Hon. Gail Schwartz

Senator Schwartz has a distinguished legislative record in education, water, natural resources and energy. Her legislation helped build Colorado’s New Energy Economy to diversify and expand Colorado’s “all the above” energy portfolio which continues to create jobs and investment. Gail is widely known as a champion for social justice and for tirelessly promoting the quality of life and economic interests of rural Colorado. One of her key legislative achievements is the “BEST Bill” — Building Excellent Schools Today — which has built over $1.25 Billion of new K-12 schools, revived civic pride, and jump-started the economies of rural communities throughout Colorado. As a resident of the Western Slope for over forty years, Gail continues to dedicate herself to making Western and Southern Colorado the best possible place to live, work, raise a family, and educate our children.
