"Good health is necessary for a thriving economy. My priorities include increased support for public health, including common sense gun safety and mental health, jobs, including small business development, and promoting conservation. These priorities are all interdependent - just like our Douglas County community."
Having a good job, not sitting in traffic, having time to enjoy our beautiful outdoors, clean air, and ample water all contribute to good mental and physical health. And good health is necessary for a thriving economy and the ability to enjoy our beautiful Colorado way of life.
Increase support for mental health and public safety, including common sense gun safety. We need to make it easier for families to connect to mental health supports BEFORE they are in crisis. And now that we're in the midst of a pandemic, the importance of placing public health as a top priority is even more clear.

Why is your vote for county commissioner so important?
The three member Board of County Commissioners serve as the governing body for Douglas County. They are responsible for the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens.
Commissioners work with staff to identify spending priorities for our $463 million budget, and set policy related to transportation, public safety, economic development, land use, special districts, and more. The decisions they make often impact our daily lives more than state or federal legislation.
Commissioners are elected countywide, but must live in their district. Every registered voter in Douglas County has the opportunity to vote for two commissioners in 2020. Darien is running to represent District 3, which is Highlands Ranch.
