I believe that our state and federal governments must work for ordinary Americans, not against them. I believe the focus must be on the issues that unite us for the common good and that government should be focused on people, not profits for a few.

That's why I have never accepted PAC contributions. I am one of only 7 out of the 100 legislators in Colorado who has made this decision. For me, the system must give more voice to my constituents than to special interest political action committees (PACs).
