Yet another interesting Drinking Liberally evening. You can't go wrong by starting the night with an ice cold Stella and Deep Dish pizza.
This evening's guest was Angela Engel, who is running for the State Representative seat for HD 37 (Centennial).
Wasn't prepared for the dynamo that is Angela Engel. Determined, feisty and confident, Angela is focusing on :
* Economic Development
Why is Angela running? She felt she had no other choice. Upon discovering there was no Democratic candidate that wanted to run, Angela tried to find potential candidates. When that didn't work, she decided to take up the challenge. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is!
And that's not the first time that Angela's stepped up to the plate. Quoting from her website :
"Angela’s service to children began in 1991 with her founding of University Kids Club, a mentoring and tutoring program for at-risk youth in Denver Public Schools. As an educator, Angela taught in Douglas County Schools and served as high school instructor and Academic Director for the “Denver Street Schools” – a privately funded, alternative high school providing a “last chance” education to inner city students. In addition, she created and implemented staff development trainings for 45 National Street Schools".
Angela was also the citizen lobbyist for HD 1289, known as the 'Parent's Choice' bill.
As a 4th generation Colorado resident, Angela has seen Centennial blossom as a city and has concrete ideas on how to improve the lives of those in her district as well as in the state of Colorado.

If you're fed up with status quo, you need to get on board with Angela.
