Our Guiding Principles

We believe in these principals that guide our actions.
  • We believe in promoting economic relief, growth, and success for
    Colorado people and businesses.
  • We believe that all Coloradans should have equitable access to
    educational and economic opportunities.

    youth violence by creating opportunity that leads to
    future community leaders and a huge social impact.

    state.

Legislation2023 Bills Passed

Our legislative priorities over the next four years will focus on three key areas: eliminating the Black wealth gap, decreasing prison recidivism, and ending youth violence. These goals are both ambitious and achievable, as proven by our office's accomplishments over the last 8 years. We have passed a number of bills in these areas - developing and bolstering multiple programs within the CO Dept. of Corrections, improving transitions for Colorado's high school students, creating a $30 million business startup loan fund, and more.

The 2023 Legislative Session concluded June, 2023. It was a strong session for Team Coleman and our efforts to improve the lives of people across
Colorado. You can click on the bill to learn more of the positive impacts of the legislation. We are grateful for our team, for our cabinets, for constituents
who came to testify, wrote letters, and made phone calls. We are honored to work alongside our colleagues in the Senate and House chambers who worked tirelessly on all of these
bills.

Democracy Over Division

"Fighting over issues and not getting things done isn't democracy. Democracy is making sure the train gets there on time, and the ship is steered in the right direction, because policies are passed to accomplish action and produce an outcome. That is our job, and the only thing we can do as legislators." - Senator James Coleman
"A common complaint of citizens is that Washington never gets anything done, because all they do is fight. We legislators get a vote because you voters elected us to have one; and great policy can get passed that changes lives. But too often that's not happening because of filibustering or one party running bills and sending them to die in a kill committee. That's not democracy. That's a threat to democracy. We need to be able to debate and hear, so we can ultimately make an advised decision that's best for the majority even when it's uncomfortable.. because not everyone is going to agree. But, in part, that goes back to leadership and the ability to listen, to understand, and to build consensus. That is what voters have hired us to do so that we can achieve an outcome. We need to get back to the understanding that respectful disagreement is ok but we need to sit down and talk and listen. Too often, that's not happening because leaders are afraid of the aesthetics and the assumptions that could be made when those who think and vote differently sit down together. That's not right, and there is a movement happening to get back to the basics of democracy. We've been politically correct; now it's time to produce results. Those who really care about protecting democracy don't care about a party line. They care about the people and the government that represents them are doing what they promised. Data shows that Colorado is made up of roughly 30% Democrats, 30% Republicans, and 40% Unaffiliated voters. I strongly believe I was elected to represent all of them." - Senator James Coleman

Creating the Change We Want to See In the WorldWhy We Started

Senator Coleman and his team have lent their expertise, time, and action to strengthen Colorado’s recovery, make resources more accessible, and create opportunities for more people to get ahead. We understand that stronger and safer communities, a thriving economy, and affordability for the hard-working people of Colorado are top of mind for us all. A rising cost of living, an economy that doesn’t work for everyone with jobs that don’t pay a living wage, an education system that doesn’t meet the needs of all our students, and a criminal justice system that profits from keeping our families and communities separated and incarcerated are just a few of the issues Senator Coleman has worked tirelessly to improve during his time in office. Adding to the challenges, many of us are trying our best to set our kids up for success while also providing for our aging parents who are facing unaffordable health care and the rising cost of living.

We’re Here To Help

Team Coleman is committed to serving all folks who call our communities home; and our role as a liaison between our community members and federal agencies is often our most consequential responsibility. An accomplished legislator, what Senator Coleman loves most about the job is governance: protecting democracy. Amidst a lot of talking and promise, Senator Coleman gets it done and his track record shows it.
