Baby Boomer Empty Nesters
Thank you for taking time to browse this web-site. This page is written for people 50+ years old or older who live in District 50 and have grown (or,nearly grown) children.
Nationally, people who are part of this large, growing segment are mid-fifties or more, and live in the suburbs (possibly even where they grew up). Most are professionals working in government, health care, or manufacturing. These Baby Boomers are earning a comfortable living and benefi tting from years of prudent investing and saving.
- Married couples, some with children, but most without
- Average household size slightly lower than the national average (at 2.5)
- Found throughout the suburbs and small towns of metropolitan areas, where most residents own and live in single-family detached homes
- Households generally have one or two vehicles.
- Education: 34% college graduates; nearly 66% with some college education.
- Compared to national average, low unemployment and about average in labor force participation
- Typically, this group prefers eating at home instead of dining out
Home maintenance tends to be a priority among these homeowners
YOU and YOUR VOTE
Of the 75,000 people living in District 50, I would best fit as a person belonging to this group. I have things in common with the other groups also – but a marketing person would label me as a “baby-boomer empty-nester.” My hope is that I can win this upcoming election and represent all the good people in our district well, including those who have differing views from me.
The incumbent is Dave Young. He is a good person – I just disagree with him. He has held the seat for several years. In Colorado, there is a 90% win rate of incumbents for the Colorado House. Dave had over $24,500 raised before the primaries even took place. As of this moment (May 24, 2016), I have less than $200 raised. The probability of winning is low – yet I feel compelled to try.
As a father, grandfather, businessman, Christian, and energy expert – I disagree with Representative young in some key areas. In short, my platform is:
My preferences are:
- less government and regulation
- small business advocacy
- law enforcement advocacy
My contact information is listed on this site. I’d be honored to share a cup of coffee with you individually or in a group (large or small).
