Your Candidate

Dr. Hans Hochheimer has announced that he is running as the Republican candidate for the Colorado Senate Seat in District 14 this year. Dr. Hochheimer believes that the voters in Fort Collins want a candidate who represents the values of this community - integrity, responsibility, and freedom. He will focus on healthcare, education, and veterans issues. Hochheimer supported John Kefalas when he was first elected to the Colorado Senate Seat, but his viewpoints and what he supported after the election have prompted him to run against him now.

Hochheimer has lived in Fort Collins for 28 years with his wife, Renate. They are proud to call it their home. His wife is a retired Colorado High School and College teacher and together they raised three sons in Fort Collins. Two of them serve in the military. The oldest one is retired from active duty and now works as a civilian employee for the Department of Defense in Germany. The middle son is a neurosurgeon for the Air Force, currently serving at San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). His youngest son is an Assistant Vice President of Corporate and External Relations at Numerica Credit Union in Spokane, Washington, after having worked for FirstBank here in Colorado for a decade. Hochheimer states that one of the reasons he immigrated to America was because of the Constitution, which he says is one of the greatest documents ever written. "As an immigrant it saddens me that more and more Americans do not know anymore what treasure they have there," he remarks.

Hochheimer studied physics and mathematics at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University and received his doctoral degree from the University of Regensburg. Hochheimer began his career at Colorado State University in 1988 and was appointed and served as Chair of the Physics Department from 2005 to 2010. He is currently listed as a Professor and Chair Emeritus for Colorado State University, an Adjunct Professor of Physics at Arizona State University, and a Visiting Professor at North University of China. Before joining Colorado State University, Hochheimer worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and was head of the High Pressure Group at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany.

Hochheimer has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Little Shop of Physics. He is a lifelong learner and relishes in sharing this with others. In 2002, he was the first American scientist in 20 years who was allowed to perform research at the Bhabha Atomic Research Center in Mumbai, India. His awards and honors include a German Science Foundation fellowship at Arizona State University, and he was presented a Key to the City of Fort Collins by the former Mayor, Doug Hutchinson. He was awarded the Medal of Honor of the Rhein Main University of Applied Sciences in Ruesselsheim, Germany, and was presented a Paul Harris Fellowship from the Rotary Foundation. He has been published in numerous journals and has been a presenter at several international conferences. Dr. Hochheimer is proud to live and serve in a community that has integrity, responsibility, and freedom, pillars by which he will stand and serve.
