Dear Friends,

For the past twenty years, I have worked to expand access to quality public education. Now, I am running to be your representative on the University of Colorado Board of Regents. CU is a world-class institution with four diverse campuses, serving some 60,000 students. The University is Colorado’s third largest employer, and its research propels much of our state’s economic growth.

Despite limited resources, we must find a way to make higher education more affordable for Colorado families. Higher education is the gateway to economic opportunity, and it is central to strengthening our economy – now and for generations to come.

I am proud to be running for the Congressional District 2 open seat now held by Joe Neguse. I am honored to have earned the support of so many community leaders such as U.S. Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, Congressman Jared Polis, and all four of the sitting Democratic Regents – Michael Carrigan, Stephen Ludwig and Irene Griego, in addition to Joe Neguse.

I am a proud CU graduate, as are two of my three adult children and two of their spouses. With your support, I will work to ensure that the University of Colorado will be affordable, accessible and accountable to all of us.

Please explore my website to learn more about my background and my vision for the University of Colorado. I welcome your feedback and your ideas about how CU can better serve the people of the state of Colorado.

Sincerely,
