Black History Month: Rep. Leslie Herod is an unapologetic champion
State Rep. Leslie Herod is my legislative spirit animal. Unapologetic about her work, yet fully committed to making things happen and willing to cross party lines to get the job done.
She’s is a champion of the people. Crafting legislation that focuses on the folks who are often forgotten or mislabeled. Like many other Americans, she was raised by a single mother who was dedicated to her career as an OB/GYN and inevitably pushed a young Rep. Herod into becoming a caretaker. She grew up with a half-sister who bounced in and out of incarceration. Despite all of this, she’s shaping up to be a Colorado politics rising star and ended up with a brother who’s now a doctor.
