Hancock on Target; Affordable Housing Top Concern of Denver Voters

Mayor Hancock
Mayor Michael Hancock was correct to focus on affordable housing in his latest State of the City address. In a recent Ciruli Associates poll, Denver voters said affordable housing was their top concern when asked: “What do you believe is the most important issue for the Mayor and the Denver City Council to deal with?”

Tied for second as “an important issue” for local government was homelessness and too much growth, with traffic congestion in third.

The Mayor was correct to emphasize programs related to homelessness and avoid touting the city growth encouraging projects. The public likes a good economy, but is amazed by the development and congestion.
