Welcome! The 2015 legislative session began January 7, 2015. I continue to work hard as your public servant, and my door is always open to meet in person, talk over the phone or communicate electronically. My monthly community conversations, town hall meetings and issue forums provide opportunities for informed civic engagement and community dialogue. I genuinely want to know what's on your mind and in your heart. My next community conversation is this Saturday, 1/17, 9 AM at Daz Bog Coffee, Fort Collins. Our first community issue forum is Saturday, 1/24, 10 AM at Council Tree Library, Fort Collins. The issue is "Retirement Security and the Silver Tsunami: How Should Public & Private Workers Prepare for Their Golden Years?"
Each day is full and meaningful as I focus on my legislative, constituent, teaching, political and family responsibilities. My policy priorities include economic opportunity/poverty reduction; early childhood development/affordable/quality child care/preschool; college affordability/quality; quality/lower-cost health care; job creation and workforce development, community college faculty working conditions; issues related to seniors and persons with disabilities; government accountability/transparency and flood/wildfire recovery.
To access legislative information and resources, go to the Colorado General Assembly website. Informed and engaged citizens are vital to maintaining a strong and functional representative democracy. Thank you for your support and encouragement, and it is indeed a labor of love to work for the common good. Please keep in touch, be well and have a great Colorado day.
State Senator (SD-14)
Fort Collins, Colorado
