Better world is possible

Over the past few years, Colorado in general and the Denver Metro area specifically have seen tremendous growth, and with it, booming economic prosperity for the already wealthy.

Unfortunately, that prosperity has failed to reach thousands of hardworking Coloradans from all walks of life who are struggling every day to get by. With the cost of housing, healthcare, and living endlessly rising, we have to work harder and longer to get less and less. The status quo is no longer working for the majority of Coloradans.

We must, therefore, demand that our representatives enact policies that will bolster the working class. Policies like paid family and medical leave, affordable housing, and universal healthcare are not liberal government overreach; they are common sense efforts that will benefit those of us who have been left behind in this moment of exceptional wealth.

What’s more, these policies have overwhelming approval by the majority of Coloradans.

There will be naysayers and claims that these policies go too far or are too expensive, but we are struggling, our neighbors are struggling, our families are struggling, and our communities are struggling while a select few prosper at our expense. The recent election ushered in a group of candidates who campaigned on many of these bold policies. It’s time to hold them accountable so that all Coloradans are able to live with dignity.

Kayla Smith,

Westminster
