As a mother, I’ve started to think about summer – signing up for camp, organizing play dates with neighbor children and planning our first backpacking trip. One thing I know for sure: We need clean air to enjoy Colorado this year and for generations to come.
I recently found this photo from my 1st CMKB event a few years back – it’s a reminder of how honored I have felt to spend the past year working and talking with moms across this state about clean air policy, the future of our state and our families. When asked what CMKB is about I quickly replied, “clean air and healthy kids!”
Over the past year, we have attended hearings at the EPA and several at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. We have celebrated at Rocky Mountain. National Park and protested with Santa and his reindeer in front of Attorney General Cynthia Coffman’s office. We have appeared on television, radio, in newspapers and online. Moms will go wherever there is a need.
My time as Head Mom is coming to a close, but we are pleased to welcome new Head Mom, Jen Clanahan. While the attacks on clean energy and clean air are sure to continue, Jen is committed to organize us all to protect our Colorado. In the years to come I hope to see all of you out in our parks and the Capitol steps, as we continue this fight for our health, our Colorado and our children.
