Vote Polis for governor

In the 19 years since the shooting at Columbine High school, there have been no meaningful pieces of federal gun legislation. I should know, I am a Columbine survivor.

When I graduated, I watched the gun-control debate rage, but I believed that I could help make a change that would ensure that we would be the last group of students to have our sense of safety shattered.

As I watched gun violence escalate hope turned to cynicism, until I attended the March for our Lives Rally in Denver.

At the rally, I saw Denver’s Civic Center Park overfilled with my fellow Coloradans demanding change so that their children don’t have live in fear of a shooting at their school and doing what we do best: coming together to make our voices heard. Seeing this caused me to recapture optimism for our future.

This movement needed a leader capable of delivering the change that so many people in our great state crave and I believe that the leader we need is Jared Polis. This is why I’m supporting him in his bid to be the next governor of Colorado.

I have followed Jared’s career closely and I know that he’s a rarity because he has what so many of our elected representatives sorely lack: political courage.

That political courage has pushed Jared to focus on and fight for what is best for the people of Colorado. I hope you join me in supporting Jared Polis for governor.
