Boulder has tremendous assets, but too often they go underutilized due to an overbearing regulatory beast - a beast who can open bear proof containers http://www.icrpd.net/pest-control-in-porterville-ca/

I am running for council because I see a dire need for leadership with the proper perspective to understand the intricate interrelationship between our environmental, social, and economic goals. In that vein, I offer my endorsements for your consideration.
- Kevin Hotaling
To those whom I have not endorsed: I genuinely enjoyed the process, appreciate the chance to get to know you personally and look forward to seeing you around town.
That Kid with the Videos- Well, of course you'll want to vote for me, but I'll provide some additional motivation for those who think I'm "too young" (or my other favorite "not politically well-connected enough").
� I give a voice to the 74% of Boulder that is under the age of 45, which is infinitely important considering that we live in the most rapidly changing political, economic and social times the world has ever seen. My background in technology and philosophy also help make me uniquely positioned to lay the groundwork for the success of our younger residents.
C. Fenno Hoffman the Great ... 'er the III - Fenno relentlessly paints a beautiful picture of the future of our built environment. He will ask (and answer) the tough questions about development while simultaneously using his dry humor to bump City Council up to C-Span's second most popular show, just behind PMQ's.
� A true visionary, this guy is going to be the Al Bartlett of the 21st century ... and that III in his name means that his ancestors were hangin' with our founding fathers, which must make him wise.
Barry the Community Organizer - Barry gives so much back to the Boulder athletic community and social fabric, it brings a tear to my eye to think that an evil capitalist could so thoroughly destroy the notion of evil capitalist.
� He's the pragmatist and networker of my power three, so let's get him in to get things done. He also has no problem calling a colleague out on BS, which we most definitely need at times.
� P.S. The nickname carries no political connotation (national politics is a whole different game), it just fit so nicely.
Mother Suzy - We all could use mother's guidance at times, and Suzy reminds me of the ever thoughtful Mrs. Hotaling. They're both well-reasoned, compassionate and have the same haircut.
� Resemblance aside, Suzy knows the city issues and is exceptional at synthesizing competing interests. I don't always agree with her conclusions, but mother and I embrace our differences too.
Father George - Just as Suzy fulfills my need for motherly understanding, George provides the fatherly wisdom.
� After pouring 25 years of blood, sweat, and tears into the Boulder business community (figuratively, I think), George knows what's up with it and has the solutions to resucitate a faltering economy.
� Some argue (correctly) that we've fared the recession better than most, but George knows that we haven't done nearly as well as we could.
The Mappelnator - All bow before the almightly Mappelnator. Don't let his unshakably casual attitude deceive you, this is the knower of everything Boulder and ultimate provider of practical wisdom.
� Matt offers an important voice for environmental and social legs of our entertainingly named "sustainable stool," but he seems to enjoy taxation just a bit more than I would like.
Kid Crusader - KC is constantly highlighting the lack of representation for young families, much as I'm concerned about the perpetual oversight of the needs of the young professional and collegiate populations.
� Her creative and open-minded approach to city issues defies classification and is desperately needed.
� She's also in contention for best looking of the lot, which tends to be a good predictor of national political races, oddly enough.
