The Legislature needs to prioritize cost of living and skyrocketing crime

By Representative Dan Woog

While the people of Colorado have been crying out for the last year at the rising prices and impact that inflation is having on their cost of living, many of our elected representatives have done nothing to actually fix the problem. 

Hardworking families should not have to worry if they will be able to afford the same tank of gas and groceries they did just last month. To add to the stress working-class families are feeling, crime is continuing to rise each month and kids are struggling to recover from pandemic-education losses. 

As your representative, I introduced legislation to reduce the cost of living and make it easier for families to live, work, and thrive here. During the last legislative session, I watched Democrats reject common-sense bills that would have passed savings directly to taxpayers and reduced the cost of living in Colorado. The majority party failed to address the concerns of Coloradans and did very little to help the pain of businesses and families who continue to struggle across the state. 

Two years ago I ran for State Representative to serve you, the people of this district, because I shared in your frustrations of how our state was being governed; that has not changed. The increasing cost of living and skyrocketing crime will continue to be a priority for me in the state legislature.

I will always be a voice for all of the hard-working families and individuals across the 19th district who are wondering if they can afford another year of this, and will remain committed to my constituents and our great state. It has been an honor to represent you in the Colorado House of Representatives and to fight every day for common-sense policies that will benefit your everyday lives during this challenging time.
