What makes you the best choice for this office?

My experience in local government taught me how to bring people together to solve problems on tough issues. I've brought that knowledge with me to the State Capital and have reached across the isle to pass good legislation. And I understand the challenges facing working Coloradans and their families. I have dedicated my service to fighting for our values in the Colorado State House.

If elected, what would your top issue be?

Domestic Violence, Gun Safety, Animal Welfare.

If elected, what would you want to accomplish in order for you to consider the term a success?

In the last two years that I have served as the State Representative for House District 24 I have sponsored legislation around economic justice, health care costs and access, housing, environmental/racial justice, reproductive freedoms, closing domestic violence loopholes, animal welfare protections. and much more. I would want to continue my work on all these issues.

Your view on efforts to change TABOR?

I support Tabor reform. Because of Tabor limits Colorado is missing out on opportunities to invest in our kids, families, infrastructure, and much more. Our economy and times have changed in the last 20 years and Coloradans deserve to have the chains of Tabor removed.

The Red Flag law went into effect this year. Has it been a good law, and would you change anything?

Data shows that that the Red Flag Law is working as it was intended, protecting our most vulnerable.
