Join my campaign team to hear from alexandria ocasio cortez!

Announcing the youth leadership scholarship

Marta testifying at the Boulder County Commissioners office regarding Oil & Gas Dev. Moratorium

Join me Sept 21st!


Over the last 8 months since I decided to run for Boulder County Commissioner, I’ve joined in a variety of groups and organizations working in community projects and programs around the critical topics of health, climate, education, transportation, agriculture, housing and many others.

I keep noticing that in Boulder county, we are missing the YOUTH in these critical conversations.  Part of my story is looking back and reaching out- looking for a student who needs support, financial advice, encouragement or someone to open a first door of opportunity.

This past weekend I was thinking more into WHY I Am running for Boulder County Commissioner. As a single mother of two ELL students & a Teacher I have a passion for kids who work hard to succeed and do more in their communities.

I want youth input and participation in this campaign and further work so we can build together: the platforms and programs to build a sustainable future WITH youth voices at the table leading the conversation.

So here is the INVITATION: Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is going to be in Boulder on Sept 21st and I want YOU to join me.    I believe that all of community needs to be represented, encouraged and supported to LEAD.  

So here’s your homework :)

Boulder County STUDENTS:

Create a short video answering two questions

  1. How does AOC inspire you to engage locally?
  2. What do I, MARTA, as a Boulder County Commissioner Candidate, need to know to ensure your voice is properly represented in 2020?

Post your 1-2 minute video!  

Tag your video to my facebook page @MARTA4boco

Challenge is MOST video shares and likes

Deadline is Sept 14th 5pm MST

Leadership needs to include community voice and youth participation is how we will build a pipeline of uniquely qualified community leaders

We'll choose our YOUTH LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIP Sept 18th SO don’t miss it!


Sometimes we don't get a seat at the table.   I believe that all of community needs to be represented, encouraged and supported to LEAD.  The youth are our future and must have space to engage.
