Meet Dr. Chase Kohne
I decided to run for Congress for the same reason I became a veterinarian and joined the Army—a deep lifelong desire to serve others and help them thrive.
I was born in a small farming town and raised with the rural values of hard work and integrity. My rural upbringing inspired me to become a large animal veterinarian. I own a veterinary practice in Castle Rock and I care for horses, cows, and other animals on farms throughout the Fourth Congressional District.
I joined the Army to defend the American values of freedom, equality, and justice for all. I earned the Bronze Star for my Civil Affairs service in Afghanistan, where I helped rural Afghans resist the Taliban and grow food crops instead of opium. As a veterinarian, I also helped villagers care for the sheep and goats they depend on.
I continue to serve our nation as a Major in the Army Reserve with the 440th Civil Affairs Battalion based at Fort Carson. My wife Amberlie is a registered nurse and a Captain in the Army Reserve. We are the proud parents of two daughters who inspire me every day to make Colorado a better place to live, learn, work, and visit.
Colorado's Fourth Congressional District
Spanning over 38,000 square miles and 22 counties, Colorado's Fourth Congressional District is big enough to border Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Covering nearly the entire eastern part of the state, our district covers most of the rural plains as well as parts of the Front Range.
Our district includes the towns of Castle Rock, Fort Morgan, Greeley, Limon, Longmont, Parker, and Trinidad and the counties of Adams, Arapahoe, Baca, Bent, Boulder, Cheyenne, Crowley, Douglas, Elbert, Kiowa, Kit Carson, Larimer, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Otero, Phillips, Prowers, Sedgwick, Washington, Weld, and Yuma.
