Tisha Casida, Independent candidate for U.S. House, Colorado District 3, has officially qualified to be on the ballot for the general election on Nov. 6.
Casida has been campaigning in the district for over a year, meeting with constituents and small business owners.
“We are so excited, and grateful for our volunteers and contributors who have made this possible,” said Casida, an advocate of pushing many functions of the federal government down to the state and local level, where there is, “more transparency and accountability” with the representatives.
Casida was recently included as a candidate in the Club 20 Debate to be hosted at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, where she will be talking about issues affecting voters along with Scott Tipton (R) and Sal Pace (D). This debate will take place on Sept. 8.
There are over 90,000 registered Independent (Unaffiliated) voters in Colorado’s third congressional district.
“My candidacy is about representing the voice of many people who are either not affiliated with a political party or who are frustrated with their political party,” said Casida, “and our platform is aimed at creating solutions for many people who desperately need freedom, economic prosperity, and peace in their lives.”
