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 :)
