Climate Bill of Rights

I co-sponsored the Lafayette Climate Bill of Rights Ordinance, which asserts our right to a healthy environment, free from all activities that interfere with the health and safety of all residents, and states that oil and gas development infringe upon our right to life, liberty and property.  This is the fundamental block on which we are building a comprehensive approach that includes code modifications. mapping, regulation and setbacks of flow lines and distribution lines, aligned with the requirements and restrictions implemented in Boulder County.  I promote alignment with all the other cities and counties in the front range to present a united front and leverage the legal precedent recently upheld by the Colorado Court of Appeals that prioritizes the protection of public health, safety and welfare, environment and wildlife resources over oil and gas development.
