I am honored to represent House District 36 in the Colorado General Assembly. This district encompasses east Aurora and several neighborhoods in unincorporated Arapahoe County. It’s a large, diverse district that includes Buckley Air Force Base, Community College of Aurora, Aurora Central Library, Aurora Sports Park, Southlands Mall, Aurora Reservoir, Arapahoe County Fairgrounds and Arapahoe Park racetrack.
We have two K-12 school districts—Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Public Schools—and the Community College of Aurora. Major economic drivers include the aerospace and defense industries, bioscience, renewable energy research and manufacturing, tourism and healthcare.
My legislative priorities are families, jobs and small business. I am committed to working with our military community at Buckley AFB, and helping our veterans. It’s important that we provide opportunities for good jobs and quality education for everyone, not just the super wealthy.
Every month, I host coffees and townhalls in various locales in the district. All are invited to attend, so watch this space for updates, and please add your name to my email list. I welcome your ideas and feedback, so please feel free to contact me at any time. During the legislative session reach me at Rep.firstname.lastname@example.org or during the interim reach me at Su@suryden.com.
Whether you’re part of a group or on your own, you are welcome to visit me at the Capitol anytime. Just call 303-866-2942 and arrange a time.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you.
