David Ortiz

Colorado House of Representatives, District 38

David was the first bisexual man elected to the Colorado General Assembly!


David Ortiz is a wounded veteran and lifelong public servant. He is a third-generation US Service Member on his dad’s side and first-generation American on his mom’s side. He began serving others by resettling evacuees after Hurricane Katrina. He continued his service by flying helicopters for the US Army. While deployed to Afghanistan, he survived a catastrophic crash that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Because he had access to quality and affordable healthcare, he regained his independence and continued serving in the nonprofit space and as a lobbyist for veterans at the State Capitol in Denver, CO. As Colorado and our nation are going through difficult times and we need leaders that have lived through injustices and struggles. We need leaders that know how to tenaciously fight and empower a community so together we emerge stronger and more united.
