LOWER THE COST OF LIVING
The cost of living in Colorado is soaring. Our population is booming. And with an increasing populace comes congested transportation systems and increased infrastructure costs. Right now the average person pays $600 more a year in car repairs due to the state of our roads and bridges than they would if our leaders hadn’t neglected our infrastructure. Mix all of those factors with a skyrocketing real estate market and harmful construction defects laws and we have a serious problem. To combat the increase in the cost of living we must:
- Repeal the 1980 ban on rent control measures in Colorado.
- Broker a bipartisan, omnibus bill to reform our construction defect laws and lure credible, trusted developers to begin building in Colorado again. The piecemeal approach to solving this problem is a day late and a dollar short.
- Generate new public/private real estate development projects to build good affordable housing that emphasizes mixing all incomes and walks of life in the same communities.
- Invest in our infrastructure to increase the speed of production and lower costs for businesses and citizens while stimulating the economy with good paying, blue collar jobs.
