Vote for 302: Healthy Food for Denver Kids
This November, I encourage City of Denver residents to vote YES on Ordinance 302, to help feed and educate kids. Healthy Food for Denver Kids is a citizen-initiated ballot measure geared towards feeding Denver’s low-income kids and making healthy options more accessible.
This measure would increase sales taxes by .08% (less than a penny on a $10 purchase) to provide millions in funding for healthy food and food education programs in Denver over a ten-year period.
In the last 30 days, 1 in 7 Denver kids missed a meal because their kids could not afford to eat. Research shows that children and teens with uncertain or limited access to nutritional foods are more likely to have high blood pressure than those who don’t. Hunger indeed has lifelong impacts on the health of our kids.

My Choice for Colorado Secretary of State
It is essential for a healthy democracy that everyone who is eligible to vote can. I support Jena Griswold for Colorado Secretary of State because she understands that it is imperative that all folks have their voices heard and their votes counted..
Jena grew up in rural Colorado in a working class family. She has worked since she was in the seventh grade and was the first person in her family to attend a four year college and complete law school. She is smart, passionate and committed to protecting our freedom to vote, making sure folks have access to the polls and protecting our political systems from corruption and undue influence.
Jena Griswold is my choice for Colorado Secretary of State.
