A look at the Republican primary for the House District 22 seat

Justin Everett will square off against incumbent Colin Larson

Posted

The vote to represent the Republican Party in the election for the House District 22 seat in the Colorado House of Representatives is only days away.

Justin Everett, a Littleton Republican, is challenging Colin Larson, another Littleton Republican who currently holds the House District 22 seat, in the upcoming June 30 primary election. District 22 includes parts of Littleton, Lakewood and Ken Caryl.

Larson took control of the office in 2019 while Everett represented District 22 in the Colorado House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. Everett lost in the Republican primary for Colorado treasurer in 2018 to Brian Watson.

The winner of the two will face Democrat Mary Parker for the House District 22 seat this Fall.

Though both candidates did not reply to Colorado Community Media’s candidate questionnaire, here is some basic information about Everett and Larson.

Justin Everett

Everett has lived in Jefferson County since 1978 and earned an MBA in finance, entrepreneurship and international business from the University of Colorado Denver and a JD from the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver.

Before he held a seat in the Colorado House of Representatives, Everett owned a business in South Jeffco that specialized in business start-up, investment management and financial management, his website says.

Everett’s website says he is a Christian and his faith guides the way he votes. He is pro-life and has co-sponsored bills to protect unborn children. His website says business owners should be able to establish their own rules related to COVID-19 if necessary and that citizens can assess risks when using those businesses. Everett is against illegal immigration and sanctuary cities and says illegal immigration’s cost to taxpayers is too much.

Colin Larson

A graduate from Littleton High School and Colorado College where he earned a degree in political science and history, Larson is the owner of the Altas Coffees coffee shop.

Larson’s website says he is a part of numerous boards and organizations like the West Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Jefferson County Community Development Advisory Board.

His website says he is focused on strengthening Colorado education, defending the Second Amendment and defending the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. Larson is also pro-life and says he opposes Obamacare and socialized medicine.
