My name is Tonya Van Beber and I am running to fight for Weld County, our values and our conservative principles as a State Representative from House District 48. HD 48 covers over a dozen towns and municipalities across Weld County, including my home in the Eaton/Severance rural area, where my roots began.
I’m a proud third-generation Weld County native. My husband, Jeff and I have been married for 27 years and have one awesome son, Scott. I graduated from Eaton High School, went to the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and earned my bachelor’s degree in 1994. Later I earned a master’s degree from Regis University. For the last 20 years, I have been teaching leadership, American and World History to classes of all ages. In addition to teaching, Jeff and I have been blessed it build our own businesses. We have owned and operated an excavation company for 15 years and I have founded an education consulting firm ten years ago. In 2018, I was elected to the Weld County Council.
In short, I have lived, worked, and raised a family right here in Weld County over the last 40+ years and I would not have it any other way. Weld is home.
I chose to run for the seat to be a strong and effective conservative voice for Weld County at the Capitol! It has become abundantly clear that that now more than ever, the fate of our future requires citizens getting involved at every level where they can make a difference. Over the last two years on the County Council I have built a record of working tirelessly to find the facts, increase transparency, and work with others to ensure responsible government. Taking that same approach to the State Capitol is vital to preserve the way of life we hold dear.
As your state representative I will meet with and advocate for all of you, business owners, farmers & ranchers, families and everybody in between. I will protect the interests of Weld County in the face of so much overreach by Denver and Boulder. I will fight for our God-given rights whether they are property, water, personal, or constitutional! Especially our second amendment rights!
Make no mistake, we are in the midst of a battle between urban and rural Colorado and we must stand firm for what we believe in. Limited government, free markets, and free people!
Weld County citizens deserve an elected official who works for them, not for any special interest group with an agenda. Someone that has been with them, through both boom & bust, and somebody that understands the history of we have gotten to where we are now, I am the ONLY candidate in this race that fits that criteria.
I am Tonya Van Beber and I am humbly asking for your vote in the upcoming June Republican Primary election. I appreciate your time and your part in protecting our republic. We are Weld!
