Bob Beauprez on Principles & Values

Former Republican Representative (CO-7, 2003-2007)


Veto legislation that infringes on religious freedoms

From my very first day in office as your Governor, I will begin applying the values and principles to the State Government that have guided me throughout my life as a businessman, husband, father, public servant, author, and conservative leader. These come from faith, a commitment to freedom, and a sense that we all share the values that come from being part of a larger family. I will use the following values and guiding principles to help all Coloradans realize the opportunity they deserve.

My administration will veto legislation that infringes on anyone's religious freedoms, or forces someone to violate their religious beliefs; and protect the right of free speech, including the right to a free press.

1969: Graduated, married, and took over father's farm

I went to the University of Colorado in 1966 fully intending to get a degree in something that would get me as far away from that farm as fast as I could. Fortunately, for whatever reason and by whatever means, I came to my senses before graduation. In December 1969, I announced my intention to ask my longtime sweetheart, Claudia, to marry me and to ask my parents for a job on the dairy. It wasn't quite the return of the prodigal son, but close enough. Dad not only gave me a job, he built a house for Claudia and me next door to his, and put in place a plan to make me partner in the farm. Dad turned over enormous responsibility for the dairy herd to me and gave me latitude and opportunity that I never fully appreciated until years later. It was at this time that the land and the responsibility truly began to have an effect on me, and I began to notice how the changing world, the politics, were affecting our way of life.
