Colorado State Representative, District 47

Brianna A. Buentello (Bri) is a wife, mother, and teacher. She is running for the Colorado House of Representatives, District 47(CO-HD47), which comprises over 2,500 square miles of Southern Colorado, because, in her own words, she’s “tired of people in Denver forgetting the state line extends past El Paso County.”

A dedicated educator, Bri holds a Bachelor of Science in History and Political Science from Northern Michigan University as well as a graduate background in Special Education, Adaptive Learning from Fort Hays State University. Currently, Bri is a teacher at Pueblo East High School where she has taught American Government, World History and Economics. In Fall 2017, she will return to the special education classroom.

A daughter of United States Marine Corps parents, Bri believes in traditional blue collar values – faith, hard work, respect and self-reliance. She’s troubled by the opportunity gaps she sees in public education, as well as what she sees as a “culture of entitlement” in today’s society. As a State Representative, Bri will fight to make sure government is providing a hand up.

Married to a former US Army captain (Nicholas) who did two tours of duty overseas, Bri has a special place in her heart for veterans and families of veterans. Given her deeply personal experience with veterans and veterans issues, Bri will be a fierce advocate for those who have served and their families.

Bri is the proud mother to her son, Noel. Bri says, “Noel is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.” Noel has some special needs, and because of the hard work and the dedication of his parents, he is thriving. This experience has had a profound impact on Bri and has made her a fighter for kids and their families.

Being a mother and educator, Buentello believes that all people deserve a chance to achieve their God given potential. As State Representative for House District 47 she will fight to make sure everyone in Southeastern Colorado has the same resources and opportunity as people in Denver. A family of faith, Bri, Nick and Noel are active members of the Holy Family Parish in Pueblo.

In her spare time Bri enjoys spending time with family and friends, working on the family home, cooking, being outdoors—hunting, fishing, off-roading, skiing and doing “the million and one things there are to do in Southern Colorado.
