Republican Party (previous)
Bennett Rutledge is an IT professional and accountant from Centennial, Colorado. He is the current Treasurer for the Libertarian Party of Arapahoe County.
Rutledge began his political life as a Republican, back in the days of Eisenhower and Goldwater. He even became an officer in the Teen Age Republican Club at his high school. The first schism came when Bennett ran for delegate to the Republican Convention on an anti-Nixon platform, primarily because he had not ended the Draft as promised. Bennett received 26 votes.
Then he went away to college at the University of Arizona, where he discovered to his shock that he was a flaming liberal. The Nolan diagram (used today as the "World's Smallest Political Quiz") was the piece Mr. Rutledge needed to see the real picture.
In 2017, Rutledge ran for District 2 of the Centennial City Council.
