I'll work hard to represent YOU in Congress!
Will you join my campaign?
Brittany Pettersen is a lifelong Coloradan who has lived in Jefferson County nearly her entire life. Brittany is running for Congress because Colorado families who already have it tough are under assault by President Trump and the Republican Congress, who are destroying the lifelines families need to create better lives for themselves.
Unlike the politicians in Washington, Brittany knows first-hand the challenges facing Colorado families, and she knows what it takes to overcome those obstacles. Raised in a family that struggled with substance abuse and economic hardship, Brittany had to grow up fast and help raise her two younger brothers. She started working at the age of 12 cleaning houses and took odd jobs whenever they were available to get by. She’s been working hard ever since.
Despite these challenges, Brittany became the first member of her family to graduate from high school and college, working two jobs to pay the way. Brittany knows that much of her success can be attributed to the great teachers and schools in Jefferson County. She understands the importance of a strong public education because of the opportunities Jeffco schools provided for her.
While Donald Trump and his followers in Washington continue their assault on Obamacare, Medicaid, our public schools, and try to turn the economy over to Goldman Sachs, Brittany has been working to put more Coloradans on the path to a secure middle class life.
Brittany has dedicated her life and career to fighting for regular people and ensuring that opportunity is available to all Coloradans. She has become a leader in education, sponsoring legislation to support our most vulnerable kids and help more Colorado families afford college. Brittany understands the challenges that working families face and has sponsored bills to help parents find affordable childcare and save for retirement.
In addition to educational and economic opportunity, she is also a leader on women’s issues, passing laws to protect a woman’s right to choose and make her own healthcare decisions. Brittany has also worked to improve transparency in state government so that Coloradans know how their tax dollars are spent.
“The threat from Donald Trump and the Republicans in Congress is real. We need leaders in Washington that understand tough times and what it takes to overcome those challenges. I will stand up to Donald Trump and make sure regular people have a voice.”
