To give the power that was given to government at the beginning of the coronavirus, aka, the common cold, back to the People. Tyranny is coming, and neither of the two party paradigm is attempting to stop it.
Private business is private property. Let business owners operate as they see fit. All economic fallout is due to government involvement.

There isn’t just one pressing issue facing the people of Colorado, there are several, and they all need immediate attention. Which is why I won’t have just one top priority in the next legislative session, I'll have many:

1. Fixing whatever damage is still being done by the coronavirus crisis, by improving healthcare coverage and affordability, expanding small business and worker protections, and creating safer school systems for students and teachers.

2. Rebuilding a good state budget, to make up for the massive cuts we had to make this year.

3. Finding sustainable sources of funding for public education and transportation / infrastructure needs.

4. Addressing further issues of systemic racism, pushing for racial justice, equality, and equity.

5. Continuing to support environmental protections and combating climate change – which these massive wildfires prove is still an ever present and ever-growing threat.
1. By increasing education funding within the current budget, and implementing Gallagher reform for long term sustainability;

2. By increasing transportation infrastructure funding within the current budget, and TABOR reform for long term sustainability;

3. By supporting a healthcare public option available to all Coloradans, creating economies of scale to help reduce costs and improve outcomes;

4. By reducing DOC costs through criminal justice reform, utilizing rehabilitative and restorative justice practices, also providing skills training and reducing recidivism; and

5. By redirecting state economic development funds toward fostering small business sustainability through increasing access to capital and reducing regulatory barriers.
