Proudly Supported By:

Colorado Working Families Party  A Working Families Party endorsement is the progressive seal of approval. It tells voters which candidates we can really count on to fight for the issues that matter most: from fair funding of our public schools and living wage jobs, to ending mass incarceration and getting big money out of politics.  Candi states that, “If the Working Families Party did not exist in Colorado we would have to create it. WFP is building a movement that stands up to corporate developers, corporate polluters, and other wealthy interests that have hijacked our democracy. I have been fighting against these wealthy interests for many years and proud to join with WFP as an endorsed candidate.” She is the Working Families candidate that Denverites can count in District 9.
