What makes you the best choice for this office?
I am the Right Kombo for House District 45 because I believe in putting people of party and working together for a better Colorado for all.
What can the Legislature do to ease the strain of rising housing prices on Colorado residents?
Affordable housing is a critical issue in our state and needs to be addressed immediately. However, it is important to consider need according the region, population, and projected growth of the area. I believe empowering counties and cities to appropriately address affordable housing would be the most effective as well as increasing funding for housing assistance programs statewide.
What can be done to ensure the state's transportation system will be able to accommodate continued population growth?
It has been proven that giving people access to alternative and affordable options for transportation will decrease the number cars on the road and subsequently the impact on the environment as it relates to air and noise pollution. Incentivizing small and large businesses who provide light rail and bus passes for low costs to employees and investing in alternative transportation in suburban and rural areas would improve the quality of life for all Coloradans.
What two issues demand more attention in the upcoming Legislative session than they received in the previous one?
Red Flag Bill: It is no longer possible to ignore the issue of gun violence. Something must be done to keep our communities and law enforcement officers safe. This is about protecting people from senseless acts of violence, not politics. Health care reform: Healthcare affects everyone therefore it is imperative that all Coloradans have access to quality affordable healthcare. This can be accomplished by requiring transparency from payors, eliminating waste, standardizing processes and negotiating a better deal for government mandated coverage in our state.
If elected, what must you accomplish in order for you to consider your term a success?
Setting up a future for affordable health care that is quality driven and accessible to all Coloradans would be a major achievement in my book!
