We need to get more education funding into our classrooms. Our kids deserve the best, but Colorado is falling behind. We need to make sure teachers have the resources they need and that schools have an adequate number of support staff. Not only do our kids need more teachers, they need more counselors. I've seen the physical and mental struggles that kids go through in my guardian ad litem work. Schools should be a place where they feel supported.
Our priority has to be the hardworking families of Colorado. I have heard from so many people who have been impacted by this at all income levels. We need to make sure every family is being given the opportunity to thrive. That means working hard to safely open the state up so people can get back to work, and also working to create new jobs to replace those that have permanently disappeared.

Mental Health. We see everyday in our neighborhoods and communities the devastation left by addiction, abuse, and environmental factors. At age 12, my daughter was diagnosed with a life long psychiatric condition that will require constant care and interventions. Accessing different parts of the mental health system has been frustrating to say the least. Every individual in Colorado deserves fair and adequate access to these life saving services. Let's bring stakeholders to the table to discuss reimbursement rates and qualifying mental health providers. Let's make taking care of our emotional health for ourselves and families just as important as taking care of our physical health. Often, our citizens in a mental health crisis end up in emergency rooms or in interactions with law enforcement, we can do better by creating a streamlined path to proactive treatments. Together we can end the stigma.
There is no doubt that almost everyone I know has in some way been affected by Covid-19 and the following economic shutdowns. As your Representative, I will present legislation and back policy that requires little to no fiscal note and budget allocation. Before I married my husband, I was a single mother for a short time, and forced to prioritize needs for myself and daughters. This is a moment in history when leaders in Colorado need to step up and show the people they can make those tough decisions. We have many areas that we can work to bring along free enterprise to lessen the burden on the State budget and the tax payer. Working with all sectors of our economy will be crucial to address their ongoing needs. Businesses and tax payers should be assured that in our current economic environment, their representatives should not be imposing fees or raising taxes.

Education reform. I believe education needs to get back to where the parents, teachers, and students have the say in their education not the Govt. I don't think based on where you live should dictate what school you have to attend. I don't believe education curriculum should be a 1 size fits all approach as deemed my the department of education. I think we need to get all schools more geared towards STEM type education as those areas are the future to be successful people. We need to use the funds gathered from Marijuana, lottery, and gambling tax revenue to increase school curriculum, teacher salaries, and items like that.
First we need legislation that doesn't allow the government to shut businesses down for extended periods of time. Nor fine and close businesses for defying unjust orders. We need to ensure the Colorado Department of Health is checking the states level to handle pandemic health like crisis. By requiring that they at least annually take stock of how many hospital beds, respirators, mask, our ability to test citizens.
