We have enjoyed being Old Town residents for 16 years. It is our historic and cultural center. It’s the foundation of our sense of place. We believe City Council District 1 candidate Nate Budd represents a thoughtful, balanced approach to the issues facing our entire community as well as issues directly facing District 1.
Nate Budd has lived in the community for a decade. He has made a concerted effort to get involved in our community by being involved in University Connections, by serving on the boards of Homeless Prevention Initiative and now Neighbor to Neighbor and by getting a broad perspective on community issues by serving on the Coloradoan editorial board.
Nate Budd is a smart, articulate alumnus of CSU who understands the triple bottom line of environmental stewardship, economic vitality and social sustainability.
We will be supporting and voting for Nate Budd for City Council District 1 because his opponent, the incumbent, has consistently demonstrated loyalty to a very small but vocal constituency out of sync with the vast majority of Fort Collins citizens. This was most evident in April 2015 when the incumbent was on the wrong side of the Building On Basics tax issue, which passed with over 80 percent of voters in favor. District 1 deserves better representation. Please vote for Nate Budd.
Dave and Paula Edwards, Fort Collins
