Joanna Rotkin - Independent Dance Artist working in Boulder

I'm supporting Nikki McCord because of her commitment to listening to and understanding how communities, especially marginalized ones, will be directly impacted by any policy decision the council is considering, before deciding on how she will vote for it.

As well, I'm supporting Nikki McCord because of her ability to engage with honesty, integrity, and imagination in conversations and situations that are heated, complex, and nuanced.


Bob Kanick - 25-year Boulder resident, parent

"I’m voting for Nikki because she understands how good government works. She knows that city council should be about solutions and compromise and not positions and inaction.”

I’m voting for Nikki because she’ll put marginalized communities at the forefront of city council decisions. This includes expanding affordable housing, while making it work for our city and its residents. As cost of living goes up, we need to ensure that we’re providing a safe and welcoming community for everyone in Boulder. I believe Nikki will fight to do just that.
