Raised in Colorado in a family that experienced significant economic hardship, Ruby started working at the age of 14 to help put food on the table. Motivated by her experience, Ruby buckled down, studying hard in Colorado’s public schools, leveraging her education into a degree in economics at Oxford University. Now, she works as a professional economist helping to reduce poverty and ensuring that people everywhere have access to clean air, land, and water.
Ruby is proud of her charity work, helping to lift people out of poverty. Now, she wants to take that same approach to the Capitol-- bringing the passion of a reformer, the analytical skills of an economist, and the perspective of an ordinary working-class Coloradan to the legislature. If elected, Ruby will work tirelessly to support public education, bring down the cost of living, and protect reproductive rights here in Colorado.
