Mayor Elizabeth Austin Endorses Scott James for CO-08

If you needed another example that Scott James is the small town’s candidate for Colorado’s 8th Congressional District, look no further than the endorsements he’s received from local leaders across the district. James’ latest endorsement comes from Mayor Elizabeth Austin of Milliken. 

In her endorsement, Mayor Austin wrote in part, “I support Scott James for the 8th Congressional District of the US House of Representatives as I believe he will represent the people with fairness and respect.  Scott’s conservative values puts focus on key issues of border safety, growing homeless population and mental health.  We cannot forget the willingness to serve and support important services such as the food banks.” 

In response to the mayor’s endorsement, Scott James released the following statement: “Having spent years working with Mayor Elizabeth Austin on the issues that support our constituencies and fight for a better future for Colorado families, I am honored to have her endorsement as I look to take these very principles to Washington. We need small town values that put fairness and respect back on the table and I’m delighted to have earned her endorsement.” 

Mayor Austin’s endorsement is just the latest endorsement from small town, sensible leaders who want to see common sense solutions from Washington that will prioritize their communities, small businesses, and families. As Scott James looks to take on Yadira Caraveo next November, it’s clear he’s doing so with the support of small town folks standing alongside him.
