Monica Duran, Democratic candidate for House District 24

Why are you seeking this office?

I believe in a Colorado that works for everyone. Colorado’s economy is growing — but many are being left behind. Whether it’s seniors trying to afford their property taxes or single moms trying to put food on the table, I want to make sure no one slips through the cracks.

What makes you the most qualified person for the position?

With my experience on the Wheat Ridge City Council and on my local fire protection board, I have learned how to bring people together to solve problems — and how to lead the way on tough issues. Having lived here for twenty five years — sending my sons through Jeffco public schools — I have watched our area grow and change. I’ve built a record of making sure that change brings real benefit to our neighborhoods and never rolling over for powerful out-of-state corporations.

What would your top two priorities be if elected?

My kids grew up going to Jeffco public schools. Those schools created opportunities for my sons — protecting Jeffco’s neighborhood public schools is my first priority. I will work to level the playing field so that more hardworking families are able to share in Colorado’s prosperity, so that lifelong residents aren’t priced out of their own homes and an economy that works for everyone by passing the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act.

What else should the voters know about you?

It has been an honor to serve Wheat Ridge citizens on the city council. I have a track record of bringing my community together. I will take that same service-oriented leadership to the Capitol. The challenges I’ve faced have made me stronger and given me a passion to help others.
