Economy

The economy should work for those who work hard. Government should work for the people and create more opportunities to earn a good life. A strong economy comes from a strong and secure middle class. We need to join together with people from all walks of life to fight for our future, just like we won better wages, safer workplaces, and civil rights in our past. We need to elect qualified leaders like Emma who work for all of us. Emma will create more opportunities for everyone who lives here to have a chance to succeed and earn a good life.

Affordable Housing

Access to housing and transportation are critical to stable healthy families and stable healthy communities. We need to give all Coloradoans the opportunity to earn a good life. We need to come together like we have in our past to create lasting solutions. In Colorado, affordable housing is critical because our state has been leading the nation in annual rental rate increases. For many neighborhoods, rents have literally doubled in the past 5-6 years. Without a focus on affordable housing the developer default is luxury.

Environment

A clean environment is not only essential to our Colorado way of life, but it is critical for our health and safety. Individuals, businesses, and government all have a responsibility to protect Colorado’s environment and natural resources. Protecting our clean air and water is critical for protecting our Colorado way of life

Transportation

Access to housing and transportation are critical to stable healthy families and communities. A strong public transportation system is our best protection against congestion and the forces of growth.

Education

Education is critical to strong and healthy communities. My mother was a librarian. I know the value of not only education but literacy and access to educational resources starting at an early age. Our Colorado way of life is built around ensuring that everyone has a chance to succeed. This means that every community has good schools so that families have the opportunity to build a good life.

Public Safety

Adams County residents deserve to feel safe in their homes. Working to increase the staff of professional officers will mitigate the stress on officers, and improve the safety of our residents. It is important that local law enforcement decide how to best protect public safety and build trust with communities they serve.
