From the Editorial Advisory Board: 2017 (Part 1) – Boulder Daily Camera

If I awoke in Bizarro Boulder, where suddenly common sense reigned and I ruled supreme, here are the first steps I’d take to inject some badly needed sanity into the city’s operations: …

Declare the recently passed co-op ordinance dead on arrival and reverse the decision. This is a slow-motion Folsom Fiasco redux in the making, and ever-politically astute Lisa Morzel’s fears of recall efforts are well-founded…

Step up enforcement of vagrancy violations and wind down the funding of existing “homeless” programs that only serve to invite more problems than they solve.

Declare a total moratorium on “cash-in-lieu” buyouts by developers of their subsidized (“affordable”) housing requirements.

I would, however, keep Boulder’s new sanctuary city policy, which means I can’t be asked where I’m from (in my case, the unincorporated county). Finally! Now I can run for the City Council.
