Background

Past Political Activity

In addition to voting, I became politically active during the 2019 legislative session and continued to be in the 2020 session. That activity consisted of traveling to Denver to speak with legislators, testifying in both House and Senate hearings, and walking for a house district candidate. I have donated to Senator Lundeen, Rep. Williams and Rep. Geitner who are all based in my county.

List of Political and Civic Organizations belonged to

My husband and I belong to our HOA and a local church. I have been involved in some FaceBook and grassroots groups around political issues, but have never officially joined or paid dues to any of them.

Organization and Advocacy Experience

I helped a group of local moms and dads organize to advocate for their families at the Capital and helped to organize two large group rallies for them.

Statement

As I have become more involved in local issues and politics, I have become so much more aware of their importance in the life of my family, friends and fellow citizens. I have been guilty of focusing more on national politics, and now I would like to be a part of giving to and helping shape the decisions being made on a state and local level.

Statement on Working with Consensus

As I have aged, I have become more and more aware of how important it is to look at things from different sides and angles. I have also realized that I need to fight for fairness and equality for all sides. For example, if I would not want myself and others to be mistreated by a group in power, I should not seek to encourage that same misuse of power when/if the group I support is in power. Finding common ground, listening well, and seeking to understand others are all tools that I try to use to seek fairness and impartiality.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

My mind naturally works in an analytical, logical, methodical, and detailed way, and I am always looking for the most efficient ways to accomplish tasks.
