From The Campaign Trail
My history in Colorado and Aurora runs deep. From my first days in Colorado Springs, while my Dad served in the military at Fort Carson, to my position in higher education at the University of Northern Colorado, to various leadership roles in Human Resources/Training at United Airlines, to the President of a non-profit in the honor of my beloved son, to my current public service as State Representative; I have always been proud to call Colorado my home. As a legislator, I have a proven track record of bringing smart, innovative and effective approaches to public policy. I believe deeply in strengthening our schools, promoting safer communities, protecting equal rights, forwarding economic security, and ensuring access to affordable housing and healthcare for all Coloradans.
I will be a strong and effective voice for Coloradans on these issues as well as the many others that impact our State in the Senate. I will fight to create an economy that works for everyone and not just those at the very top, because our businesses and families succeed when we have a strong middle class. I will work to ensure our kids get a quality K-12 education, have increased opportunities in our technical schools, and a chance to go to college without being burdened by debt when they graduate. I will fight relentlessly to protect our air, water, and the many places that make our state so beautiful and unique. I will be an advocate and outspoken champion for our immigrant communities, veterans, and seniors.
Your support has been crucial every step of the way, and I ask for your continued support on this journey to the Colorado State Senate. With your help, I promise to be a champion for hard working people. Together, we can ensure that those who work hard and play by the rules have the ability to provide their children with the opportunities they deserve, and retire with security and dignity.
