Probably no one is more surprised at what has happened over the last decade of Colorado’s Arapahoe County Commissioner Kathleen Conti’s life as Kathleen Conti.
From owning a home-based business in 2007 to being elected as Colroado Arapahoe County Commissioner in 2016, with a six-year, three-term stretch as Colorado State Representative from 2010-2016, her journey has been a wild ride. While fascinating for some, it might warrant a bit of a head tilt for others.
Conti - Congressman - Pleas - Neo - Moment
Conti has always considered herself “politically observant,” responding to “Contact your Congressman” pleas and the like. But like many of us, once you experience a Neo moment (from The Matrix), taking the red pill, you start to see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Her first “rabbit hole” was a firsthand experience in how small business regulations were killing small business. After she moved past the “This is insane” moment, she became proactive. Believing that education is key to reform, she decided to form an educational non-profit based on free market truths.
Cherry - Creek - Republican - Women - Meeting
Not really knowing how to go about this, in 2009, she attended a Cherry Creek Republican Women’s meeting and was introduced to then-Colorado House Representative David Balmer. After several minutes of explaining her non-profit idea, Balmer interrupted her and asked, “Have you ever considered running for office?”
“When someone that you just met asks a question like that, you have to pause,” Conti said. “In fact, he even suggested the office to run for. I was truly taken aback but it gave me something to think about.”
Rest - Conti - Journey - Theme - Moment
Listening to the rest of Conti’s journey, I noticed a repeating theme from the moment that she decided to run against a very well-known and well-liked two-term incumbent, Colorado State Representative Joe Rice. That theme continues today.
Confidently and vividly recalling her 2010 campaign, a common thread is woven throughout this beautiful tapestry....
