by Jessie Ulibarri for Colorado on Monday, August 13, 2012 at 8:56pm ·
Jessie Ulibarri is the Democratic candidate for State Senate District (SD) 21 in Adams County, Colorado. Born and raised in SD 21, Jessie spent his earliest years of life in a trailer park and became the first member of his family to graduate from a four-year college. In turn, his education allowed him to spend the last 10 years promoting policies that safeguard opportunity and fairness: ending predatory payday lending practices, raising the state minimum wage and protecting vital resources for our schools. As a 3rd generation Adams County resident and a working dad raising two kids, Jessie knows the struggles of the people of this district and is committed to finding solutions to our shared concerns.
