Watch my exclusive one on one interview with United States Representative Jared Polis of Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District. It was my pleasure to host Rep. Polis on The Tim Caffrey Show as we discussed issues that are relevant to all Coloradans.
Since Congressman Polis is a strong advocate of education, I started the discussion by having him explain his tenure as a member of the Colorado Board of Education and his assistance with Amendment 23. We then discussed what his foundation (Jared Polis Foundation) is doing with regards to improving and expanding access to education. I then asked him to explain why he established The New America School system and how it contributes to the communities in which they are located.
I then moved the conversation to ask him why he ran for United States Congress in 2008 and how he is representing the constituents of Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District. From here, I asked him a series of questions that members of my audience have informed me they would like answered by politicians. Such as, what affect will Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) have on the Internet, or, what affect will Citizens United versus the Federal Election Commission have on the 2012 Presidential election, where are the jobs that were promised after the 2010 mid-term election, ensuring that Social Security and Medicare will be available and finally, if the Federal Budget deficit is so important, why isn’t anyone discussing the enormous waste in the Military Industrial Complex and how this money could have been better spent on states as they struggle to balance their budgets.
The discussion was intense and lively and I’m certain you will find interesting as well as informative.
