I am honored to serve the citizens of House District 21 located in the southern part of El Paso County, Colorado. Sitting at the base of beautiful Cheyenne Mountain, looking out on magnificent Pikes Peak, HD 21 includes the City of Fountain, and unincorporated Fort Carson, Rock Creek Park and Security-Widefield. Stretching from Fountain to the east to the Teller county line on the west, HD21 is the second largest district in El Paso County covering 441.55 square miles with a population of 78,675.

Before moving to Colorado in 2002, Lois lived in Seattle Washington where she worked at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine. While there she played an integral role in starting the Cardiovascular Health Research Unit. Lois has her MBA from the University of Washington and a Bachelor of Science degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Maryland (. She and her husband, Jim who is retired from the Army, have 5 children and 6 grandkids. While in Germany Lois worked with the German Judgement to establish a Foster Care program for the children of Americans living in Europe. After moving to Colorado she became active in the political arena holding offices within the County GOP, serving on the City of Fountain’s economic development committee and on City Council. In between she has held many civic positions including Coordinator of the Red Cross Program in a US Army community of 10,000, zoo volunteer, PTA treasurer and 4-H leader. In 2012 she was elected to the Colorado State House of Representatives, where she is ranking member of the Public Health and Human Services Committee. She is also a member of the Health and Environment Committee and sits on the Heath Benefit Exchange and the Behavioral Health Transformation Committee. She considers serving the people of Colorado and especially House District 21 to be an extreme honor.

As ranking member of the Public Health and Human Services committee, a member of the Health, Insurance, and Environment Committee, I have run and passed many bills concerning public health issues. Some of my major legislation focused on issues such as severing the parental rights of a rapist for a rape conceived child, human trafficking, synthetic drugs, juvenal justice, idd issues, and mental health.
I’ve been recognized for my work by many organizations.

 

I support values important to you: Pro-business, Pro-education, Pro-life, Pro-family.
