I am running for the soul of Denver. I am running because I want to ensure we have a vibrant middle class that can work and live in this city. I am running to represent you.

Over time, our wonderful city has become less inclusive to people from all walks of life. The housing and jobs that have flooded Denver increasingly cater to the already wealthy and educated.

We have seen this sad trend elsewhere. Cities such as San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland have already gone down this path. All of these cities have effectively hollowed out their middle class.

I am running because I don’t want Denver to repeat their mistakes. I am running because I worry for the future of our city, and I want to fight these trends.
