What is your number one priority and why?
How will you address the economic crisis that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic?
My number one priority is to mitigate the effects of human caused climate change. We must reverse the course we are on and scale down our greenhouse gas emissions as fast as possible. We have a moral obligation and responsibility to act now for ourselves and the generations of humans to follow us. This issue touches every other issue that we need to work on and is literally the over arching challenge under which that every other challenge lies. Climate change affects our ability to feed the world - we must focus on supporting sustainable farming practices. Climate change affects our health, and affects those in under-served and communities of color disproportionately. We must recognize this and seek to address this imbalance. Climate change affects our coastal communities with sea levels rising and unhealthy ocean ecosystems. We must plan for the reality of mass migration of people across our country and the world and be ready for this ahead of time and not wait until it is too late.
We will have to be bold to make sure we address those that are in danger of losing their housing and health care due to this crisis. We will have to build social safety nets that work. Tough decisions are ahead on funding here in our state. I will push for ways to repeal TABOR and the constraints it has on our state's ability to solve problems. We will need to be innovative in our solutions. Combining on my number one priority above, I would like to push for a price on carbon here in Colorado. Pricing the cost of fossil based fuels fairly by putting a fee on carbon at the source, will allow us to create a fund that can then be used as a dividend to return to the people of Colorado to help with monthly income. This will also push our economy to move in a more equitable way toward more renewable energy sourcing for our residents. A green economy will create new jobs and opportunities for those that need to transition to a new career.
