Platform overview

Center Party Platform – September, 2021

The Center Party is dedicated to bringing civility back to politics, to bridge the divide between the extremes of the two major parties, to chart a course for government that represents the mainstream and center of public opinion, and to stop radical changes to our government, either from the left or right.

Colorado is a very diverse state, we celebrate our diversity and we are full of decent, respectful, caring people who are socially tolerant and want government to keep the playing field level so that everyone can have an equal shot at achieving their dreams. Government needs to be inclusive and transparent, allowing all people to have a voice, and to make decisions slowly, not in the dead of night before citizens can have their voices heard.

We believe in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, that we should judge people by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. We believe that we are a prosperous country and that we have a lot of resources to help those who are less fortunate, but that we must be prudent, to first know the limits of how much we have available to share.

We believe that the general structure of government is appropriate and that we should NOT experiment with radical government reforms. We do need to constantly look for ways to make government more operationally efficient as technology and business operations continue to evolve. Government reform needs to be fact based, and not on feel-good platitudes expressed in political campaigns. We support political reforms that would loosen the strangled hold of the major parties on our politics, such as Ranked Choice voting or Final Five voting.
