Like you, I am upset by the unilateral warmongering actions of the impeached president. The American people do not want war with Iran. I urge you to contact US legislators from Colorado and share your concerns.
I'm honored to have endorsements by Colorado Senator Jeanne Nicholson and United States Congressman David Skaggs. Jeanne represented the 16th District from 2011 to 2015. David represented the 2nd District from 1987 to 1999. Thank you Jeanne and David!
Solutions to Homelessness in Boulder
I attended the Boulder City Council meeting on Tuesday to hear a report by the city's Committee on Homelessness. The committee offered specific data and described an impressive collaboration between the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, Bridge House, Attention Homes, the police department and others. These folks are working together to help unhoused community members with both immediate and longer term needs.
I appreciated learning more about the intricacies of solving this issue, and clearly we still have a long way to go. I'm particularly concerned about improving mental health services. The Boulder community came out last night to support keeping the emergency shelter open year round. Many who attended also questioned the morality and legality of the camping ban.
