Democracy

Fight corruption and promote democracy

I will fight for our democracy, challenging the influence of dark money (enabled by the Citizens United decision), gerrymandered districts, and voter suppression efforts.

Our democracy depends on an engaged citizenry and institutions that elevate, rather than debase, our political system. With the rise of dark money and attack politics, enabled by the horrendous Citizens United decision, our citizens have declining faith in our democratic institutions.

In Colorado, we have worked to encourage voting—through mail in balloting—and we have developed competitive districts. We need to maintain this tradition and seek to revitalize our democracy, not allowing it to become a tool and controlled by the wealthy and special interests hiding behind dark money organizations.
