Honestly, the America of my childhood I'm not convinced is available anymore to my own children, and that is a significant motivation to want to go out and do something better for them and rest of my neighbors in Colorado.
I didn't grow up thinking to myself, 'Someday, if I play all my cards right, I can end up in a public institution with a lower approval rating than attorneys.'
I'm happy every time I stand up in court and say, 'George Brauchler for the people of Colorado...' I take no shame in that; I take pride in that. My mom took pride in being an attorney, too.
I want to focus on crimes that affect families and not get distracted going for high-publicity cases. I want to see us move away from politics and focus more on prosecution.
