Boulder County, Colorado – 6/15/2022 – The East County Housing Opportunity Coalition and Together Colorado have teamed up to provide a candidate survey to Boulder County Commissioner Candidates, Elaina Shively and Ashley Stolzman on two important issues – mental health and affordable housing. As non-profit organizations, neither organization will endorse a candidate, but wanted to make the public aware of the candidates’ responses to questions about these important community issues. The public is invited to review the candidate responses to the questionnaires here: https://www.echocolorado.com/countycommissioners-questionnaire
County Commissioners play an important role since they act as both the Board of the Boulder County Housing Authority and the designated agency to provide mental health services. We encourage the public to review the responses from the candidates to our questionnaire.Candidate Questionnaire Answers

The East County Housing Opportunity Coalition envisions people having access to affordable, quality housing in the communities in which they work, study, and play. The unjust systems that prevent this are only altered by working together and demanding change. ECHO strives to bring people together to educate and self-empower our communities so this can become a reality. We work in Longmont, Erie, Lafayette, Louisville, and Superior.
