Getting government out of our lives. Government wants to totally control all aspects of peoples lives. They exacerbated the current pandemic forcing illegal lockdowns and executive orders from the governor. The CO state government has passed legislation that denies us our Constitutional guaranteed pre-existing right to self defense.
We need to immediately cut all government spending, reduce regulations by 50%, cut taxes across the board by the same amount, and eliminate most of the useless state departments.

I’m running to ensure that whether you are a new immigrant or a fifth-generation Coloradan, you are given an equal opportunity to succeed in life. This means fighting at the State House for policies that expand quality of life for our residents. We must expand apprenticeships, vocational training and continued access to education. One of my primary focuses must be affordable and attainable housing. Transparency and accountability in legislation and politics is critical to restoring faith in our government, and those elected to serve the people. As an accountant, cutting inefficiency and abuses will be at the forefront of my work. I will combine my education and professional experience to help ensure Colorado continues to be a state that operates by and for the people.
We need to remove whatever is waste in the budget due to the continuous need to spend whatever is budgeted. I would look at the early release of nonviolent criminals to community corrections with stringent oversight. The transition to a green economy built on the fuels of the future is another requirement that can be driven by tax incentives. Colorado has been one of the top business markets in the country for several years, but the cost of doing business has increased tremendously. The federal government has created a system that favors large corporations. Here in Colorado, we need an advocate for small local businesses as well as someone who will commit to supporting minority & women-owned businesses. As a minority business woman I will be that champion. We are at the cusp of a new economic era that will end the age of fossil fuel. This situation may have made this occur faster.
