MEET GREG LOPEZ
NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Greg Lopez’s life is the tale of a hard-working American family of Mexican descent that pursued the American Dream. I come from humble beginnings, my father had a six-grade education and never truly learned how to read and write, my mother has a tenth-grade education. Greg joined the US Air Force at the age of 17 where he served for 4 years (1983-1987). During his military service, he met Lisa Garcia, and upon completion of his military term in 1987, they were married in 1988 and moved to Colorado. Currently, Greg and Lisa Lopez live in Elizabeth, Colorado. They have two grown and married children.
Greg and Lisa have been married for 33 years. When you see both of them together, you get the sense they are an unstoppable team. No one can deny strong values lead to healthier, more prosperous families. As parents, they believe it is the responsibility of the father and mother to teach the children strong moral values. Greg comes from a humble background and understands how families struggle. Greg believes parents make the best decisions for their children.
WHAT THIS CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT
It’s time to change the narrative of who we are and whom we fight for. It is time for a new face, a new voice one that speaks from the heart about our life-empowering values.
Our path to victory is simple, we must attract 18% more Hispanics and Unaffiliated voters to win in the 2022 General Election. As a party, we must select the candidate best suited to attract Hispanics and Unaffiliated voters.
The values of the Hispanic community are conservative, I know how to communicate, engage with and win the Hispanic vote.
I am one of them.
Unaffiliated voters want a strong leader, one that can solve problems with compassion and empathy. Someone who truly cares about people.
