Adam moved to Boulder to attend CU in 2006, and has worked hard to stay here ever since. He’s worked two jobs since graduation, and has seen firsthand the monetization of housing after renting for 10 years. He now owns a small condo, and is committed to bridging the gap in Boulder between the housing opportunities that are growing between the lower, middle and upper-income brackets. Adam is keenly aware of Boulder’s loss of middle and low-income residents, and the call to densify the City with the misguided hope that more supply will mean better housing opportunities for all. He will work hard to attain more affordable housing for middle and lower-income residents alike, and expand the rights and protections of renters so they too have equal access to the enjoyments of living in Boulder. Adam served as Chair of Boulder’s Housing Advisory Board, and as such concluded that only through making development pay for its impact, will we ever provide affordability for lower income workers.
The one main factor that kept Adam here in Boulder was its beautiful open space. He has a deep love for it, enjoys using it, and will fight to protect it for our future generations. He feels it’s the heart of Boulder, and what makes it unique from almost anywhere else.
Adam is ready to stand up to corporate and special interests who would overwhelm our community’s voice. He also believes the existing community engagement process needs a revamp so the community is considered before the decisions are made.
