Statement from Rachel Zenzinger re: Election Results 2016
“Thank you to the staff, volunteers, family members, and all the other people who supported or donated to this winning campaign. Senate District 19 is comprised of a large percentage of voters with moderate political views, and it seems they tipped the polls in our favor during this 2016 election. I am grateful to those voters who took the time to absorb our middle-of-the-road, commonsense messages in which we emphasized plans for collaboration at the State House. I plan to move forward quickly in the areas that we have pledged for so long to improve: education, housing, transportation, environment and measures to help middle-class families succeed, just to name a few.
“The campaign at times was divisive, partly because we have so many issues to address, with such a diversity of interests within District 19. Now it’s time to put any differences behind us and work together toward common goals such as quality of life, economic growth and a promising future for our children. Thank you to my opponent in the election, Sen. Laura Woods, who ran an energetic campaign and who graciously called to wish me luck in my new job.
“In coming weeks, we will be working to tie up loose ends, update the website, and of course prepare for the start of the 2017 General Assembly Session. Eventually, this website will be the place to go whenever you need information about my activities as your new State Senator, representing Arvada and the Jefferson County side of Westminster. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the election and all the ways that we can make Arvada, Westminster and all of Colorado a great place to live.”
Senate Democrats announce committee assignments
I was excited to learn that the Senate Democrats had assigned me to work on the Senate Education Committee, and then added assignment to the Senate Transportation Committee, both effective Jan. 11 when the 71st General Assembly opens its 2016 session. As you know, my professional background is in the field of education, and I am especially passionate about doing everything we can to give our children a quality education. As I went door-to-door during the recent campaign, most of my discussions eventually touched upon the topic of education. And if it wasn’t education, it was probably transportation! I know a lot of Arvada and Westminster residents are concerned about the condition of our roads and bridges, and where we might find the funds to improve those conditions.
I have also been assigned to participate on an interim panel called the Student Safety and Youth in Crisis Committee. If you have thoughts about some advancements we might be able to make on any of these three committees, please don’t hesitate to contact me at SenatorRachelZ@gmail.com.
