Here in Colorado, I have been fortunate enough to be a part of a strong community that values diversity and respects our differences, but our health care and educational systems rarely match our American promise; I will provide leadership to change that. “We must end the war in Iraq so we can focus on combating poverty and discrimination and growing a more inclusive and sustainable economy here at home.

If elected, Polis will become Colorado’s first openly gay representative. Quite a change for the state that once boasted the highest concentration of Evangelicals.
