Mitsch Bush has the right skills, experience

Aspen Daily News | Dorothea Farris  | June 6, 2018

The political season is upon us. One does not need to look far for an issue that closely affects us. Issues may be local, state, national or international issues, but the impact is personal. If we are to support the democratic (small d) concept of participation and community well-being based on involvement, we have no choice but to be involved. It is easy to identify issues and concerns, and most of us can invent a simple solution to the problems, but only a few can turn issues and concerns into a resolvable concept and move toward cooperative resolution for the benefit of our society.

The 3rd Congressional District of Colorado (elected Representative serves in Washington D.C.) represents one of the most diverse and sensitive districts in Colorado. Its environmental, social, economic, recreational, historic, and community interests require care and attention. The balance required in decisions regarding these issues is critical.

It’s time for Diane Mitsch Bush to get her shot

Aspen Times | Paula Swenson | June 6, 2018

It's time for a change in Washington. It's time for us to have a representative who cares more for the people than for party politics and their paycheck. It's time for our representatives to work together, across the aisle. It's time for us, the people, to make that change.

It's time to send Diane Mitsch-Bush to Washington DC to represent the 3rd Congressional District of Colorado.

Protect public lands: Vote Bush

Telluride Daily Planet | Jane M. Errion | May 30, 2018

The fate of public lands is one of the most important issues in the race for the Congressional District 3 seat. Our current Representative, Scott Tipton, advocates for the sale of public lands. The oil/gas industry, regardless of access via leasing agreements, lead the movement.

Eighty percent of the public lands in Colorado are within the CD3 boundaries.

Democrat decision: Three candidates vie to try and unseat Rep. Tipton

Durango Herald |  June 5, 2018

Democrats will have a difficult time unseating Scott Tipton in the competitive 3rd Congressional District, which includes the Western Slope and most of southern Colorado.

Tipton is seeking a fourth term, and an incumbent, even one from an a party in disorder in Washington, has a significant advantage.

The Democrat most prepared to be an effective voice in Washington is former two-term state representative Diane Mitsch Bush of Steamboat Springs, who has been a member of Club 20’s executive board and who has taught full time at Colorado Mountain College.

Beating Tipton

Pueblo Chieftain | Oliver Johnson | June 5, 2018

If you agree with those who think that Scott Tipton is completely out of touch with the majority of his constituents, that his voting record does not reflect the values and needs of the people of the 3rd Congressional District and that he is unwilling to fulfill his constitutional obligation to act as an independent legislator, then there are only two realistic choices to "vote him out."

Woman power

Pueblo Chieftain | Jan Symchych | June 3, 2018

Can a woman win the 3rd Congressional District? Maybe this question would’ve been relevant in the 1950s, but with powerfully able women leaders as ambassadors to the United Nations, as justices of the Supreme Court, as governors and senators — it’s a question of yesteryear. The very question suggests that our district is behind the times and bigoted. The question should insult us.

The crucial reality of this race rests in electing a representative with both the passion and know-how to get the job done in Congress. This is not a job for those who are not yet steeped in the rigors of legislating for results.

For the environment, vote for Diane

Aspen Daily News | Tricia Farrell | June 2, 2018

Again, I would like to respond to my friend Fred Malo’s letter from May 29th (“A troubling endorsement”, Aspen Daily News). Insinuating that Diane Mitsch Bush has ties to any sort of anti-environmental industry because of her endorsement from Ken Salazar is far fetched and simply a smear. You can’t possibly be questioning if Diane will truly champion our environment? How do you explain the fact that she was 2017 Conservation Colorado’s Legislator of the Year after her years of work protecting our environment? Or, how about her recent endorsement from our former Governor Bill Ritter? Ritter is renown for his work here in Colorado on renewable energy and he’s now the Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University. Ritter called Diane, “the pioneering, forward-thinking, environmental steward we need to protect our home, Colorado’s way of living, and our economic foundation.”

Diane has an admirable cross-section of support

Aspen Daily News | Chuck Tidd | June 1, 2018

Why elect Diane Mitsch Bush to run against Scott Tipton in 2018? I’ve met Diane. She’s smart, tough and gets things done. She supports universal healthcare — rated a champion by the Colorado Foundation for Universal Healthcare. She’s taken the No Fossil Fuel Pledge. She works for public education, environmental protection and economic equality for all. She was named Legislator of the Year by the Trucker’s Union, Rocky Mountain Farmer’s Union, Colorado Livestock Association and Conservation Colorado. That’s an admirable cross-section of Congressional District 3. Her endorsements include Progressive Democrats of America, Bill Ritter, Colorado AFL-CIO. She’s a principled representative who has stood up to the NRA, the oil and gas lobby, and will stand up against the Trump agenda.

The winner will get to challenge Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., this November. Mail ballots go out to voters next week.

Diane Mitsch Bush is the real deal

Aspen Daily News | Stacey Weiss | May 31, 2018

Colorado primary ballots should be arriving in your mailbox any day now and primary Election Day is Tuesday, June 26. This year, both affiliated and non-affiliated voters are eligible to vote in the primary. As you consider the candidates for our 3rd congressional district, I urge you to vote for Diane Mitsch Bush.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet Diane and hear her speak several times. She is impressive and inspiring; a person of integrity and character. Diane was elected twice as Routt County commissioner and three times as state representative. She is well-informed and experienced in addressing the issues facing Coloradans and is a tenacious fighter for Democratic priorities. Here are a few of the many reasons why I’m voting for Diane....

Congressional candidate Mitsch Bush is intelligent, and un-bought

Vail Daily News | Katherine Delanoy | May 30, 2018

It is, finally, clear to me that the Koch brothers are the power behind most of the anti-environment, water-wasting, pro-fossil fuels and chemicals propaganda that affects congressional voting. I have become aware that any Republican who goes up against them does so at his/her own peril.

Mitsch Bush’s can help end Congress’s disgraceful inaction on gun control

Aspen Daily News | Alex Feuer | May 26, 2018

I applaud Eric Seward for his call to action in his May 22nd letter. Yes, in the face of such disgraceful inaction in Congress we must, “elect leaders who have the courage to stand up to the gun lobby and enact real, meaningful change.” So why not vote for Diane Mitsch Bush? She’s the only candidate in the race that has actually stood up to the NRA. She has already demonstrated that she is exactly the courageous leader you describe, someone who stands up to the gun lobby and enacts real, meaningful change. In 2013, she voted in the Colorado House for full, universal background checks and magazine capacity limits.

U.S. Supreme Court Decision ‘Egregiously Wrong’

Pagosa Daily Post | Diane Mitsch Bush | May 25, 2018

On Monday, May 21, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, rigged the system even more against non-unionized working people.

At issue was whether an employment contract can prevent employees from engaging in class action lawsuits that question whether company actions are lawful. The majority opinion, written by Justice Gorsuch, legitimates employment contracts that deprive employees of the right to bring a class action lawsuit and instead force employees into arbitration. His opinion relied on the 1925 Federal Arbitration Act, instead of the newer 1935 National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).

Fixing legal corruption means electing new public officials

Grand Junction Sentinel | Edward Packard | May 24, 2018

Billionaires and super-billionaires have the potential to swing races, and this year they are trying especially hard to do so, pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into Republican campaigns while super billionaires who control publishing and broadcasting and cable properties direct their far right spiels at more than half the population.

No sale of public lands

Montrose Daily Press | Jane M. Errion | May 23, 2018

The value of public lands in Colorado was highlighted in an excellent article published Sunday, May 13, Montrose Daily Press. The fate of public lands, under debate for years, is one of the most important issues in the race for the Congressional District 3 seat. Our current Representative, Scott Tipton, advocates for the sale of public lands. The oil/gas industry, regardless of access via leasing agreements, lead the movement.

Eighty percent of the public lands in Colorado are within the CD3 boundaries. We are fortunate to live just a few hours, or even minutes, away from all that public lands offer. Many Americans may only visit Colorado once in a lifetime, but the joy and wonder experienced creates lasting memories. Do we not owe it to all Americans, even those not yet born, to protect these lands from any development?

Ritter throws support behind Mitsch Bush in 3rd CD Democratic primary

9News | ColoradoPolitics.com | May 16, 2018

Former Gov. Bill Ritter on Tuesday endorsed Diane Mitsch Bush, one of three Democrats running for the 3rd Congressional District seat held by four-term U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, maintaining that the former state representative is the only candidate who can oust the incumbent Republican.

Noting that he first met Mitsch Bush in 2006, when he was running for governor and she was a Routt County commissioner, Ritter said in a statement: “Unlike so many today, Diane has a unique ability to relate to people of all walks of life, listen to voters and work tirelessly to solve constituents’ problems.”

Former Colorado Governor and current Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University, Bill Ritter, endorses Diane Mitsch Bush to be the nominee of the Colorado Democratic Party in the June 26, 2018 Primary for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.

“I met Diane back in 2006 on the campaign trail. She was running for her first term as a Routt County Commissioner and I was running for Governor. I saw her build relationships across the partisan divide, connecting with voters of all political affiliations. Unlike so many today, Diane has a unique ability to relate to people of all walks of life, listen to voters, and work tirelessly to solve constituents’ problems.
