Dr. Stephany Rose Spaulding | Gaining Momentum

Born on Chicago’s Southside in 1978, her family and her faith community played important roles in the formation of her core beliefs. Her day-to-day life centers upon the charge to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8.) One result of this is her firm belief that what we really need in government are people willing to sacrifice and treat others right, and with respect.

What is your plan since the election season is over?

I plan to continue serving our community. An elected office is just one pathway of doing that. Ever since my arrival to Colorado Springs, I’ve promoted causes that were important to me. There are amazing people in office, as well as initiatives that are before us that are transforming Colorado Springs. There’s a lot of great things that will continue to come out of that. My influence and work for others have not stopped just because I was not elected.

Where are you headed from here?

Championing  people  in  the   community who are stepping up and taking charge. Asia Sanders saw herself as a student, a  mother,  and  a  volunteer for somebody’s campaign but there was a gap in her house district, and  she  decided  to  run. Even though it was scary, she dared to step out in faith to do it.

We need to encourage and amplify those who are taking steps to do the work, so others can find the courage themselves to get involved. Whatever area that interest them, whether that’s in the arts or whether that’s in business. What Rodney Gullatte is doing for entrepreneurship and businesses, We need that, and we need to support one another. I think this will help bring more people into the conversation to amplify their voices.

 I am continuing to do the work that was before me. I am just trying to become more diverse and inclusive here in Colorado Springs, as well as throughout the state.

What are some key things you learned throughout this process?

 There is so much work to do, with very few of us seeing the depth and complexity of the issues that are facing us. Affordable housing and opioid addictions are concerns that still need to be address.     We need more people to be involved. It’s not just about electoral politics. We need to have younger voices on TV, sitting on boards, and at the city level. One of the things that    I learned the most is that everybody might talk about what needs to happen, but very few people want to get out and do the work to make it happen.

What’s the solution?
