I am a documentary filmmaker and teacher. For over two decades I have recruited, trained and supported women to run for office. In my 2016 documentary film, Strong Sisters: Elected Women in Colorado, I told the unique history of women in Colorado politics.
In addition to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, I look forward to placing a priority on addressing our chronic underfunding of public education in Colorado. As a former teacher and parent of three local public school graduates I am appalled that we rank 51st in Teacher Pay and 48th in Per Pupil Funding. Our local schools are the cornerstone of our communities and are critical for providing opportunity for our future generations. If we can pass the repeal of Gallagher and continue to close corporate loopholes we can begin to direct funds to K-12 education.
Our 2020 COVID Relief Package included mental health, substance abuse and telehealth supports, small business recovery loans and grants, housing and utility assistance, and worker protections, We need to continue provide this critical foundation in order to help Colordo recover from this economic and health crisis. A lot of the decisions regarding COVID-19 are localized, I will continue to work with Tri-County Health, local school boards, county and municipal governments to follow scientifc guidance and health protocols.

The main reason that I am running is that single party rule in Colorado will result in California style socialism: poverty and homelessness for many, high taxes, loss of freedoms, over-regulation, fiscal insolvency of the State, loss of law and order and, finally, citizens moving out. Also, I know that educational opportunities are not equal across all demographics and all neighborhoods. This can be addressed effectively by a few, relatively simple revisions to the legislation that created the State Review Panel. I was a member of the Panel from inception and for 9 years though 2019. We can close achievement gaps and insure that all students have decent educations and bright futures. That won't happen with single party, Democratic rule.
At this point, we need to focus on quarantining and protecting the elderly and/or those with morbid conditions while letting businesses, churches and schools get back to normal operations. Shutting down large segments of the entire economy is exactly backwards.
