Pikes Peak Habitat Congratulates New Colorado Springs Mayor Yemi Mobolade
Colorado Springs, CO (May 18, 2023)—After a runoff election May 16, Yemi Mobolade was voted in as the new Colorado Springs mayor. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity extends our congratulations to Mobolade, who 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 his years of service to the city and state. Addressing the affordable housing crisis takes all of us!
Both Mobolade and Williams, as well as the other 10 candidates in the general election, spoke at Pikes Peak Habitat's Mayoral Candidate Forum on Affordable Homeownership in February.
