What is your number one priority and why?
How will you address the economic crisis that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic?
I grew up in Steamboat and now live in Avon. I am also a Deputy District Attorney for Eagle County. I have had the honor of serving Eagle and Routt County at the State House for the last three years and focus on health care costs, protecting natural resources, cost-of-living, and many other issues.
My number one priority is addressing the increasing cost-of-living in Colorado. This includes the skyrocketing cost of health insurance and prescription drugs, the lack of affordable housing, expensive child care, and not enough high-quality, good-paying jobs. My record over the last three years serving as this district's representative shows my commitment to working across the aisle to find solutions to these issues. I passed the first-in-the-nation cap on the cost of insulin and continue to fight for prescription drug price transparency. I was the lead sponsor on the bipartisan bill that set in place the process for creating a public health insurance option in Colorado and look forward to fully implementing that in the 2021 session so that Coloradans can have a new, lower-cost, health insurance option. Additionally, I helped pass the largest investment in affordable housing in recent history. I look forward to continuing my work in the coming years on these important issues.
Addressing the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic will be some of the most important work we do at the legislature in the coming years. I actually started working on this almost as soon as the stay-at-home orders began by being appointed to the Governor's Economic Stabilization Council where I worked with business leaders from across the state to craft legislative solutions to help businesses and workers. When we resumed the legislative session in 2020, I was a lead sponsor on a bill to give property tax relief to businesses and one that helped restaurants increase their revenue. When we return to the legislature in 2021, I will work with my colleagues to pass legislation that will help businesses re-open (particularly in rural Colorado), help workers regain employment, and to help our tourism economy recover swiftly. While this pandemic has been devastating, it is also an opportunity to rebuild our economy and we should work hard at the legislature to help make that happen.
