Arapahoe County Commissioner
Idris is a husband, a father, and an attorney. He has previously worked as a probation officer and in the area of equal employment opportunity, which included a fair employment practices agency. He supports working families and re-building a strong middle class.
He is running because we need a new direction in leadership. Last year, the incumbent commissioner proposed a $464 million property tax hike to fund a new county jail. There was no effort to address criminal justice reform or otherwise issues of greater priority for the citizens of this county.
We can, and must, do better. This is one of the many issues that led Idris to run for office.
We are facing an increase in the “isms” that have divided this nation for hundreds of years. We must opposed institutional racism and the subtle relatives of bigotry and injustice.
As a probation officer, Idris used the office to ensure that all probationers were given an opportunity to secure employment and to provide for themselves in a manner that was maximized to prevent recidivist.
As an Investigator with a contractor for the DC Human Rights Commission, he investigated claims of discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations. His entire professional history embodies an ongoing quest to seek justice for those who have been discriminated against because the lack political and economic power.
