A native of Boulder, Colorado, I have been active in social issues for several years now. I understand the importance of helping shape the policies that our government creates. These policies effect every aspect of our lives from the air we breathe to the streets that we drive and walk on. Our leaders at every level of government need to hear from us so they can know how to best create policies that work for the people. I plan to use my Citizen account to interact with my elected officials and to learn about who is running in my elections so I can help elect leaders who will best serve the people.
