Representative Sonya Jaquez Lewis, CO House District 12 | Candidate for CO Senate District 17

Dear Friends and Family,

I am honored to serve the Boulder County Community, which I have cherished for more than 20 years, as the current Colorado State House Rep HD12.

I am also excited to announce my 2020 candidacy for Colorado State Senate District 17, where I will have the honor to represent Eastern Boulder County residents of Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville and Erie.

I firmly believe Eastern Boulder County needs a thoughtful, compassionate leader with a record of accomplishment at the Capitol, to be our voice in the State Senate.  

On the Boulder County Board of Health, I voted for the first oil and gas moratorium in Boulder County, which kept oil and gas out of Boulder County for five years. I was part of the emergency response to the 2013 floods, which included housing assistance and animal care. As the former president of Boulder Pride, now called Out Boulder, I stood up for civil rights and equality. In my career as a licensed pharmacist and former Medicaid Pharmacy Director for Colorado Access I initiated the beginnings of the modern Colorado Medicaid program, which increased healthcare access to tens of thousands of Coloradans.

Now, I am eager for the chance to serve our community in a bigger way. I will continue to tackle challenges ranging from protecting our community from fracking to helping working families afford healthcare and housing. If elected, I will be the only healthcare professional in the Colorado State Senate. As your Senator, I promise to have an open door for my constituents. Please join me to work for a state that is safe, fair, and inclusive place for all Coloradans.

Thank you for your support!

Voting Record

In the 2019 Legislative session we passed 455 bills with over 90% Bi-partisan support.  Here are just a few of the highlights from one of the most historic General Assembly Sessions.  I believe our Legislation will have a positive impact for all Coloradans!

Working with Senate District 17

Although we made great strides in 2019, there is always work to be done. Here are my plans to work with Eastern Boulder County and the rest of the state as the next Colorado State Senator from Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville, and Erie.
