Arapahoe County Republican chief Joy Hoffman and husband Jim opened their Greenwood Village home to raise funds for Candice Benge, who is the Republican candidate with her eye on Democrat Daniel Kagan’s seat.
“She’s a young, vibrant, new candidate,” said Joy Hoffman.
“This district is winnable,” said Benge. “There is much excitement and when I meet voters they also want to know my contact information for their sons and daughters to support a younger candidate. I am concerned about our state – businesses either leaving or not coming in. We need to do everything we can to bring business to Colorado and take care of our core area. This is where we should be serving – with limited government.”
Benge thanked her supporters that included many other candidates in attendance.
“I have a large family which is a built-in work force,” said the long-time resident of HD 3, who has several years experience in the construction industry.
The host committee included Andi Allott, Evie Ashmore, Karen Blilie, Candy Figa, The Hoffmans, Edie Marks, Rep. Libby Szabo, Carol Waller and Mary Wenke. Colorado’s House District 3 includes Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village, Englewood, Sheridan and parts of unincorporated Arapahoe County.
