One of our most sacred rights as Americans and REALTORS® is our right to vote. We are all aware of the importance of our vote on the leaders, issues and proposals that impact our lives Nationally, State-wide, and locally. As REALTORS®, issues around housing are particularly important. Issues around “Affordable Housing” have been and continue to be, a hot topic everywhere. By now, many of you are aware of proposed ballot issues here in Grand Junction and Mesa County that are hoping to address this issue. Those and other issues have been thoroughly reviewed by the members of our Community Affairs Committee led by Lois Dunn, (they do incredible work on your behalf btw). The minutes of their last meeting on 10/13 are available here: (insert link). Statewide, CAR has produced a CAR Ballot Guide and two videos outlining their positions. They are available at the links below.
