Erik Aadland

Erik Aadland


Current Position: Project Manager
Affiliation: Republican
Candidate: 2022 US Representative for District 7

Erik was born into an Army family as the son of Major General (Ret) Anders and Sandra Aadland.  Moving over 21 times, Erik graduated from High School in Heidelberg, Germany, then went on to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. Graduating in 2002 not long after 9/11, Erik was commissioned an Army officer and went on to serve with combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, during which he received two Bronze Stars (one for valor).

Aadland left the Army as a Captain in 2011 to pursue a career in the Oil and Natural Gas industry, which culminated as a Project Manager managing the onshore construction of the Leviathan Project in Dor, Israel. After leaving his company in 2020, Erik finished his Master’s degree from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Depth Psychology and chose to dedicate himself to the political arena.

With the country’s future imperiled by a corrupt establishment, Aadland once again feels called to honor his oath to defend the Constitution by running for Congress, committed to putting Colorado first.

Erik’s proudest accomplishment is his marriage of 15 years out of which he has three children (including a newborn).  He currently resides in the lovely front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and never intends to move again.

Once upon a time, people elected wise individuals who they knew would strive to do the right thing—it wasn’t about position or party; it was about the character and wisdom of the candidate and his (or her) ability to inspire others with his (or her) vision.

My will to do the best for the citizens of Colorado and our country is immovable, inalienable and uncorrupted. I will fight the battle to overcome opposition to our founding principles, no matter how daunting or insidious that may be, and we will find ways to increase opportunities and better the lives of the people of Colorado.

My personal qualities of leadership and strength of character were forged at West Point and tested on the fields of battle in Afghanistan and Iraq. With degrees in philosophy and psychology, I strive to have a deep and abiding understanding of humanity and what the human spirit yearns for. I will work with the best and brightest minds to develop sound policy to solve our greatest problems, then implement wise solutions through tireless effort and by building coalitions of like-minded leaders.

Right now, our country is in the process of being destroyed by people in positions of power based on policies and agendas that are incongruent with the values upon which this country was founded.

I will stand before you as a shield from government overreach. Enough is enough. Many politicians would rather create additional band-aids in the form of new legislation rather than rollback harmful or unconstitutional legislation. Most politicians are so invested in being re-elected and maintaining the status quo of big government, they extoll false hope based on thinly veiled intentions which only serve the select few. My solution to almost every problem is to get the Federal government out of it.

My mission is to restore the Federal government to its rightful place as outlined by the U.S. Constitution. If people were not suffocated at every turn by government overreach, they would have the time, energy, and financial resources to solve many of the problems they face themselves, in a way much more beneficial to them and their families.

Many people are distrustful of politicians because their campaign promises are empty, their moral courage is lacking, and they are not willing to stand their ground. They have been heartbroken by watching those they elected fail to honor their commitments. We truly have a crisis of broken trust. However, I will be stalwart in the face of the corrupting influences of the DC swamp. The courage and integrity I demonstrated on the battlefield will be exercised in Congress as I am committed to upholding the U.S. constitution and truly representing the fine people of Colorado as a public servant in the highest halls of power.

Together we will restore our government to one

“for the people, by the people.”
