Right now, Garfield County is experiencing several concurrent crisis: a crisis of health with COVID-19, extremely dry and hot summers with devastating wildfires, an economic crisis of mass unemployment and the crisis of inequity in our systems of government.

All of these crises have something crucial in common. They haven’t presented us with new problems, but have exposed existing ones.

They are systemic problems, and I am proud to be fighting for systemic solutions like equitable access to small business loans, childcare policies that allow families to work and thrive while taking care of their children and an end to our economic reliance to the oil and gas industry. 

Join us. It’s time for change. Unidos podemos!

Government that works for all

I believe that we have to come together and acknowledge our different identities and experiences, so that we can create a plan for the future where everyone can thrive, not just a select few.

Conserve our natural heritage

A healthy climate is the foundation for a thriving economy. I will fight to protect our public lands, watersheds, wildlife and our conservation heritage by bringing these values into the county’s vision for the future.

Our campaign has earned the endorsement of the @COLOR Action Fund Small Donor Committee, which endorses Reproductive Justice candidates for the State Legislature. Going beyond the right to access abortion care, Reproductive Justice recognizes the right to have a child, the right not to have a child, the right to parent the children we have with dignity. As well as the right to control our birthing options, the right to choose our sexual partners, and the right to control our own gender.
