Victory for Yemi!

In a landmark moment for our city, Yemi Mobolade has emerged as the winner of the 2023 Colorado Springs Mayoral Run-off election. Making history as our first black mayor, his victory marks a significant step forward in our ongoing pursuit of diversity and inclusion in local leadership.

Mobolade's election as the 42nd mayor and the third Strong Mayor demonstrates his ability to lead and govern effectively. His experience and dedication to public service have earned him the trust and support of the community.

As we embark on this new chapter under Mayor Mobolade's leadership, we anticipate a renewed focus on addressing the challenges facing our city and fostering a more inclusive environment for all residents. With his historic win, we can look forward to a more diverse and representative leadership that reflects the values of Colorado Springs.

YEMI's Big Lead in Mayor Race

Yemi Mobolade is the clear frontrunner in the Colorado Springs mayoral run-off, but there is still a possibility that his competitor, Wayne Williams, may receive the official support of some of the other candidates. This means that while Mobolade has a strong lead, the race is not over and voters must remain diligent. It is important to consider each candidate's values and qualifications, and to stay informed about any developments in the race. Ultimately, the outcome of this election will have a significant impact on the future of Colorado Springs, and it is essential that voters make their voices heard through their vote.

Huge win for tops

As a strong supporter of Trails and Open Space I want to personally thank the voters for their overwhelming support of the TOPS increase. This is vital to the continued preservation of our open spaces and the maintenance of our public parks.

Mayoral Run-Off Near Certain

With 12 candidates running to replace current Mayor John Suthers, officials in Colorado Springs are anticipating a mayoral election runoff in May. To avoid a runoff, a candidate needs to secure at least 50% plus one vote in the April 4 election. However, City Clerk Sarah Johnson is expecting a runoff due to the likelihood that "votes will be spread so thin among the 12 candidates that no one will reach, or frankly, probably even come close to 50%". While ballots have already been dispatched for the April 4 election, if a runoff is required, Johnson's office will mail out additional ballots on April 21.   Full Article Here

City Council recently voted on a controversial measure that has the potential to limit future annexations and developments inside Colorado Springs. The original proposal was for the city to demonstrate that it had at least 130% water needed before annexation could be considered. The council instead voted in favor of an amended proposal brought forth by Council Member Dave Donelson of District 1.

Opponents to the measure say will give too much control to only one developer and worry that it will lead to a monopoly on future Colorado Springs development.
