Still fighting for Democracy
Meet Robert Dimick, Jr.
For Colorado House Representative (62)
As a retired US Army SSG that served for almost 15 yrs, and deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, Robert knows the importance of action and results, over empty speeches and inflated talk.
He knows that it is imperative that our country is united in saving our Democracy.
The San Luis Valley relies heavily on water to thrive, because most of the land is farmland. The San Luis Aquifer, which can hold approximately 2,000,000 acre-feet of water, is drying at a rapid pace, having lost almost 1,000,000 acre-feet since 2002. The problem is that in recent years, because of climate change, the Valley averages 7 inches of rain in a summer. With warmer climate comes less snow, which means less snow melt into rivers, reservoirs and aquifers. I am going to fight to keep water in the San Luis Valley. I won’t let private companies come here and transport water to Denver for any amount of money. The farms here have been in these families for generations, and I refuse to let my friends and neighbors lose their farms and livelihoods to developers and greed. One of my neighbors is a beef rancher and to save costs on food for their livestock, they grow their own hay and alfalfa. If they are forced to grow potatoes, because it uses less water, then they also will have to sell their cattle. It’s not right, and I won’t let them, or the rest of the families that live in the Valley, lose everything they have built up over generations because the water that’s here is for sale.
