What would you like the voters to know about you?

I am a native and grew up in rural Colorado. I am a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado. My final degree was issued in 2000, with an emphasis in Educational Leadership. I’ve also just completed my 37 year in public education. I am a advocate for education and educational programs.

How would you assure qualified persons are appointed to regulatory positions and commissions?

I have been a union President, served on my local Board of Education and will have completed nine years of serve Nov. 2019. With my leadership skills, I believe it is important to know the person’s purpose for serving and know their beliefs are commensurate with the position sought.

1.

There is a separation of church and state which I deal with in my current position. At times I struggle with this!

2.

There are parameters that organizations must function within to receive Federal dollars.

3.

Yes because some of our small rural churches struggle to meet their monthly expenses.

4.

Gaming in Colorado is a high dollar profitable business. Not sure why I would weigh in on this.

5.

When you select to open a business to the public, you cannot pick and choose who walks through your door.

6.

I work with young students who fear they will go home and their parents may not be there. It’s not how it should be.
