Colorado’s high country is an amazing place to live but we need to do more to make sure our rural and mountain communities are also places where hardworking individuals can find a good job, raise a family, and start a business. At the Capitol, I led our state’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, created programs to support and jump-start rural small businesses, and crafted legislation to ensure hardworking individuals have access to good-paying jobs.
You can count on me to continue fighting to:
Sponsor bills to lower taxes and fees for small businesses
Create incentives to bring 21st century jobs to Colorado
Ensure our communities have the tools they need to support and retain local workforce with housing, child care, and more
Support economic development opportunities for communities experiencing energy transitions
