Centennial, Colo (August 13, 2019) – – Former Deputy Secretary of State and Littleton City Attorney Suzanne Staiert officially launched her campaign for Senate District 27 in South Denver Metro.
Surrounded by family, friends, and supporters, Staiert outlined her platform and vision for the office.
“Experience matters. For 20 years I have lived, worked, volunteered, and raised a family in this community,” Staiert said.
Staiert’s platform will emphasize education, school safety, mental health, and economic growth – along with other issues relevant to Senate District 27.
“My oldest daughter was a freshman at Arapahoe High School during a school shooting,” Staiert shared. “My middle daughter has been to funerals every year of high school for classmates that have taken their own lives.”
“As a mom, I think we need to do more to keep our schools safe. We should not have to live in constant fear or have to question whether our kids are safe. We need to take serious steps to address and treat the mental health crisis feeding these tragedies.”
Staiert believes the solutions to these issues are not partisan, and as the candidate with the most experience in state government, she has the knowledge and skillset to actually get it done.
A Republican, Staiert is running to replace Sen. Jack Tate, who has announced he will not be seeking re-election in 2020.
