What makes you the best choice for this office?
House District 34 is where I was born and raised, it's where my roots are. I served on Northglenn City Council for four years and fought for my community and I want to take that same fight to the Capitol. I am also a nurse and will be the only nurse serving at the Capitol and I believe this will be a valuable perspective to have when addressing Colorado's healthcare issues.
What can the Legislature do to ease the strain of rising housing prices on Colorado residents?
We must increase vocational training programs because the shortage of skilled laborers has increased the cost of housing. As a state legislator, we need to work with local governments and organizations like CHFA to fund programs to ensure affordable housing is attainable. Lastly, I want to work with our businesses to make sure they can pay their employees a livable wage as wages have not kept up with the increase in the cost of living.
What can be done to ensure the state's transportation system will be able to accommodate continued population growth?
We need to invest in our infrastructure and make sure projects with good paying jobs employ members of our community and not people out of state. We also must continue to focus on mass transit opportunities. To accomplish this, we need to ensure that we have buy-in from local stakeholders and I am committed to helping facilitate that. I will work with you to make sure House District 34 gets our share of transportation investment.
What two issues demand more attention in the upcoming Legislative session than they received in the previous one, and why?
We need to make sure our schools are funded and that our teachers are paid a fair wage. A child's quality of education should not be determined by their zip code. We also need to make sure families are able to earn a livable wage so that they can keep a roof over their head and food on the table. Our economy needs to work for all of us and not a select few.
If elected, what must you accomplish in order for you to consider your term a success?
Passing policy that will make life easier for everyday people is how I am going to define my success. I want to attract good paying jobs to this state. We need to fund our education system at a level where our students have the resources they need and our teachers are paid enough that they don't need a second job to survive. Lastly, ensuring every member of our community has access to high-quality affordable healthcare.
