TRAVIS STAR NELSON FOR COLORADO SENATE DISTRICT 35
Conservative Democrat | Family Rancher | Pro-Choice Christian
November 15, 2015 was a day true profound change in my life began. This was the day I put my guns to the ground. This was the day my beautiful daughter Arizona Star was born. There is something that changes a man when you hold your newborn child for the first time.
Prior to that, it had been a rough and rowdy ride, growing up as a poor outlaw in Huerfano County, in a small town known as Gardner, Colorado.
My family lived on a small 80 acre cattle ranch known as the “Last Ditch Homestead”. We ran our cattle on foot. There was no running water. Like hundreds of other locals, we hauled our drinking water from the local Malachite Spring. We filled our pond and transferred water to a cistern for wash-water. Then, we heated it in a round tub on the woodstove.
