We’re facing many critical issues: COVID-19, the economic crisis, a broken healthcare system, education funding and more. But I believe if we do not address the climate crisis, all these issues will only get worse. We have to stop taking our environment for granted. Clean air and water are not unlimited resources. They’re a form of infrastructure, and when we abuse and don’t repair them, we put all our futures at risk. Investing in the environment creates a more equitable future for all of us, because environmental damage disproportionately impacts the most vulnerable among us: communities of color, the elderly, those struggling to make ends meet, and more. But I am hopeful, because we have the technology to solve this. It just requires action: at the grassroots, community, state level and beyond. Colorado has taken some positive actions, but there’s much more we can do to make our economy more vibrant, our air and water cleaner, our health better, and our communities more resilient.
COVID-19 has exposed that our economic infrastructure is fundamentally broken. We need to shore up our social safety net for those who have lost jobs, and protect the health of those who do have jobs, especially in essential services. Otherwise, both the economy and our health will suffer even more. It has also exposed holes in our healthcare system: health insurance is tied to jobs, and lack of family leave puts people’s health and jobs at risk.

This crisis represents an opportunity to invest in innovative approaches that put working families first. We can create new jobs building sustainable infrastructure that transitions communities to a clean energy future. By improving the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses, building 100% renewable electric grids, and electrifying transportation, businesses and homes, we can create long-term, sustainable middle-class jobs while addressing environmental pollution and the climate crisis.
Background I have 17 years experience in interactive multi-media information technology and networking, then 11 years in administration. I have been the director of the Liberty Road Show with the Boulder County Republicans for the last 5 years and the PCP for Precinct 215 for the last 6 years.

Audit state budget and expenditures.

I believe that the government must respect the intent of TaBOR and stop trying to circumvent the Taxpayer Bill of Rights by creating fees and fines instead of petitioning the populace for new or higher taxes. The government, just like all of us, needs to live with in its means. Our government keeps telling us that they need more money, but our taxes are a percentage so as the price of things go up, so does the revenue. There should be no need for our government to be asking for more money if they would manage what they have efficiently.
I would reduce the sales tax rate by 50% for the hospitality industry which includes (but not limited to) hotels, restaurants, and bars.
