As a mental health professional, improving behavioral health including mental health services is at the top of my agenda and it is what motivated me to run for office in the first place. It is now even more important as a result of the pandemic and increased isolation. When finding ways to improve mental health services it is important to acknowledge the systems of inequality that exist in our society. We have seen that a lack of equitable health care has resulted in communities of color suffering the impacts of the Coronavirus at a more significant level. I am committed to making sure that the voices of people from vulnerable populations, including the elderly, people with developmental and acquired disabilities, including veterans, are included in these conversations. By improving mental health services we can build a community that is more equitable, safer, and happier.
I will continue to support an economic recovery especially for small businesses and the agricultural industry. Last session, I championed bills that aim to support Coloradans during this crisis. I was a co-prime sponsor of SB20-222 a grant and loan program which is giving $20 million of COVID-19 money to small businesses with 25 or fewer employees targeting businesses that didn’t get PPE money and are women, minority, and veteran owned businesses or in rural areas. I also co-sponsored HB-1413 which is a larger loan program with $250 million available for larger small businesses. I am committed to continuing to find solutions to address the continuing economic crisis. I will listen to members of my community in order to understand where support is needed and work with them to find creative solutions to the issues they face.
