The 2019 legislative session is over – here's what we accomplished

In just 120 days, I passed 32 bills – and was able to work with Republican co-sponsors for more than half of them. In a time when our public conversations seem hopelessly divided, I collaborated with GOP Senators like Senator Rankin to pass laws to improve the lives of Coloradans. Gridlock may paralyze Washington D.C. but here in Colorado, we know how to work together to get things done.

You Did It - Thank you

I am honored to be the Senator-elect for Senate District 24. The North Metro area is where I am raising my family, where I own my small business, and where I love to play – that is why I ran a grassroots campaign. I trusted that if we involve the community in our campaign, then they would trust me to represent them with accountability, transparency, and a belief that Colorado’s economy should work for hardworking families.

Conservation is key to Colorado's outdoor lifestyle

My commitment to conservation, to protecting our clean air and water, our open spaces and recreation areas has never wavered. From my college career – a B.S. degree in Environmental Management and Biology – to my years of public service on the board of the Butterfly Pavilion, on the Westminster City Council and in the legislature, I’ve always stood up to protect Colorado's environment and the outdoor lifestyle we all love.

I'll continue standing up for paid family leave

I have been the lead sponsor of paid family leave bills at the Capitol three times. I believe that Coloradans can be both responsible employees and responsible family members. When Coloradans give birth to or adopt a new baby, battle cancer or take care of a dying parent, their families will be stronger – and they'll perform better at work – if they can take care of their loved ones without losing needed pay. Many workers simply can’t afford to choose between a paycheck and caring for a recovering spouse without the risk of being evicted or getting behind on utility bills.

The stakes are high

When I was growing up in Littleton, I never expected to be quoted in The New York Times. That’s pretty much the paper of record for our nation. But just last night, the NYT published a profile of my race as a key pick-up for Democrats across the country.

Noting the fact that winning my seat means the Democrats will take control of the Colorado State Senate, the article highlights what’s at stake:

We needed a transportation solution

In the last four years, I’ve spent thousands of hours in my car commuting to work, driving my kids to after school activities, and heading west to go hiking on the weekends. At least half of those hours are wasted time because I’m stuck in traffic – valuable time I could be spending meeting with my neighbors, hanging out with my family, or volunteering at my kids’ school.

#FamiliesBelongTogether

As a mother, my kids inform every decision I make, from championing paid family leave policies so every child can have a parent care for them when they’re sick, to driving them from gymnastics to track practice and every other extracurricular activities. Tobin and Sienna are the center of my world, and they depend on their father and me for love, support, safety and health.
