Announcing Opposition to AFFH, Darryl Glenn Colorado Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate
Darryl Glenn has announced his opposition to HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, AFFH, rule. As our Colorado Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, Darryl Glenn has our support to defeat incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet who will supports the Obama administration’s implementation of the new AFFH rule. AFFH will make a stark difference in the campaigns for U.S. Senate.
It’s been our observation that there is almost unanimous opposition to AFFH among a wide variety of Colorado communities and neighborhoods (without asking party affiliation). However, as El Paso County Commissioner Darryl is keenly aware the various non-profit organizations and third parties who historically have received grants and are now threatened by the rising opposition, becoming very outspoken about protecting their “right” for HUD grants without any knowledge or care about the impact of the new HUD AFFH rule on the community at large. In the past it’s been acceptable for communities to automatically take federal funds because it’s a way for citizens to get back their federal taxes, but now those federal HUD funds come with strings attached that directly impair local government authority and threaten property rights.
Momentum against AFFH is growing in spite of the Obama administration and HUD’s attempts to keep it out of the spot light before the 2016 election. Senator nominee Darryl Glenn can be assured that as more of the electorate becomes informed about the effect of AFFH that a much larger voting contingent will see that the liabilities associated with accepting HUD grants. Liabilities that far exceed the benefit to a few (for which there better alternatives to help the truly needy).
When elected, we expect Darryl Glenn to join Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, current co-sponsors of Senator Mike Lee’s U.S. Senate bill S.1909 opposing the AFFH rule, the “Local Zoning Decisions Protection Act of 2015”.
Darryl Glenn holds a Bachelor of Science from the United States Air Force Academy, a Master’s in Business Administration from Western New England College and a Juris Doctor from New England School of Law.
Glenn retired from the Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel after 21 years of active duty and reserve service.
