Of course, if there was more political involvement of progressive minded folks, the balance of power can shift as the Springs is now. Higher voter turnout typically leads to left leaning candidates and initiatives winning elections.
A few wins in the right direction can lead to a larger long term shift.
I love it! Most people who live east of Academy and north of Woodman never leave their land of forever strip malls anyway. Most metropolitan areas this size are composed of multiple cities. The priorities and demographics of this city are split in two, so we should formalize the separation. They can have their TABOR that kills our infrastructure, and we can have transform our core into the collection of walkable / bikable neighborhoods that promote the community most of us want.
