Welcome

State Senator Morgan Carroll
Senate District 29

Putting Your
Interests Above Special Interests!

I am proud to represent Senate District 29 (Aurora and eastern Arapahoe County) at the Capitol. The people of Arapahoe County do not want political partisanship or special interests controlling government. Rather they have asked for real, bi-partisan or non-partisan solutions to the issues facing all of us. I am committed to doing just that.

It is my goal to represent everyone in our District, whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent or defy traditional labels. Please know you are all welcome to contact me any time.  I would love to hear from you and I look forward to meeting you and am honored to be your voice at the Capitol.

"Contraception used to be an area of common ground," she says. "I can recall days when we were all fighting together to reduce teen pregnancy, to reduce abortions."

Morgan Carroll, the Democrats' leader in the state Senate, says she thinks her party will be united in favor of Becker's bill, and may be able to peel off a few Republican votes to push the funding through—so long as GOP leaders don't bring down "too hard of a hammer" on their caucus. "Contraception used to be an area of common ground," she says. "I can recall days when we were all fighting together to reduce teen pregnancy, to reduce abortions."
