Steve is running for governor because the Colorado way of life matters to him and his family. He is optimistic that we can use technology and innovation to do more with Colorado’s natural advantages for more jobs, better schools, and affordable health care. He has a plan to decrease our public debt, make the state financially independent, and give citizens a reason to trust government and their elected leaders.
Steve House says he became a conservative the day he was born on a small farm in Michigan. He grew up sharing a house with nine people and learned very quickly about the value of a dollar and taking personal responsibility for your own life.
Steve has worked in the healthcare industry for more than 30 years with companies such as Phillips Medical Systems, GE Healthcare, and Aetna. In his various roles, he has been accountable for hundreds of employees in several departments and has managed budgets in excess of $200 million.
