The New American Dream (Ep 4) – The Democracy Initiatives
“Today, I’m excited to announce the next big step for my congressional campaign: The Democracy Initiatives – four Citizen’s Initiatives created by my campaign that will modernize and transform the democratic process in the state of Colorado. These four initiatives are:
– Making Election Day a state holiday called “Democracy Day” in Colorado.
– Publicly funding Colorado’s elections with “Democracy Vouchers” for every registered voter.
– Creating tax credits for voting in Colorado’s primary and general elections.
– Replacing our unfair and broken voting system with an Approval Voting system, meaning that we make one simple change to the way that we vote: allowing people to vote for as many candidates as they want instead of just one candidate.
The Democracy Initiatives will transform Colorado’s democratic process by boosting voter turnout in our primary and general elections, giving the people more power in the campaign finance system, and giving third-party and Independent candidates a truly fair chance at running competitive campaigns against major party candidates. These are the kinds of policies that we need to fight for in every state throughout the nation so we can get more people voting, more people involved in the process, and more outsider politicians challenging the status quo.”
The New American Dream (Ep 3) – Congress Does What It Does Best
“My favorite part of running for office is all of the amazing opportunities I have to reach out and connect with so many different people in so many different ways. One of the top priorities of my campaign is trying to help inform people about what’s going on in the world of politics in a way that’s both entertaining *and* informative.
That’s why we decided to cover some of this week’s most interesting and absurd political news on this episode of The New American Dream! I talk about the US House vote to override Trump’s veto, Mitch McConnell’s sham vote on The Green New Deal, Senator Mike Lee being absolutely ridiculous, and I take a closer look at US Senator Cory Gardner and a passionate progressive running for his Senate seat in 2020 here in Colorado. Hope you enjoy!”
The New American Dream (Ep 2) – Affordable Housing and Rent Stabilization Rally
“We NEED affordable housing. This must become a top priority for our legislatures. Not just in Denver. Not just in Colorado. We need this throughout the entire nation.
There are over 550,000 homeless people struggling to survive in our country. That’s roughly the equivalent of the entire population of the state of Wyoming slipping through the cracks of our society. Meanwhile, millions more are being forced out of their homes and communities, away from their jobs and families, and out of their school systems because the cost of living in their neighborhood has doubled or tripled over the last decade alone.
That’s why I joined United For A New Economy at an Affordable Housing and Rent Stabilization Rally in support of a bill sponsored by Senator Julie Gonzales that would empower our local city and county governments to create and enact solutions to our housing crisis.
The people of Colorado are incredibly passionate about this issue, so on this episode of The New American Dream, I decided to let them do most of the talking!
Special thanks to Senator Julie Gonzales for sponsoring the bill and to United For A New Economy, 9to5 Colorado, and Colorado Homes for All for hosting this event.”
