Meet Jared Polis
Jared Polis is a self-made entrepreneur who has dedicated his life to expanding opportunity for Colorado families. Now he's running for governor to turn bold ideas into real results for every family in Colorado — with free full-day preschool and kindergarten, affordable high-quality health care for every family, and good-paying jobs in every community across our state.
I support allowing cities and counties to raise the minimum wage, providing paid family medical leave, and ensuring equal pay for equal work
In the absence of national leadership from the White House, it is up to states like Colorado to chart our course for energy freedom.
Let’s just get right down to it: Health care is a human right. Treating an illness or injury should never be a luxury afforded only to the wealthy few who can afford it.
Keeping Colorado wild means resisting the urge to stand idly by as attempts are made to diminish access to our lands.

We should continue to demand action from Congress. But there is also a lot we can do right here, right now to save lives in Colorado.
To create more opportunities for people to live a good life, we can’t just throw money at old problems without any new solutions.
“I know that by working together, we can preserve what makes Colorado special while building an economy that works for everyone.”
– Jared Polis, Democrat for Governor
