My life has been about giving back to community. I will continue to work for all members of Boulder County and address issues of Accessible Housing, Healthy Environment & Community, Economic Opportunity, Climate Change & Sustainability, Social Justice & Equity and Stewardship & Management of Resources.
I am honored to have been asked by community to run and represent District 2 as your next Boulder County Commissioner. I bring a unique and qualified local community voice and will continue to support your needs and interests.
Accessible housing is demonstrated when we have
housing available at an attainable level for
the diverse members and unique
circumstances of our entire community.
We must ensure that our public servants like
teachers and police can live in the same
community that they serve. I will continue to
address the issue of access to housing with
creative solutions and a housing expert
lens, as I have for 20 years as a sustainable
A healthy community is visible, heard, able to
participate and is educated. Health & Human
services are critical to create options and
alternatives for all residents. My work with
Resiliencia Para Todos/Resiliency for All addressed health
and safety equity issues experienced by
residents of Boulder County after the Flood
of 2013. I will further partnerships with local
agencies that fight for community justice
issues, impacting holistic health and wellness;
from access to healthy foods to
open space and parks.
A thriving community is only possible when
economic opportunity is equally available to
everyone. For over 20 years, I have fought to
ensure that all of our Boulder County
residents have the same access to housing
and the financing that makes that possible. I
spent years working to address the
generational wealth gap that exists. My
community voice is critical to include real life
stories of students, families and small
business owners as our County continues to
Boulder County and Colorado are leading climate action initiatives through pivotal work and research around sustainability and local resiliency. Marta has been a leader in assuring all residents of Boulder County are considered and included in local climate action solutions. It is imperative to include bilingual youth, Latino Cultural Brokers, local government partners and community agencies to further conversations about working together to determine more resilient climate action strategies that work for all. Marta will begin to implement existing community based recommendations, to ensure that more voices throughout Boulder County are incorporated in our local climate action solutions.
During the last 12 months of participating in community events, discussions, town halls, and local hearings; I have heard a resounding concern from Boulder County residents feeling like they are “not heard.” From a business and operational perspective the root of that concern must be addressed in local government. Community members currently have very limited forms and tools to communicate with Boulder County Commissioners. Marta has already been engaging with new forms of outreach to involve underrepresented sectors of community to emphasize the importance of new input and participation in county matters. Overseeing and ensuring that our county resources are used efficiently, effectively and equitably is simply a good business practice. Marta will offer a fresh perspective on fiduciary oversight, county operations, and equitable resource allocation.
I will lead with a unique lens to do the critical work of institutional change with the same urgency I have been for the last 28 years. As a single parent, my life has been a path of role modeling and working hard to create a future for my two boys.
