Thank you very much for stopping by my web page. It is truly an honor to represent you in the legislature. During my first year in the House, I learned a lot about how the system works and doesn’t work. Particularly, it made me more determined to ensure that I was part of a team effort to build coalitions to get results for you, my constituents, and the rest of the State of Colorado.
We did a lot of good things last session, starting with increasing the budget for K-12, higher education, mental health, and Medicaid, especially after several years of cuts which hurt Coloradans. We also passed bills to help small businesses start, grow, and export. I am also proud of historic votes I took to establish civil unions, improve sane gun safety, expand voting capabilities, ensure greater renewable energy production, and the list goes on. All of the 6 bills I carried, passed.
Most of what we did in the legislature was bi-partisan, but sadly you won’t hear about that in the media. On all issues, great and small, we heard from you, by phone, email, mail, or a personal visit. I value your input!
As we approach the next session, which begins January 8, 2014, please feel free to contact me any time about issues of concern to you and your neighbors or if you have any ideas of bills you think I should run. I was SO VERY HAPPY when constituents came down the Capitol to visit–please do come, and my awesome aide, Deborhah or I will show you around. I’m in room 307, on the 3rd floor.
Thank you again. I enjoy serving you.
Colorado State Representative
House Dist. 9
