HBA PAC Endorsed Candidates – April 2023 Election
Ballots will be in the mail around March 10, so we ask you to share the HBA voter guide and use it when filling out your ballot.
On April 4, the City will have a municipal election to elect a new mayor and fill three at-large council seats for four-year teams and the remaining two years for Council District 3. City Council also referred a question to the ballot to extend the Trails, Open Space and Parks (TOPS) sales and use tax for 20 years with no increase to the tax.
We say that each election is critical to the future of our City and region. With a new mayor and multiple council seats up for grabs, the direction of Colorado Springs—and how the City will address housing, development, water, and other critical issues—is a significant concern. As you know, access to attainable housing is probably the most pressing issue facing our local governments. It’s estimated that El Paso County and Colorado Springs will need more than 80,000 new housing units over the coming decades to meet current demand.
That’s why we need an informed and dedicated City government to work together to provide housing—whether that’s master-planned communities or infill developments. Without housing, we cannot grow our local economy and attract new jobs to the City and region. It’s also critical since the HBA’s members and the building industry as a whole represent thousands of high-quality, good-paying jobs that fuel the local economy.
To help ensure that our members and those involved with the home building industry are well informed, CSHBA Political Action Committee’s members diligently researched and vetted candidates running for mayor and council to make recommendations that reflect the values and principles of our industry. We believe that each endorsed candidate shares the HBA’s positions on attainable housing, job creation, and building the American Dream. This work performed by the PAC members, embodied in the attached Election Guide, has become a long-standing service provided to HBA members and our industry. It demonstrates our vital role in protecting and enhancing our local economy and business climate.
Please distribute the voter guide to as many employees, subcontractors, and vendors. It’s vital we encourage everyone to vote!
