Colorado Springs Mayoral Candidate Forum on Affordable Homeownership

Update: PikesPeakHabitat congratulates Yemi Mobolade, the new Colorado Springs mayor! We look forward to working with you to increase affordable homeownership opportunities for local workforce families.

Mobolade has vowed to immediately start working to “fully staff the police department and end the city's homelessness, prioritize infrastructure needs, add more affordable and attainable housing, and cut red tape for new businesses” when he takes office on June 6. "Let's get to work!" he said. "I promise to be a mayor of all people."

We also thank Mobolade's opponent Wayne Williams for Colorado for your years of service to the city and state, and we hope to continue partnering with you, too. Addressing the housing crisis takes all of us!
