My number one priority is working on legislation to provide economic stability, dignity and recovery to Colorado citizens. I am a mother and a teacher in a middle-class working family. My family understands economic hardships. With uncertainty in these indeterminate times we need smart, qualified, compassionate leadership. I am a leader that will put the needs of working families and our most vulnerable first. All people deserve the capacity to care for their family without economic deprivation. They deserve a living wage, paid family leave, and worker protections. Gene Sperling writes about economic dignity. My own money journey has led me to learn about and understand the policies we need to help people be successful. I am working on initiative #271 that will bring in more revenue through a fair tax system for Colorado. The goal of economic policy is about protecting what matters most in people's lives.
The Covid-19 crisis has left our state with a budget shortfall. Many hard decisions had to be made in this session. Those cuts and hard decisions are going to continue to be made in future years. The people making the decisions on what programs to fund and what needs to go will make them based on their values and what they deem important. We need leaders that represent the people. We need leaders that care about how those decisions impact the lives of our citizens. I am a leader that cares. I care about children, education, worker rights, women’s rights, our environment, and helping ALL people get the things they need to be happy, healthy, and live their best lives. I will address the economic crisis with smart decisions and compassionate leadership. We need to be able to work cooperatively, and collaboratively toward solutions that help people. Listening to the needs and concerns of constituents is the best practice. I will be a leader that listens, learns, and works hard for you.
