Meet Lt Governor Candidate Darryl Gibbs
My family is from Illinois and Louisiana. I moved to Colorado in 1995, and I loved it so much that I decided to stay put.
Resiliency and integrity have been in my blood for many generations. My grandmother was a feisty, determined, hard-headed woman. She never gave up (she even carried a 38 in her pocketbook). My grandmother had 25 children. She did whatever it took to take care of her family, from cleaning houses to picking cotton. She was a strong woman, who lived to the graceful age of 104. My mom is a hard-working, ambitious, independent woman. After serving her country in the Women’s Army Corps (WAC), she came home and worked two jobs to support her family as a single mother. She did whatever it took to keep food on the table and keep the family safe. From these two women, I have learned all the life skills that I need.
While I am currently serving as a C-130 Crew Chief in the Air Force Reserves, I have been in the military for almost 20 years now. I have also served in the Denver Police Department. I also have over 40 years in the trucking industry, and am currently an owner/operator trucker driver, managing and running my own trucking company.
I am no career politician. I have a unique background that has given me a wealth of experience. My military and police background has provided me with some key skills that would directly apply to my position as Governor. I am level-headed. I can deal with any situation calmly and coolly, and with a clear head – so that I can properly address it and arrive at the best resolution. I am always courteous and professional. I possess the ability to respectfully converse with anybody and arrive at a common solution. I am also aware of, educated on, and concerned about, current political issues. My trucking background has given me experience with budgets, forecasting, finance, and logistics.
I am running for Lieutenant Governor alongside Danielle Neuschwanger because I’m tired of watching the state that I love get slowly run into the ground due to bad policies and a lack of common sense.
I’m no longer willing to sit back and criticize the latest local news from my couch. I know what hard work is, and I know what integrity is. I know about policies, laws, and processes. I know about running a business and having a budget. Through my military career, I know about making critical and time sensitive decisions, and I know about discipline and integrity. I know about being a parent and wanting what’s best for your children.
“I also know about being a Colorado citizen, and wanting what’s best for the state that you love.”
I’m not here to make a name for myself. I’m here to make a difference. A real difference. Holding a public office position such as Lieutenant Governor is one of the greatest duties you can do to serve your country (and state). This position holds a lot of responsibility – but that is the reason why I am seeking the position of Governor. I don’t want to just make a positive difference at the city level.
I want to make a positive difference for the entire state of Colorado. I’m here to be that person that will take a stand for every Colorado citizen.
I stand for the flag, the National Anthem, and Colorado citizens from all four corners of the state. But I only kneel for God.
