2015 Boulder City Council Candidate: Lisa Morzel from City of Boulder on Vimeo.

Dear Friends,

I am running for re-election to the Boulder City Council and I am asking for your support.

I have been involved since 1988, first as a concerned neighbor, and now as a Boulder City Council member. Constituents know of my energy and attentiveness to their concerns. I have a track record for fairness, consistency, and reliance on democratic representation. I have been and will continue to be a voice for Boulder.

I want to finish what I helped initiate and I will continue to tackle the defining issues of this year’s election:

  1. Realize a municipality owned, service-oriented electric utility with more renewable energy and meeting incremental targets toward 80% greenhouse gas emission reductions by 2050.

  2. Prioritize and conduct area planning in a manner that focuses on community visions and desires. Public input should be a critical part of the final product. Let’s improve the process and really engage the public in the 2015 Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan update. Let’s discuss our future, current resources, our choices, the costs, and the potential long-term consequences.

  3. Prioritize workforce housing. Level the playing field in fairness and stability of home ownership for community members living in mobile homes. Develop a neighborhood process that considers granny flats, carriage houses, and cooperative housing.

  4. Guide the Open Space and Mountain Parks North Trail Study Area process to provide recognition and careful stewardship of natural resources while providing access, where appropriate, for passive recreation.

  5. Provide equitable access and eliminate barriers to social services, parks, libraries, and schools, cross walks, bike paths, and access to transit in all parts of Boulder. Make Boulder inclusive for all.

  6. Construct a north Boulder library and community center.

  7. Continue to maintain strong fiscal management with 16% reserves. Make costs of growth be commensurate with impacts. Ensure Boulder’s capital and operating needs like libraries, parks, and the arts are funded.

Please browse these pages to learn more about me and my candidacy. And be sure to like my Facebook page, Lisa Morzel Boulder City Council so you can easily provide comments or advice.

Let me know what is important to you and how you envision your issues being addressed.  What is your vision for Boulder? I welcome your advice, suggestions, volunteer time, and financial support.  Early contributions are critical to reaching voters.

The November 3rd election is by mail ballot.  Ballots will be sent to voters October 13-16.  As always, I will sign the Campaign Finance Reform Pledge limiting campaign contributions to no more than $100 per person and am abiding by campaign spending limits.

This is a group effort. You care about Boulder, your quality of life, and the future of Boulder. I urge you to get involved in this year’s city council campaign as well as several very important ballot issues.

I hope this website helps you understand more about me and my reasons for running again. I have a job to finish. I hope to hear from you soon and look forward to working with and for you.
