The Larimer Alliance submitted questions on two separate occasions to all the candidates running for Mayor of the City of Fort Collins City in the election on April 6, 2021. The questionnaire covered a range of topics related to oil and gas regulation and other environmental issues, and can be viewed under this same category here. LOGIC Action also conducted its own survey of the candidates on these topics as well as a careful look at their record.
Based upon a combination of the candidate responses we received and their public record on the issues, the Larimer Alliance and LOGIC Action are endorsing Jeni Arndt, currently seated as Colorado State Representative for District 53, to serve as Mayor of Fort Collins.
Additionally, we stand ready to assist in helping educate and collaborate with the future city council and Mayor as the City of Fort Collins develops its own regulations on oil and gas development within the city to ensure strong protections for the health and safety of all Fort Collins residents, the environment, and wildlife, in accordance with the law. We also look forward to working with them on other related environmental issues.
The Larimer Alliance for Health, Safety & the Environment is a coalition of Northern Colorado citizens and groups committed to protecting Larimer County from harm by oil and gas development. We aim to educate the public and ensure that local and state governments develop and implement policies that prioritize the protection of public health and safety, environmental quality, wildlife resources, and the integrity of public lands, in accordance with Colorado law.
LOGIC Action supports and assists oil and gas impacted Coloradans and our allies with education, community organizing, technical resources, and financial support. We use all available tools to support, enable, and advocate for impacted Coloradan to move Colorado toward a future independent of fossil fuels.
Both the Larimer Alliance and LOGIC Action are 501c4 organizations.
