      I'm a young farmer who values community, affordability, mountain views, and good locally grown food. Bedrooms Are For People makes all that possible by proposing a sensible occupancy law that doesn't unduly restrict our rights to live with others.

      Boulder's current occupancy limits essentially make it illegal to be poor in Boulder. From the time I moved here at age 18 in 1980 until 1993, I was in violation of this ordinance the entire time, as where all my friends - none of us had the money to live here without sharing a home. I went on to become mayor and county commissioner, but I have never forgotten what it was like to have to live in fear that we would be evicted simply for the "crime" of not being wealthy enough.
