Affordable and accessible housing is demonstrated when we have housing available at an attainable level for the diverse members and unique circumstances of our entire community. Affordable housing is typically considered government subsidized housing and I have helped hundreds of families become first time buyers in our local community. My housing expertise is an asset when we look at gaps of accessible housing. Incorporating my lens to work to open up creative options of transitional, senior and workforce housing as some of the ways to support community expressed concerns on more safe and stable housing.
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 housing advocate.
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 flourish.
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.
My diverse career background has created opportunities to work in social justice and equity for all. 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.
Boulder County and Colorado are leading climate action initiatives through pivotal work and research around sustainability and local resiliency. I have 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. I will begin to implement existing community based recommendations, to ensure that more voices throughout Boulder County are incorporated in our local climate action solutions.
I have been 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.
