(Dillon, CO – Nov. 3, 2020) -Voters of House District 61 have re-elected Julie McCluskie to the Colorado House of Representatives. McCluskie was first elected to the seat in November 2018.
“Tonight’s outcome is a victory for the working people and families who care about protecting our Colorado way of life. Coloradans expect bold leadership and demand that we tackle tough issues with honesty and integrity. Our win speaks to these values and to the priorities so many of us share for protecting public lands, air and water; for providing access to high-quality health care and for making sure every child is on a path to a successful life with a world class public education.
It is a tremendous honor to once again earn the confidence of voters in this district. I am committed to bipartisanship in tackling Colorado’s challenges and to making sure state government serves all of us in fair and equitable ways. Now more than ever, I believe serving the public means listening and learning from constituents and representing their hopes for better opportunities to lead happy, productive lives.
My heart is filled with gratitude for my family, campaign staff, volunteers, and voters who have been a part of this year’s campaign. This is a moment of celebration for all of us.”
McCluskie has served on the Education, Rural Affairs & Agriculture, Wildfire Matters, Early Childhood and School Readiness and School Finance committees during her first term. She was appointed to the Joint Budget Committee and Chair of Appropriations this past session. Her notable accomplishments include passing the Reinsurance Program and Health Insurance Affordability Enterprise, expanding the Wildfire Mitigation Grant program, and numerous early childhood education bills, including referring Proposition EE to voters for universal preschool funding. Providing economic stimulus and recovery support, taking care of the working people and families hardest hit by the pandemic and stabilizing the state’s budget are her top priorities into her second term.
