Local Legislator Town Hall – Old Town Library, Saturday, January 11th 10:00-11:30 am. Please join Senator Ginal, Representative Arndt, and myself as the 2020 legislative session kicks off. Learn about the bills we’re working on and ask questions about what the legislative session may have in store.
Local Legislator Issue Forum: Road map to the 2020 Local, State, and Federal Election – Old Town Library, Saturday, January 25th 10:00-11:30 am. It’s almost 2020 and the process of determining which candidates and what ballot issues you will be voting on in November has already begun. Senator Ginal, Representative Arndt and I thought our first issue forum should walk you through the complicated election year to come and let you know how you can participate in our democracy. We’ll be talking caucuses, assemblies, primaries, and more. Our expert panel includes:
Gil Barela, the Chair of the Larimer County Democrats
Gino Campana, Chair of the Larimer County Republicans
Angela Myers, Larimer County Clerk and Recorder
I served on the Poudre School District (PSD) Board of Education for 7 years. As part of this work, I found a passion for advocacy.
I am continuing this passion as a member of the Colorado General Assembly, working on the issues that face all Coloradoans. I am proud to have served in the Colorado General Assembly in our Historic 2019 Legislative session.
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 doctors’ 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call 970-219-5267. Thank you!
