Candidate Profiles

We are very excited to have recruited former Colorado Daily reporter Richard Valenty to interview all of the City Council candidates and write profiles of them. Richard was a staff writer for the Colorado Daily from 2000-2008, and was elections editor from 2004-2008. He also worked at the State Capitol for eight years as a legislative aide for Sen. Rollie Heath and in a variety of positions with the Colorado Senate Democrats. We are lucky to have snagged him for this project. Good reporting costs money though, so if you appreciate the insight you gain from the candidate profiles, please consider a donation to the Blue Line.
