I support strengthening our public education system, including supporting early childhood education, to make sure our children get the educational opportunities they need to succeed. I also support initiatives that keep our schools safe and allow children to learn in healthy, supportive environments. A safe, high quality public education is not only our duty, it is our economic imperative. A well-educated citizenry is critical to meeting Colorado’s needs and goals for future prosperity.
Health care should be accessible and affordable. The health of our citizens is essential to the strength of our State. I believe the states, including Colorado, should work to protect its citizens against the chaotic, destabilizing policies currently being pursued in Washington, D.C.
Jobs and Economy
While Colorado may have fared better than other states since 2008, the recovery has been disproportionately slow for many. I support policies and strategies that create meaningful jobs that provide fair and equal wages. And, as a business owner, I understand the need for thoughtful legislation that facilitates and promotes the success of Colorado businesses.
Every Coloradan – regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability – is entitled to receive equal protection under the law. I support protecting the civil rights of all members of our diverse community.
