Emily Tracy runs for State Senate District 8

Emily Tracy launched her campaign to run for the Colorado State Senate, District 8 on Monday, Feb. 22.

Tracy is running to provide real leadership to the Western Slope and to improve our public schools, strengthen the rural economy, and defend our water and natural resources, she stated in her press release.

“This is an important time for our community, and Senate District 8 needs someone with competence and sound judgment to represent everyday people who work hard and play by the rules. My opponent has failed to do that. If you harbor a sex offender in our community and then persistently vote – in opposition to your own party even – against protecting those victims, (Source: Denver Post 6/16/12, HB 11-1278, SB 14-059, SB 13-220, SB 13-012, HB 13-1271) you’re unfit to serve. That’s just inexcusable.”

Tracy is running on her record of child advocacy and to bring common sense back to the district.

Senate District 8 is on Colorado’s Western Slope and encompasses the counties of Garfield, Grand, Jackson, Moffat, Routt, Ro Blanco, and Summit. Randy Baumgardner currently holds the seat and is running for his second term.
