Karen Griego, City of Trinidad Council Member

I have had the honor of working with Carlos as a fellow city council member for two years.  During that time I found Carlos to be very diligent in performing his duties on city council.  He has a high level of integrity in all of his business dealings. He is a very compassionate young man with limitless energy and desire to serve the youth of this community thru his efforts with Trinidad Youth Club. I have no reservations in my endorsement of Carlos Lopez for Senate District #35. 



I am Anthony Mattie, a life-long resident of Las Animas County, a retired Colorado State Patrol sergeant, and a seated member of the governing council for the city of Trinidad.

I have known Mr. Lopez and his family for many years. We served together on city council, where I was given direct opportunity to observe him in action as an advocate of those he represented.

I saw his enthusiasm as he tackled the complex business of city governance and the myriad issues that crossed the dais.  He was a responsible steward of the taxpayer’s dollars, all the while ambitiously directing our efforts to resolve our community’s many pressing needs.  He primarily spearheaded the development of the Trinidad Youth Club and he was an active advocate of the community’s homeless population.  His experience as a businessman served us well in our efforts at economic development.

Mr. Lopez was adept at maintaining a positive work relationship with everyone.  While he was committed to his personal beliefs, he was as open minded and receptive of the ideas of others.  Mr. Lopez always prepared himself for formal action by researching and learning about the topics at hand.

Without reservation, I am confident in his leadership abilities, motivation, and personal skills.

Therefore, I endorse Carlos Lopez as a candidate for the office of Colorado State Senator representing Senate District 35 and encourage you to learn more about him and support his candidacy.
