A Committeewoman for Colorado.
Distinguished Service, a Trusted Representative.
A proven track record.
As a small business owner and an active member of my community, I am gravely concerned about the direction our country is currently heading. But more importantly, I am very worried about how the federal government seems to be ignoring our local and state needs. States do not have the voice they once had. Local citizens do not have the voice they once did.
I will work hard with the new administration to change this broken system, and this is why I am proud to be your National Committeewoman.
I will represent the great state of Colorado at the national level, and I will fight for Colorado concerns and needs. Issues important to Colorado need to be heard in Washington D.C.
I will be that voice, that fighter, for our state. For us. For you.

“Ortegon certainly has left her imprint on the city. She helped defeat the 2009 ballot issue to install a strong mayor form of government in Pueblo.”
“She was instrumental in persuading council to reappraise the new Municipal Justice Center during its design, a step that cut the final cost to $20 million from more than $30 million.”
“I want to help the city weather these tough economic times,” she said. “I’ve worked closely with the administration in keeping down our costs without cutting services during this recession. I’m good with numbers. I study the issues. I do my homework and I always answer my telephone.”
