We need to empower women running for office in this mid-term election, and encourage younger generations to get involved in the political process. To that end, I support Jena Griswold for secretary of state in this election, and ask people to vote for her. Jena is a smart, hardworking young woman who is a voter rights attorney. She grew up in Estes Park, in a working class family. She started working the summer after seventh grade and is the first person in her family to attend a four-year college and law school. Jena is a lawyer, a voter protection specialist, and a small business owner who has spent her career fighting for justice and fairness.
Jena Griswold is committed to working for all the people of Colorado, not for a political party. Voters often do not vote all the way down the ballot, but I urge you to vote for candidates who represent compassion, civility and decency. I am an unaffiliated voter, and will be voting for women wherever possible. Electing Jena as our next secretary of state will encourage and support women and young people to get involved, run for office, and work to make our world a better place.
