Limited Government
Community Advocate
Optimize Regulation



Listen to The People

How many politicians actually listen to the people they represent? I want to have open lines of communication between the all levels of the county goverment. So many times voices are not heard because people don't know who to talk to. I want to solve that problem.

Land Rights

I believe we need someone to stand up for our rights as citizens, businesses, and property owners in this great county. I want to take back the rights we've lost to excess regulations, especially when it comes to private land rights.

Community Advocate

Often times the goverment feels like it is working against you. I want to take look at what an advocate in the government looks like, who's sole job is help you get through the regulations and not work against you.

Pro 2nd Amendment

As a Christian, I believe in the inalienable God given right to bare arms. I believe that our right to life, liberty, and happiness starts with the right to defend ourselves and our personal property.

Excess Regulation

Did you know that Teller County, as a Republican stronghold, has more strict building codes than imposed by the state? Do you know Park County does not have these regulations? I want to look at these regulations from a top down approach. Remove any regulations that are unecessary and outdated, or working against rights of The People.

Red Flag Laws

I am firm a believer in due process, innocent until proven guilty, and our rights going uninfrindged. Simply put, I do not support the Colorado "Red Flag" law and think that is infringes on the rights of law abiding citizens.

Running for Teller

Rusterholtz' Pledge

I pledge to be a commissioner for the people by listening to the voices and concerns of every citizen of Teller County, no matter how big or small. As a show of committment this solemn pledge, I am running all 570 miles of road in Teller County. I want to see Teller County up close and personal. And hopefully I might run into a few of you along the way.

Water Allocation Planning

Published 03/16/2020

Teller County must take the long view on who we will be, far into the future. Planning for Teller County over the next 50-100 years is a critical responsibility of Teller County government within the authority of the land use planning statutes. Water resource allocation must be at the forefront of those plans. Water resource allocation is not mentioned in the statutes granting counties “broad authority” over “land use” decisions, but we understand that land use generally means water and air use and vice versa.
