Letter to the editor: Let’s ride this wave

“I have a vision that the morning after the election’s headlines will read, “Mid-Term Election Turn Out at All Time High.” There is a wave coming, and it’s a wave of justice, equality, freedom, and love. Be part of this wave, and be a good voter. Be a person who completes their entire ballot and votes on time.
This vision is so important to me that I have been walking door to door to tell people about my favorite candidate: Brianna Titone. As I’ve been talking to neighbors about their priorities at the state capitol, education has by far been the highest priority in HD 27. Brianna understands that our schools are grossly underfunded, and that our children reap the consequences. Colorado pays $2,800 less than the national per pupil average, and Jeffco is in a teacher shortage. Denver, Boulder, Cherry Creek, and Littleton pay their teachers more, so our teachers are leaving in order to meet the cost of living and student loan debt. Amendment 73 would bring our spending to just below the national average, and would do so by ensuring that the funding works for working families, instead of for the rich minority. 5A would help Jeffco compete in good teacher recruitment. Brianna understands all of these things, and supports Amendment 73, 5A, and 5B. She is the public education candidate, and I can’t wait to see her win in November.
Be part of the massive voter turnout, and be a good voter.
