I have served on the Poudre School District (PSD) Board of Education for the past 7 years. As part of this work I found a passion for advocacy.
If elected to serve as a state representative, I understand the need to tackle the broad range of issues which face Colorado.
Education: I have a strong background understanding education issues. I will continue to fight for Colorado to fully fund our public education system so all students have the opportunity to receive an excellent education and we can adequately pay our teachers.
Healthcare: I will work to create price transparency for prescription drugs, medical services and doctor fees. These steps are key to achieving health care for all. I believe in access to quality mental health and substance abuse resources in Colorado.
Environment: I believe in taking action to mitigate climate change. I will champion the values of our citizens by advocating for clean air and clean water. I support Governor-elect Polis’ bold vision of 100% renewable energy in Colorado by 2040 and will work to beat that deadline.
Transportation: I understand the need for a multi-faceted approach to transportation challenges. I will work to implement more public transportation solutions while developing non-traditional ways of commuting. I will work to repair existing roads and bridges while adapting and creating innovative, multi-modal transit options to accommodate our growing population.
I would love to hear about what you think is important to Colorado. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at cathy@cathykipp,com or give me a call 970-219-5267. Thank you!
