Iraq War veteran, lawyer and health care executive Toren Mushovic is the Republican candidate for state House District 3, which contains just over 51,000 registered voters in Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village, Englewood, Sheridan and small portions of Littleton, Centennial and unincorporated Arapahoe County. HD 3 is quite diverse, with the largest group of voters, 37 percent, unaffiliated with any political party. Registered Democrats account for 32 percent of voters, and 29 percent identify as Republicans. Mushovic’s opponent is one-term incumbent Democrat Jeff Bridges.
Gov. Bill Owens was a special guest at a fundraiser held at the South Metro Denver Chamber at the Streets of SouthGlenn May 15 to support Mushovic’s candidacy. The event was enthusiastically hosted by local realtor Dave Schlatter, statehouse assistant minority leader Cole Wist, GV Mayor Ron Rakowsky, Arapahoe County Commissioner Jeff Baker, Arapahoe County Sheriff Dave Walcher, and leaders of business and industry. Arapahoe County Treasurer Sue Sandstrom joined the group of over 60 Mushovic supporters.
Owens told the crowd that Colorado needs young leaders like Mushovic and Wist. He said that it takes a special person to commit themselves to public service. Wist told everyone that the Republicans need four seats to regain the majority and that Mushovic is well qualified because he understands business and employs Coloradans.
Mushovic graciously thanked his supporters and told them that he is in this race to ensure that the children have an opportunity to go to good colleges, get good jobs and buy homes in Colorado. He talked about the state’s aging infrastructure that must be addressed. He wants to tackle that, and the unchecked growth that is raising the cost of living, while the transportation system struggles to keep up.
