About Perry Will

I am a true native Coloradan and bring a perspective that is much needed in the General Assembly. I believe in personal responsibility, free enterprise, and smaller government with less regulation and red tape. I will continue to champion rural Colorado in an urban dominated Legislature and represent our rural and western slope values and way of life for our future and our children’s future by protecting our heritage.

I promise you honest, strong, determined and principled leadership. It is a privilege and honor to serve the great people of House District 57. I respectfully ask for your vote on November 8th.

A Champion for Rural Healthcare

According to a 2020 report from the Center for Improving Value in Healthcare, residents of HD57 are paying over $3000 a year more annually than Denver area residents for the same health coverage, the most expensive healthcare costs in the country. 
Perry Will has proven to be an effective bipartisan leader when working to find solutions to lower costs and increase healthcare quality and access for rural Colorado. 

Perry has passed legislation to address some of our most pressing healthcare needs including:

★ Increased access to mental health services 

 Lowering the cost of prescription drugs

★ Coverage for family planning services

★ Ease of access to health coverage enrollment

★ Providing tax credits to address professional shortages

★ Expanded coverage for telehealth services 

★ Coverage for colorectal cancer screening

Unmatched Expertise on Water, Wildlife, and Environmental Stewardship 

Perry Will understands that Agricultural and Western Heritage of this region can only be served by someone who has truly lived them. Perry spent over 40 years serving rural and Western Colorado as a Parks and Wildlife Game Warden, and understands firsthand just how important water preservation, environmental stewardship, and attainable housing are to the livelihoods of Western Coloradoans. 

In a legislature dominated by the needs of Denver and the Front Range, Perry provides unmatched expertise on rural issues that are otherwise ignored. He advocates for policies that bring small businesses and economic vitality to rural communities, all while protecting our small communities from burdensome regulations and over-taxation.

Vagneur: We have a friend in the Colorado House with Perry Will

I’d done it before — call the DOW (Department of Wildlife, now morphed into Colorado Parks and Wildlife CPW), tell ‘em I needed some certified weed-free hay, and the guy on the other end saying, “Take what you need, and leave a check in the tractor in the hay shed.” How hard is that?
