State Representative Clarice Navarro was elected in November 2012, and she is currently serving her second term in the Colorado State Legislature for House District 47 (Fremont, Pueblo, Otero counties).  State Representative Clarice Navarro is a small business owner, conservative activist, State Legislator, wife and mother of two daughters.  The Representative and her family currently reside in beautiful Pueblo, Colorado.

Representative Navarro was raised by a single mother in the heart of Southeastern Colorado.  Growing up her mom taught her about the value of a hard day's work, the significance of a dollar, responsibility, and the necessity to give back to the community.  Today she is committed to instilling these values in her daughters, to ensure that they grow up to be civic leaders.

Starting from a young age, Clarice worked at her grandma's restaurant in various positions and learned what it takes to run and work in a small business.  In her adulthood she has worked as an educator for the Colorado Department of Corrections and Las Animas High School and the Rural Development Division of the United States Department of Agriculture.  She has also been a community leader in several positions; she has served on the Las Animas City Council, Kountry Kids Advisory Board of Directors and was appointed by Chief Justice Mullarkey to the 16th Judicial Review Committee.  Currently, Clarice serves on the Colorado Board of Directors for the Women in Government organization, and also is a Behavioral Health Caucus Chair for the Colorado Behavioral Health Council.  Within the legislature, Representative Navarro serves on the Local Government Committee and Business Affairs and Labor Committee, both of which she is very passionate about.

Clarice has a great deal of experience in the political arena.  Her life in politics includes working with State Senator Ken Kester, Secretary of State Donetta Davidson, Congressman Bob Schaffer, Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, and Congressman Scott Tipton.

State Representative Navarro was recently named as one of the “TOP 10 UNDER 40” by the American Conservative Union, “One to Watch” by ColoradoPeakPolitcs, and as an “Emerging Leader” by GOPAC.
