About Alex Valdez: 

Alex was born and raised in the Denver Metro area. Alex attended CU Boulder after high school. Soon after the recession hit. 

After he lost everything, he looked forward to the future. He started up a solar business with a grassroots campaign out of a co-working space in Rino. Today, his hard work has helped that company flourish into one of Colorado’s largest solar companies. 

Alex’s call to service started in high school, as a crusader for animal shelters, working to help raise money for food and resources. Alex’s love of animals continues today. 

Alex is a lifelong Democrat, as it was the party that was inclusive of his values as an LGBTQ person of color and a believer in equal rights for all. After moving to HD5 in 2002, Alex started his service to the Party as a PCP and later a Captain for House District 5. 

As a business person and and in his lifelong community service Alex has found his calling to be in helping others achieve their full potential. He wants to continue this calling to the Colorado State House.
