Running for CU Regent CO District 8 VOTE ON JUNE 28, 2022 🗳
I was the first in my family to go to a university so I can relate with the first generation students of today. There should be more programs and opportunities to help these studnets who may not know what to expect and may have more challenges than their peers. As a regent I will do my best to help these students succeed. #firstgen #college #election
Gun responsibility is an essential issue most places today, but especially on a college campus. These issues need to be taken seriously and regents have the power to do something about it. Students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community should not have to live in fear they will be next. #gunresponibity #election #colorado
The University of Colorado is such a special institution. With its four campuses there is certainly something for everyone and for no campus to be prioritized over any other. I will always make decisions considering the many perspectives on the four campuses and I will be a regent for everyone. #colorado #election #2022
Quite a Day in Commerce City participating in the Memorial Day Parade! During my walk, I thought of my Dad, CMSGT Andrew Ortega. He gave up so much to serve his country and he did it with a full commitment! He served in WWII, Korea and in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam. My Dad inspired me to chose education as my vocation. He was one of millions who protected us and are now laid to rest. We honor you all! Mil Gracias!
As a CU regent, I will be all about choice. I believe faculty should be able to build their curriculum to best teach students. Academic excellences something I will always support and it is incredibly important to me that CU can be the best option for academic excellence. #denver #boulder #coloradosprings #coloradosprings #westminster
