Two unanimous Boulder City Council decisions within two months of each other illuminate a deep-seated ambivalence about city priorities.
A steering committee member of “Better Boulder” recently posted on Facebook that a Boulder of 250,000 people (from our current 109,000) “would be awesome.” Many people are very unhappy with the direction this city is going in and want to see balance restored to City Council.
Cha Cha Spinrad: I live in a co-op and strive to have my life entirely encompassed by cooperatives. I also support Jan Burton. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She doesn’t care about maintaining her seat — she cares about positive impact while sitting in it. Last point: Jill Grano rocks.
Michelle Estrella: Burton walks the talk with diversity and will champion our tax dollars. McIntrye will take care of open space and understand small business. Grano is a breath of fresh air and wicked smart about housing. Rigler and Budd will keep our streets safe.
