My number one priority is school funding. Right now our districts are functioning on the bare minimum. Not only do teachers need raises but so do the support staff. How we go about funding the schools is a project for the State Legislature. I would like to see the Marijuana Bill rewritten so that the taxes would be funneled directly to the school districts to be spent how they decide. As the current law is written, school districts can only request money for new buildings. It would be nice if they could use that money to renovate their current buildings. Money could be used for raises, equipment in the schools, new buses, etc.
I would encourage Governor Polis to drop the mask mandate and let businesses reopen. The best way to better the economy is to let the economy run. Let businesses decide whether they require masks in their establishment or not. Some businesses have gotten creative in the way they run business in order to make money. They aren't making as much though as they would if they were open.

My number one priority is supporting Colorado’s children and families to thrive and reach their full potential. Healthcare and public education are two areas I want to focus attention on improving. At this time in Colorado, families face more barriers than support. We need legislators who prioritize health and healthcare, education and opportunity, and protecting the environment and communities that hard-working Coloradans love and value. I’ve dedicated my career to helping families access resources, build upon their strengths, and break down barriers – now we can make a greater impact for more Coloradans by electing a Champion for families and children to our State Senate.
Investing in our people is what the Government is meant to do, especially in times of crisis. I support legislation and policy which strengthens our communities and invests in Coloradans and our future; policy such as protections for affordable housing, food access, healthcare access and jobs, and access to rapid-testing as a way to return to more normal operations (for example in schools and healthcare facilities). We also need to support and protect small businesses, since they employ the majority of Coloradans and residents in SD10. Additionally, I supported Fair Tax Colorado, an initiative to bring Colorado in line with most of the country with income tax brackets (Colorado currently has a flat income tax rate for all income amounts). Taxing income higher than $250,000 a year will secure new funds for education and essential infrastructure projects that Coloradans need.
