Coloradans Need Clean Air and Water
From Devil's Backbone to the Flatirons, Senate District 15 is home to countless natural spaces that make it the most beautiful district in the state. We need bold leadership who understands that keeping our natural spaces clean, healthy and safe is key to protecting our recreation, economy, agriculture, and livelihoods.
A key part of protecting our natural and residential spaces is combating the growing threat of wildfires, droughts and floods. Wildfires have become a year-around danger to our mountain communities and all across the Front Range. We must be proactive in our efforts to enact legislation to protect our environment and homes.
As your next State Senator, I will work with our skilled local leaders from Loveland to Lyons to implement solutions to combat the growing threats to our water, air, and land. I will support legislation that bolsters wildfire risk education & outreach to the more than half of Coloradans living in the Wildfire-Urban-Interface; invest in workforce development programs for the energy sector, ensuring our workforce is prepared to take on the clean energy jobs of the future; tackle weatherizing our homes and energy infrastructure to protect against outages in extreme heat and cold; and support training programs for coal workers to make sure they and their families are taken care of during transitions to natural gas and renewable energy.
