Back when Pueblo decided it wanted to have a Mayor run city government, few expected that 16 people would run for office. Now that Pueblo is in the final month of the campaign, I can officially say, 16 people are 10 people too many to run for office.
With a month to go, Puebloans do have choices however, there are the safe choices, candidates who could be mayor tomorrow and keep Pueblo moving along. If Puebloans want a stark contrast with the way things have been going, they too have options. If Pueblo’s minorities feel left out and want a fighter, they have choices. And if Pueblo thinks there are no promising politicians from different walks of life, this race has shown that a few candidates are could turn into the next class of Pueblo leaders.
