Our family moved from Boulder to Longmont due to the character of the community and the potential of the city of Longmont. The city of Longmont has unmatched services and an excellent utility system.
The Envision Longmont Plan and the Affordable Housing ordinance adopted two years ago assures Longmont’s growth will be sustainable and equitable. Real solutions to affordable housing issues do not come from government-issued mandates or charitable giving from the private sector. Tim Waters displayed incredible leadership and passion in those efforts in order to gain input and buy-in from all parties and residents impacted by the changes. Yes, Longmont has the tools and resources to become an even better and more inclusive community. Tim’s leadership, energy and experience will maximize our potential to capitalize upon our resources to secure a bright, equitable and sustainable future.
Tim is passionate about our community. He truly wants to raise all ships and ensure that Longmont’s future is bright. I respect his integrity, character and willingness to learn new things. His leadership will help to ensure that we all thrive together, one community, one Longmont. I encourage others to vote for Tim Waters for Mayor.
