Colorado State House District 33 candidate Q&A

Why are you seeking public office?
It’s been an honor to serve the people of Broomfield, Superior and Erie over the past four years. We’ve accomplished a lot in advancing paid family and medical leave, criminal justice reform and protecting people who need unemployment insurance in an unprecedented time. We still have a lot of work to do on improving transportation and public education, and I’m excited to do it.

What will your top three priorities be if elected?
Finally funding transportation adequately, finally funding public education adequately, and implementing paid family and medical leave.

Do you support some type of public option health insurance or Medicare for All at the state level? If so, which and why? If not, why not?
I support a public option if structured responsibly, and I trust those working on it. Medicare is a federal program so can’t be implemented at the state level.

Have your views on policing and racism in Colorado changed this year? If so, how?
I learned most about the criminal justice system when I was working in it every day as a prosecutor. I’ve also done a lot of listening in the past year from folks in the community.

Do you place a greater importance on addressing climate change or preserving Colorado’s oil and gas industry? What steps would you take on these issues as a lawmaker?
I think you can be smart about both. As we actively transition to renewable energy, we still need oil and gas, which we can manage responsibly. We also need to address the global threat of climate change, where we’re far behind where we need to be.

Should Colorado consider any new gun laws? If so, which do you support?
Gun safety is an important issue that we should always have an open mind about. We haven’t stopped the epidemic of gun violence, and we shouldn’t stop working until we do.


Why are you seeking public office?
I have the passion and desire to serve my community. I will safeguard our liberties for our children and our grandchildren. I will stand up against government overreach and special interest agendas. I will faithfully support our unalienable constitutional rights. I bring voice of reason, balance, and will represent ALL the residents of House District 33.

What will your top three priorities be if elected?
My top priorities are fighting for school choice, parental choice, community safety, support for small businesses, healthcare, and transportation.

Do you support some type of public option health insurance or Medicare for All at the state level? If so, which and why? If not, why not?
I support a free market healthcare system with diverse competition that will enable going across state lines and will lower deductibles, premiums, and drug costs. A single payer healthcare system would cripple the private sector and create more dependence on the government. I support limited government and empowering people.

Have your views on policing and racism in Colorado changed this year? If so, how?
I support our law-enforcement but will not ignore injustice.
