Solving the climate crisis is personal to Tracey. She’s standing up to polluters and helping move everyone to a fossil-free future.
This issue is personal to me. I can’t tell you the toll it takes on a mother to bring their child to the ER because poor air quality is causing an asthma attack. The Marshall Fire has demonstrated that no one is immune to the threats that climate change brings to our daily lives. We need bold policies to decarbonize every sector of our society, build more climate resilience and help everyone transition to a sustainable future. I want to continue my work to wean Coloradans off fracked gas, expand infrastructure to support electric vehicles, green buildings, and renewable energy, and hold oil and gas accountable for the full costs they cause to our environment and health.
Creating the leaders of the 21st century requires a leader willing to take on threats to public education.
Like many parents across Colorado, I’m worried about the steps Republicans in our legislature and across the country are taking to limit students’ ability to receive a well-rounded education. . While fighting these efforts to harm public education, class sizes remain too large, and teachers aren’t getting paid enough. I’m running for re-election to bring a perspective to the State Capitol that unites our state to take on these tasks so our children can get the education they deserve.
Working families are feeling the squeeze on their pocketbooks across Colorado. Tracey’s fighting for them.
Whether it’s gaps in access to healthcare, gender pay, high-quality education, or affordable housing, issues caused by inequities are hurting Colorado families. These issues aren’t solved on their own and I’ve spent my last term addressing inequities throughout our state. I want to be a voice for people who don’t have a voice. That’s why I’ve been working to reduce costs so more families don’t have to choose between their bills and their healthcare.
