Dear Members,

It is a privilege to serve as co-chair of the CCDC board alongside Lloyd Lewis, and to support all of the amazing staff, volunteers, and members of CCDC. I got involved with advocacy out of personal need, Julie Reiskin and others helped with my issues but also showed me the need for cross-disability advocacy. Through my involvement with CCDC, ADAPT, and the Arc I have had some incredible opportunities and together we have made Colorado one of the best places to live and work for people with disabilities.

I’m honored to share that I’ll be participating on the Transition Subcommittee on Health and Human Services for Governor Elect Jared Polis and the Jared Polis-Dianne Primavera Administration. The Transition Team is charged with helping to recruit cabinet-level personnel for the Administration, and the Health Subcommittee is currently looking for the best thinkers and bold leaders to fill the following positions: the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing, the Commissioner of the Division of Insurance, the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Human Services, and the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

To apply for a position, learn more about the openings, or share your thoughts on the process, please go to the Transition’s website I will do my best to share concerns and values of the disability community, but for transparency and distribution to all relevant committees the new administration has asked that comments and concerns be share through the Boldly Forward website.

Best Regards,

Josh Winkler, CCDC Board of Directors. Co-Chair
