On Nov. 7, Boulderites will elect their city’s mayor for the first time, using ranked-choice voting. With five of nine city council seats up for grabs, the majority on the council is also at stake this year.
Even more than the historic mayoral election, the potential overhaul of city council gives Boulderites an opportunity to influence Boulder’s future at a crucial time. In addition to long-standing concerns about land use and housing, recent years have brought additional issues to the forefront of Boulder’s political conversation: homelessness, mental health and addiction services, the future of policing, and challenges related to crime and public safety.
