“I am excited and I enthusiastically endorse Tracy Kraft-Tharp to become my House District 29 State Representative. Over the several years I have known her, she has demonstrated knowledge, leadership, and a keen sense of democracy. Tracy has an acute comprehension of policy and it’s impacts on people from her work in nonprofits in our community. She bridged the chasm between what should be available and what is lacking with creativity and conviction. I have witnessed her care and compassion towards others in such activities as the food drive for the Arvada Food Bank and the Toy Drive for the Santa House. As she volunteered at the Santa House, I observed how encouraging and generous she was with those families who were able to receive help. Tracy has mentored and enabled others to participate in the process which is the best expression of team building and leadership. Tracy is the right woman for the job.”  – Jane Banzin
