Cynthia Sarmiento

Biography:

Cynthia is a third generation Colorado native who lives in Thornton with her husband, Ben, and son, Emiliano. As a 15-year resident of Thornton, she fully committed to her community. Cynthia is a graduate of Broomfield High School. She attended Regis University for her Undergrad Degree where she became part of a mission of lifelong learning through service. She has exemplified that mission throughout her career, whether it be working as a Disaster Mental Health Worker for the Red Cross during 9/11 or funding her own charity events to feed the homeless. She attended the University of Colorado at Denver, School of Education, for graduate school. Cynthia is a strong businesswoman with a common sense approach. She has practical experience working in crisis situations, testifying in court, teaching, public speaking, and entrepreneurship. This experience positions her for success as a State Representative. Cynthia appreciates the true nature of public service and is committed to exemplifying that by listening to the constituents she represents, collaborating with community members, upholding governmental transparency, and protecting our liberties from unnecessary governmental control and waste. Focus of Campaign: “I am running for office because I believe we are at a critical turning point not only in Colorado, but as a nation. We must be charged with preserving a nation for the next generation that embodies strong values while embracing progress. My son is 11 years old and nothing makes me more proud than watching him grow each day. It is my job as a mother to ensure he is safe and that he grows up, to have a passion for civil service and love of God. In my work in higher education, I have seen the stronghold the socialist democrats have on many young people. I have also seen strong, motivated, young people who want to step up and represent more conservative values and become an appreciated part of restoring our system. My experience puts me in a unique position to foster that growth.”

We have seen an influx of money into Colorado from extreme liberal groups like the ones in New York and California. In 2018, we saw the election of a Governor who has clearly ignored the vote of the public over his own agenda. If we do not stand up and take action, our freedoms will be stripped from us.

With your support, I will make it my top priority to protect families’ rights and choices in the educational system and health care system by promoting legislation to protect children from progressive indoctrination. We have been told far too long that government knows what is best for our children. I will promote and protect the energy sources, jobs, and revenue created from responsible fracking and oil and gas production in Colorado. With an ever-increasing need to address our stability in the world market, it will be my goal to hold up legislation in Colorado that supports energy independence. I will address breakdowns in the mental health system and work to resolve problems in that system while better utilizing existing resources.

As your State Representative, I will not have every answer, but will commit to listen to the people who elected me. I pledge to fight to represent and serve them. It is only with your help and support that I make headway on this mission. Please consider making a financial investment in my campaign or dedicate some of your time to promoting my candidacy. My son once heard a candidate speech that asked for donations and he said, “Mom, donations are when you give expecting nothing in return, giving financially to the right candidate is not a donation but an investment.”
