Independent Kathleen Curry: “Voters not happy with the status quo”

There's a reason that 40 percent of voters in Colorado's House District 61 are not affiliated with a political party, says the three-term incumbent state representative for the district, Kathleen Curry of Gunnison.

“They are not happy with the status quo,” says Curry, whose historic bid to win re-election to the state House as an independent write-in candidate has caught the attention of political observers from the Western Slope to Denver and all the way to Washington, D.C.

And, it was for that same reason that Curry broke from the Democrats late last year to become an unaffiliated member of the Colorado House during the 2010 session.

“People are ready for a different approach and most of all they are ready for elected officials to get back into the business of problem solving,” she told the Post Independent recently.

“I believe that the current system is not working for us, and it needs to be improved,” Curry said. “In order to put the district first, I believe I can do that best as an independent.”    - More -
