Running for office as a working mom
Running for public office is a privilege and an honor. The only way I am able to run for office is because I have a supportive partner, family and friends that will watch and love my kids and colleagues that let me off the hook if I need to leave work early etc. Everyone running for office in this Wheat Ridge municipal election is sacrificing something to serve our community. We are all working to protect the future of Wheat Ridge. We may disagree on how to get to that outcome, but every candidate in these races are trying to serve our community to the best of their ability. I encourage everyone to not let the divisiveness that has infiltrated our national and even state political landscape trickle into the local elections. Vote for the candidate that shares your vision of the future of Wheat Ridge. All the candidates share the same value...we love Wheat Ridge!
