If I have the privilege of becoming Colorado’s next Governor, I am excited at the opportunity to work with great organizations such as the Colorado Cross Disability Coalition (CCDC). This group gives a voice to Colorado’s disabled community that far too often has been ignored or neglected in public policy discussions. My administration will look to bring a broad swathe of stakeholder groups to the table when determining our priorities and I look forward to working with CCDC to implement policies that will protect and promote the disabled community.
This means crafting policies that allows folks in the disabled community to work without losing their benefits and working on programs to ensure access to healthcare and housing. As a society, we must create an environment that allows all people to pursue their own American dream and I look forward to working with CCDC to make this a reality for all Coloradans with disabilities.
