Touring flood damages with Jamestown Mayor Shoedinger and Sen. Udall
It’s been a true honor to serve as your Boulder County Commissioner these past few years – and I would welcome the opportunity to continue to work for you one more term.
Together we have achieved much in the last three years, including responding to the devastating September 2013 flood disaster, strengthening the safety net for those still recovering from the economic recession, and safeguarding more of our world-class open space, to name just a few accomplishments.
But there’s still so much to be done, from climate change mitigation to affordable housing to better transportation choices. I’m eager to work with you to tackle these challenges and ensure that Boulder County stays a wonderful place to live, work and play.
For Boulder County,

Appreciate CDOT Director Shailen Bhatt coming to Boulder for a Transportation Town Hall so we could tell him about Boulder County's multi-modal transportation priorities: more transportation funding, especially for transit; bus rapid transit options on State Hwy 119 and 7; increased bike and pedestrian connections & safety; closer partnership & engagement with CDOT, to name a few!

Touring the Cold Springs Fire site with Rep. Jared Polis, Nederland trustees, Commissioner Gardner and the Forest Service. Very sobering to hear fire officials say: "It's a miracle we didn't lose hundreds of homes." THANK YOU to all of our firefighters!

Great to cut the ribbon marking the completion of flood recovery repairs at Salina Junction in Fourmile Canyon! Thank you to the neighbors who have been so patient and the crew who did such a great job with construction of the new culvert and beautiful local rock walls.
