Colorado State Senator - District 6

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website. I am honored to represent the citizens of our district in the Colorado Senate.  District 6 is truly one of the most diverse areas in the entire state. It covers Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, Montrose, Ouray, San Juan and San Miguel counties. This district incorporates all that makes Colorado special. There is a mix of the majestic San Juan mountain range, to the incomparable high desert, to the many rivers and streams that feed the strong agricultural base in the valleys. There is mining, ranching, tourism, recreation, industry, and local businesses at all levels that support the strong economic values our communities provide.
My work is always focused on studying the tough issues that lie ahead and working on meaningful legislation that will improve the quality of life for our district and all of the people of Colorado.

The purpose of this website is to provide essential and useful information that will be a resource for you to gain insight into the activities of the current legislative session. Currently, I serve on the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee; the Senate Local Government Committee; and the Water Resources Review Committee.
I welcome your comments, suggestions, and questions, because your communication is essential to maintaining and creating a better Colorado. Just click on the Contact Don tab above to send me an email, or note my capital office address and other contact information to the right on this page. I look forward to representing you!

“I think the biggest obstacle in the Legislature, when you get here, is not Democrat-Republican, it’s rural-urban. I think everyone who represents Southwest Colorado realizes that when you get here. Your district is more important than your party.” - Don
