What makes you the best choice for this office?

I represent the balanced moderate voice for our community. The demographics have changed here tremendously due to the growth of our population in HD-44. There are now far more Independents and Democrats than Republican conservatives. I listen to all sides and will work with colleagues irrespective of their party affiliation to pass common-sense legislation that is in the best interest of our constituents.

If you're elected, what is one single issue that will be at the top of your agenda?

Helping Colorado citizens rebound from the economic and social pressures placed on both our state and our people due to COVID-19. The state now has budget deficits of over $3 billion. This impacts our programs that relate to education, transportation, health care, public safety and the environment. Everything has been impacted. We will have to make hard decisions on how to balance spending to meet the needs of our citizens, our schools and our local businesses in a way that is fiscally responsible.

If you're elected, what must you accomplish in order for you to consider your term a success?

That I have helped to improve the lives of people in our state, improved our educational system and made Colorado a safer place to live.

In your eyes, what issues do you hear constituents care about most?

Improving our K-12 schools, a healthy environment and accessible, quality health care. These are all issues that I hope to make progress on.

Why are you seeking this office?

I feel we need representation that is more balanced and reflects the desires of our community, which is moderate. I am also a mother of three children ages 12, 19 and 20, and I'm concerned about their future, as well as our community. In my outreach work with BridgeHouse Ready for Work, Habitat for Humanity, my local church and local schools, I have direct experience of the diverse needs in our community. Lastly, I believe my approach would better reflect the desires of HD-44 residents than the current incumbent. Now is not the time for ultra-left progressiveness or ultra-right conservatism.
