Addressing the Colorado common ground of wildfire, drought, and environmental health to answer President Obama’s call to take action to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
I’ve always treasured the opportunity to immerse myself in the work of building and strengthening our Party, and turning our good ideas and our core values into meaningful action. I believe in the grassroots ethic, and it’s always felt natural to focus my work on the most local level, talking, listening, and learning from the folks at the foundation of our efforts.
As I begin a quest to represent House District 2 in Colorado’s General Assembly, my approach is no different. It begins with my answering a call to service. It is fueled by a passion for Social Justice and the ongoing effort to protect Human Rights, by a sense of responsibility for my community, and by a commitment to the values I share with my fellow Democrats to work for equal opportunity and access to all aspects of our society.
From my work promoting everything from universal health care to affordable housing, from freedom from discrimination to the empowering step towards immigration reform represented in the DREAM Act, and from my longstanding passion for protecting our environment and providing a high quality of education equally available to all our youth to the hard realities of untangling TABOR, my pursuit of this House seat starts with a determination to be a voice for the isolated, unheard, and underrepresented in our society.
My character, my ethic, and my values are about giving voice to the voiceless, about being a part of a society that cares most about its least powerful and that acts first on behalf of its most vulnerable.
In these early stages of the campaign, I hope you will join me and support me as I seek to take my track record of service to the Democratic Party, my fully involved, active participation and leadership, my extensive knowledge of the issues, my valuable experience working to further our causes, and my unequivocally Progressive beliefs into the State House to represent you.
It has always been an honor to stand beside you and work with you to promote the values that make us so proud of our society – the values that make us Democrats. Now I ask you to give me the opportunity to stand up for you and to continue the work that drives us all.
House District 2
