Brianna Titone, incumbent candidate for House District 27
Profession: Scientist, Software Developer
What makes you the best choice for this office?
I have proven to the people of the district that I care. We spoke to thousands of people in both 2018 and 2020 to learn what the people wanted. In office I worked hard to deliver on what was asked of me, and by solving problems brought to me by constituents. I never turn away anyone with a reasonable request. I communicate with constituents in a transparent and authentic way. While some may not share my opinions or points of view, I give everyone the chance to have a conversation. This is the people's district, and I always listen.
If elected, what would your top issue be?
My top issues are the top issues I hear about from constituents. We've found that this year, the top tissue in the district is education funding, which I will work to keep strong. I also intend to continue to work on mental health access and suicide prevention.
If elected, what would you want to accomplish in order for you to consider the term a success?
My goal has always been to create an environment in which the citizens of Jefferson County and Colorado as a whole have the best chance to succeed in their goals. I want to be able to truly say that my constituents’ lives are better as a result of my efforts.
Your view on TABOR reform efforts?
The efforts to reform TABOR are necessary if we are to remain prosperous. The deficits of funding in education and transportation will have negative effects on our livelihoods if we continue to neglect these things. The COVID-19 pandemic showed us that under TABOR, we don't have the ability to be nimble in an emergency. We need to have the flexibility to react to problems we face. There’s a reason that we are the only state to have such a law- it’s because nobody else wants it.
The Red Flag law went into effect this year. Has it been a good law, and would you change anything?
I think that the small number of times it's been used means that it is a valid and measured way to keep people safe without overstepping the government's authority. We have a serious issue with suicide and also domestic abuse. We want to see less victims, and the evidence shows that the red flag law helps us achieve that.
