As Colorado Democrats, we believe…

  • In an economy where hard work is rewarded, where everyone pays his or her fair share and plays by the rules;
  • In a government that’s focused on building a more secure middle class, with good paying jobs, affordable higher education and healthcare and a secure retirement;
  • In a government that follows science and is working to confront the challenges of climate change;
  • That everyone-not just those at the top-should have afair shot at success anda chance to get ahead;
  • That we all have a responsibility to ourselves, our families and our communities; and
  • That all people should have the freedom to make their own choices and live the life they want.
