The Issues

THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM HAS FAILED YOU

After decades of representation by the two major parties, we must begin to ask ourselves, “Who has Colorado been changing for?”
Every day it gets harder for working people of my generation to start our lives. Our incomes stay flat as our rents skyrocket, our healthcare costs more and covers less, and we struggle to find meaningful jobs in a changed economy. It’s clear our two major parties have made these changes, not for us, but for their donors at the top. It is up to this generation to leave this place in better shape then when we received it. In a legislature where the average Senator is 58 years old we have to realize if we’re not at the table then we’re on the menu.
Now is the time for fresh faces and bold ideas. It’s time to fight for a Denver that working people can afford again. I will work to usher in a new era of equity, invest in our crumbling infrastructure, and to make sure Coloradans can always afford to live here. I also promise to have the courage to NEVER take a dime from any special interests. Only when our leaders reject all special interests will we regain control of our democracy and stop the distribution of wealth from the many to the few.

Native Motives… Millennial Mindset.

I am asking for your vote to be your State Senator from District 32 because I have more passion, energy, and clarity then any other candidate in this election. It is my life’s goal to build a foundation for Colorado that will stand strong for my grandchildren’s grandchildren.

Over the last 20 years I have watched my home state’s infrastructure crumble, our campaign finance system rot to the core, and our cost of living skyrocket. My generation must be the generation to clean up this mess before it is too late.

I’m an activist, a University of Colorado graduate, I’ve protested, I’ve worked for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, I’ve hit the pavement for what I believe in. But the reason to elect me now is because we are in uncertain times, and only those that reject corruption and have the courage to stand up for the middle class belong in this office. The only thing clear is partisan, establishment politicians from both parties have neglected our infrastructure, corrupted our campaign finance system, and are now letting the growth in Colorado spiral out of control.
