2019 Legislative Session Has Begun

In November, I was re-elected to a second two-year term in the Colorado House of Representatives.  I thank everyone who got involved in this election cycle for your hard work and civic engagement. It is with great pride that I represent Boulder at the State Capitol, and I will do everything in my power to advocate for my constituents, Coloradans, and our precious natural environment.

I have also been honored to be elected Majority Caucus Chair for the House Democrats, joining fellow Boulder legislators KC Becker –  Speaker of the House – and Steve Fenberg, Senate Majority Leader, in legislative leadership positions.  And of course, Governor Jared Polis!  If I have one take away in this concentration of leadership at the Capitol coming from Boulder, it is that we represent a community that truly reflects progressive values, which will help bring about a better future for all of Colorado. Critical to our success has been the ongoing mentorship of former Boulder leaders who have led the way for us. We owe them all a deep debt of gratitude.

 If you have questions or if I can be of service in any way, email me at edie.hooton.house@state.co.us.
