Lopez residency under formal investigation

Today, George Merritt of the Denver Post investigates whether Paul Lopez was officially a resident of Council District 3 since May 1, 2006... and thus whether he is even eligible to run for City Council in that district.

The article is entitled "Candidate Lopez insists he's resident," and adds several new wrinkles to the story.
  • Indicates that the Denver Election Commission is formally investigating the matter.
  • Clarifies that the District 3 home is Paul Lopez's family residence, and that the Lowell address is an apartment Lopez lived in while attending CU-Denver.
  • Adds a third address to the list: an apartment on West 38th Avenue. Lopez said he simply "paid a couple bills there."
Read the Denver Post story and let us know what you think.
