Meet Robert Dimick Jr.
"I think Southern Colorado is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and I will work tirelessly to keep it that way."
I was born in Cortland, NY, and raised in Cleveland, OH. I got my first job at twelve, as a golf caddy, and have worked ever since. At a young age, I knew I wanted to serve my country. So I joined the US Army in high school and reached the rank of Staff Sergeant and became a Drill Sergeant, who served for almost 15 years. I’ve been deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq and I know what hard work, and dedication is worth.
As long as there is freedom, the pursuit of happiness, and the American dream, I will keep fighting for what is right. It is in everyone's interest that we preserve democracy and the future of this country. Throughout the last year, our communities have been polarized by a wide range of issues, and I wish to reunite us all. My decisions are based upon facts and I believe in the same science that helped eradicate so many other diseases our country has faced. Some leaders have failed the very people who believe in them. Pick up your neighbor, for you never know when you might need someone to help you get up too. Compassion and empathy are the keys to leadership. In my experience, people respond better to a leader who will work alongside them and with them, and not over them.
After traveling all over the world, I've learned how fortunate we are in this country to have certain things. Clean water, reliable electricity, if any. There is no plumbing in the Dominican Republic, so you cannot flush toilet paper. The United States is still a source of hope for many, and we should strive to remember that. Should I be elected, I won't forget that either.
