It’s been a very interesting time for me since I declared my Candidacy in December 2018, long before anyone else even considered entering the race. I’ve been attending various city committee meetings since January 2019, to learn how the current power structures are organized and operate. I’ve knocked on thousands of doors, talked with hundreds of residents, made connections up and down the Front Range. Speaking with Coloradans, Municipalities, Businesses, and Elected Officials that are already implementing the solutions I’ve been talking about during the campaign. I’ve been participating with various local advocacy and education groups including Mom’s Demand Action, Out Boulder County, Sustainable Broomfield, and the Crescent Grange, to name a few. I’m even seen in the background of several press conferences, bill signings, events, and even protests. Sometimes, to stand for Health and Safety, means getting out and protesting.
Two of the most unexpected experiences, was meeting two of the most influential women in politics on the National Stage – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. I was the key photographer for the Truman Dinner where AOC was the Keynote Speaker. And Nancy Pelosi’s addressed Health Care at the Interlocken speaking event, where I was wearing my candidacy name tag, and she graciously leaned in and said “Congratulations, thank you for running, and Good Luck!”. The added bonus at the Pelosi event was catching up with the now Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera. I personally canvassed with the Lt. Governor during her last campaign for the Colorado House of Representatives.
Thank you for this amazing journey. There are still four weeks left before Election Night. If I haven’t already knocked on your door, I will. If you have any questions about issues, where I stand, the solutions I’m proposing, and what research I’m doing, feel free to reach out.
