deserves more ethical representation. We will answer the call to service, bringing integrity and the voice of the people back to this office. We will fight to get big money out of politics and create the America we are advertised to be: a representative Democracy, for ALL our people, not just those who can afford to buy politicians.

Holly A. Herson

Colorado State House District 48

hollyfor48.com

I have always called rural Weld County home, so after leaving Frederick where I grew up and moving to Loveland I attended The University of Northern Colorado. I decided to continue my career in healthcare rather than completing my first college degree to avoid accumulating debt.

My father died by suicide in 2009, and I made the decision to double down and get involved in my community. I became involved in suicide prevention and awareness organizations and became very involved with local politics. I went back to college for two degrees in political science where I was able to work for a Colorado State Senator specifically on healthcare policy during the 2017 Legislative Session.

I worked for an organization where I was able to perform hundreds of eye exams for homeless, and disadvantaged children and enrol them in Medicaid. I have helped to organize fundraisers, and to campaign for a successful mental health initiative in Larimer County impacting all of Northern Colorado. I currently work for a private practice in Northern Colorado, and have since 2009.
My wife and I became foster parents before starting our own family. We have one son, Liam who was born in 2019, and are very close with our foster son who is now 21.

We purchased our home in Milliken in 2018, and are in love with our community and with rural Weld County. More about me is available on Ballotpedia (https://ballotpedia.org/Holly_Herson).

Gen Schneider

Colorado House of Representatives District 63

genforhd63.com

My name is Gen Schneider and I am running for House District 63. I grew up in rural farming communities where small businesses and civil service were a way of life. My parents were small business owners and leaders in our rural town, and having these role models gave me a deep sense of responsibility to my community.

I have been involved with local politics since 2012, and I have worked hard for positive change in Dacono, Colorado. My family and I feel that the time has come to seek public office at a higher level. I want to bring more integrity, opportunity, and prosperity to our area by running for House District 63.

During my time in local politics, I learned how to work with many different people, all with diverse backgrounds and opinions. I also learned how to keep my resolve, even when it is unpopular to do so. I know that if I am elected to the Colorado House I can use these skills to help our families create a better life.

My top 3 issues are protecting reproductive rights, regulating oil and gas, and ensuring that our schools are properly funded.

State Representative Mary Young

Colorado House of Representatives District 50

maryyoungforcolorado.com

Hello my name is Mary Young, and I am honored to be the State Representative of House District 50. These are very chaotic times we are living in and it is difficult for me to talk about myself in these circumstance s, but I realize that you need to have an understanding of who I am and the values I hold.  I see myself as a life-long public servant, not as a politician. 

I am a life- long educator who has worked in public schools, primarily working with students with special needs, developmental disabilities and mental health issues.  I have been passionate about focusing on these issues while here in the State House. This work is ongoing and there are no simple fixes, but I am committed to finding real solutions for Coloradans. My commitment to these   issues isn’t just professional. My husband, Dave Young and I became co-guardians of my sister-in-law when she needed a liver transplant.  She faces medical, problem solving and mental health challenges.  The path we share with her has been a blessing and pushed our problem-solving abilities to the limits.  We are blessed to have her in our lives.

I strive to fight for well-funded quality education with well-paid educators, affordable housing, accessible healthcare, employment with living wages, and a healthy environment for the people in my district and the state.  As someone who believes in the inclusion of all no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, disability, age or whom they love; I believe that all Coloradoans should be able to have their needs met.  We will all work together to achieve a better tomorrow.

Weld County Candidate Information

The following candidates have provided their information to be included on our website. Candidates are not listed in any particular order. The Weld County Democratic Party does not make endorsements of candidates in contested primary elections.

Paul Echternacht

Weld County Commissioner At Large

I’m a fourth generation Coloradan, born and raised on a farm in eastern Boulder County. My primary focus, as your County Commissioner, will be the health, safety and well-being of all the residents of Weld County. That focus includes long term planning for the health of our agricultural base and employment in emerging agricultural industries.

Michael Welch

County Commissioner District 3

We need respectability and vision from the Commissioners

When I was working in the oil fields in and around Platteville for Schlumberger as a Field Engineer, I was completely unaware of the Wattenberg Field’s importance to Colorado and Weld County in particular, to a young man, it appeared to be like most other oil producing areas in the Western United States. I didn’t understand that the wealth that it was bringing and had brought to Northern Colorado had fueled a lethargy and inertia in local politics that continues today.

I want accountability and a thoughtful vision for the county which includes well-constructed roads, maximum investment from state level and a future of potable water that NISP (Northern Integrated Supply Project) will provide. I want Lochbuie, Firestone, Fredrick, Dacono, Erie, Fort Lupton and Platteville to be heard as much as the Greeley.

Join me in calling upon the Weld County Commissioners for respectability and vision for the future. Ask our County Commissioners to stop making taxation, gerrymandering and politically beneficial (to themselves) decisions and instead offer the necessary, meaningful support Weld communities need for a real future. I need your support and ask for your vote this coming November.
