Before Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne was appointed as Hickenlooper’s side-kick, her political experience included hiding under a rock for like, the last three decades.
How else to explain her sudden realization and devotion to the issue of affordable housing? Which, by the way, will last four days and only includes a few affected communities.
“Lynne has traveled to all 64 counties, and she knows affordable housing is not just a Front Range issue, but one that is being grappled with by people in communities throughout Colorado,” according to a statement from her campaign.
campaign stunt affordable housing discussions are scheduled for Denver, Boulder, and Pueblo, then up to Cañon City and over to Grand Junction.
Only a handful of ski areas, where locals are hard hit by high rents, merit a visit — Steamboat Springs and Carbondale. She will also visit Glenwood Springs on her return trip.
Eagle, Summit and San Miguel Counties are just a few of the toughest places to find affordable housing that Lynne will skip.
The affordable housing crisis has only worsened under a continuous stream of Democratic governors, so what can we expect from Lynne?
Lynne said she plans to use the input gathered during the tour to inform the upcoming release of a longer position paper on the topic.
In other words, nothing. Just a repositioning of a failed position.
