Kevin Grantham represents Colorado State Senate District 2 which includes: Clear Creek, Park, Teller, Fremont, and parts of El Paso County. He serves as the Senate Minority Whip who is in charge of coordinating the Republican Caucus in its response to legislation and other matters.
A husband and father of two, a small businessman, an elected representative - these are a few experiences that have so far shaped the life of Kevin Grantham. The youngest of five children, Kevin grew up in the rural farming community of Crowley County in southeastern Colorado that was and still is characterized by good, honest people, who have endured all manner of hardships. It is here that Kevin was raised by loving parents who instilled early on the importance of honesty, integrity, and faith in God. He built on those foundations over the next few years of college and the beginnings of his career.
Kevin and his family moved to Cañon City in 1998, and since he has become increasingly active in the community, include volunteering at a local shelter and serving in such organizations as the Lions Club International and Gideons International, holding several local offices and positions. He also held a state office with the Gideons from 2007-2009.
In August of 2005 Kevin had the honor of being appointed by the city council to the Cañon City Board of Adjustments. In 2007 he was elected by his fellow board members to serve as chair for the committee. In that same year Kevin threw his hat into the ring for one of the two At-Large seats which were open on the Cañon City Council.
Kevin was elected in November of 2007 and presently serves on the council. During that time, he has had the privilege to sit on several mayoral appointed committees of the council including the General Government committee and the Contract Committee, as well as serving as the council representative to the GIS Board in Fremont County. Also, in 2007 Kevin was elected to serve as the Chairman of the Fremont County Republican Central Committee and was recently reelected to that position in 2009.
Kevin is a 1992 graduate of Liberty University (B.A.) in Lynchburg, Virginia and a 2009 graduate of the Leadership Program of the Rockies. Over the course of his life he has been a hog farmer, sports reporter, onion processing plant employee, highway construction crew worker, restaurant manager, real estate broker, and appraiser among other things. Kevin lives in Canon City, with his wife Caroline, and their two children Raychel and Justin.
Kevin believes that every Coloradoan, and every American, wants to make a life for themselves and their families, and that’s why liberty matters so much. He is motivated to work for a Colorado that’s prosperous with jobs and business, where everyone has equal opportunity, and the liberty to live their life as they believe best. Kevin Grantham has unyielding faith in the power of freedom and principle. He believes in the bedrock principles laid down for us by the Founding Fathers - principles such as the rule of law, personal responsibility, private property rights, fiscal restraint, laissez-faire capitalism, and the right to keep and bear arms.
