Republican congressional candidate Jan Kulmann, Mayor of Thornton and oil and gas engineer, signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a written commitment to oppose any and all tax increases.
Kulmann is running to represent Colorado’s new, highly-competitive 8th Congressional District, which includes areas in Adams, Larimer, and Weld Counties. Kulmann faces three Republicans for the nomination: state Sen. Barbara Kirkmeyer, Weld County Commissioner Lori Saine, and Army veteran Tyler Allcorn.
“Coloradans deserve outsiders who will shake things up and look out for them,” said Jan Kulmann. “That is why I am pledging to oppose any income tax increases in Congress.”
Kulmann joins two other Republican candidates and nearly 1,400 other elected officials, including state representatives to governors and US Senators, in signing the pledge.
“Career politicians like to make hollow pledges and raise taxes to grow the size of government and get more control. That’s not me,” added Kulmann. “Not only do we need to stop raising taxes, but we need to lower taxes, balance our budget, and shrink the government….”
In March, Kulmann became the first candidate to successfully petition onto the primary ballot.
The winner of the June 28th Republican primary will face the Democratic nominee, state Rep. Yadira Caraveo, in the general election.
