If elected, what would be your priorities?

The first priority is to respond to the current public health, financial and social crises and to continue to pass legislation to improve the quality of life for all Coloradans, including working families, children, seniors and all who are underrepresented in our community. We need to help our small businesses with grants and more stimulus dollars (with help from our federal government). I will also continue to address the high costs of health care and more transparency in prescription medications and health insurance.

COVID-19 has led to increased isolation and an uptick in depression, domestic abuse and suicides. We need to focus on getting people the mental health help they need. Other priorities include protecting our environment and upholding our commitment for P-12 funding and post-secondary education.

What are your thoughts on how the COVID-19 pandemic has been addressed by the county and the state? Would you propose doing anything differently?
