On The Campaign Trail – June Newsletter

It’s SUMMER-TIME and our family has been spending tons of time outside. We had the enormous privilege of watching gorgeous Robin-blue eggs hatch, grow into fluffy baby birds, and fly away from the nest!

Our own kids are very much still in the nest (and now more so than before!), but we’ve recently started to feel a bit more “settled in” with the changes Covid has caused in our routines. Perhaps some of these challenges and changes are starting to feel routine for you, too?
It helps to know we aren’t alone in the struggle. We hope you and your family are well!


The Politics

There’s a lot going on, be sure to follow my social media (Twitter and Facebook) for more up-to-date political information and ways to be engaged!


COLORADO PRIMARY – 
Return your Primary ballot by June 30th!

Please vote in Colorado’s primary election for down-ballot races. It’s important to local campaigns that you mark in every choice, even if there’s no contest.
In the primary for US Senate, I’ve endorsed Andrew Romanoff, he is the candidate most qualified to handle the fast-paced, complicated issues we face today. I hope you’ll join me in voting for him.

Unaffiliated voters that receive both Democratic and Republican ballots, return ONLY ONE. 

ACTION STEP:
Message 3 Colorado friends and remind them to get their ballots in!


Black Lives Matter & Accountability for Policing

I’ve attended a number of rallies and community discussions in Colorado Springs to address police brutality and critical law enforcement reform. I’ve come to learn, from my training and experience in Public Health, how oppressed and marginalized Black and Indigenous people are (historically and very much currently), and I advocate for policies which protect their lives, livelihoods, families, and communities.

My opponent voted against SB217, a Colorado bill to address law enforcement accountability and steps to end police brutality. He was out-voted 53 to 13, showing how out of touch he is with his constituents, public health, and the issues Coloradans care about today.
