Growing up on a small farm in north Missouri, Hugh McKean had to figure out how to fix things because his family couldn’t afford to replace them.
If McKean, a Republican, defeats Democrat Jody Shadduck-McNally in the Colorado House District 51 race this November, he says he plans to bring that same common-sense mentality to the state Legislature.
“A lot of it was just intuitively figuring out how things ought to work or what might be a better solution,” McKean said. “It was common sense. It’s not that I see a ton of that lacking, I just see the potential for it to be lacking.”
