I am running for Boulder City Council so that our children have a chance to grow up in the same community we fell in love with in the first place. Boulder is incomparable. Its air fills our lungs with the encouragement to make the most out of each day. I’ve seen Boulder change in both good ways and bad in my sixteen years here. As I started my family I realized that most of my generation was priced out of living in Boulder. The youth and vibrancy that has defined Boulder for decades is evaporating. We are witnessing the decline of the young working family. We are also confronting a pivotal shift in the identity of Boulder, and trying to define what Boulder was, is and will be. We have made it a habit to set policy based on what we feel is good instead of what the data and goals point to as right. We have lessened our value of science and its impact on our country. As a scientist, this is unacceptable, and I know that lasting change starts at the local level. Being a steward of your community and the surrounding environment, leaving both better than you found it, is a lesson I learned early in life. As a father, husband, and passionate neighbor, I choose to serve my community. It’s time for our generation to lead the change we envision for the world, our country and our beautiful city of Boulder. I will do this, by putting our Future First.
