I figure we are all tired of hearing about this Mulcahy standoff. I don’t know the dude, may not even like him if I did, but the man is fighting for his home and his mom — what kind of feeling are we supposed to take away from that? A man defends his home. Bottom line. And jeez, he defends his Mom next. What else is a guy supposed to do? You know what? A person has to be at least half-crazy to even try to make a home here. Who gets to pick who gets to live in the Rockies? I guess APCHA thinks they are the ones. No. They are not the ones. Their job is to open up the door, that’s all. And that is all. If a person qualifies for affordable housing, all that should mean is they live here full-time, use the property, and are able to build their own home and live there. Being personable or not is not listed in the requirements. Pitkin County does have a “dog in the game.” We all do. Drop the 1,500 hours per year rule. It’s totally difficult to prove exactly how we manage to stay here. And, why. Get real.
