    Honestly, I have no idea whether this guy would be any better for athletics than the woman from Aspen.

    Don't know either one of them, and it isn't my district but I noticed in this guys bio that he has some coaching background. Might mean that he knows the impact that athletics can have in kids lives and an understanding of how athletics can fit into an overall program, even if it was at a secondary level rather than post-secondary.

    His family's company did the masonry on my commercial buildings and the stone work on my house. Other than the first class job they do, I have no idea about the guy.

    As for the girl from Carbondale, I did see her speak in Parachute a few months ago and was not impressed at all, she had the maturity of a high school girl. She is all about the dems dominating the Regents so they wont allow guns on campus; and she wants tuition to decrease, but has no solution, she just thinks its bad.

    Well make sure you get about 20,000 of your closest friends and relatives to do the same.

    At this point, no. I think everything is fairly obvious - but we're waiting to see how many responses we get back before diving too far into it

    Given Gallegos' coaching background and his collegiate football playing days, this guy is friendly to Athletics at CU.

    Allbuffs.com should endorse Glen Gallegos District 3 Regent.

    Sounds like what I wish I could vote for. CU is the flagship university in Colorado and we should never settle for anything less than excellence. It sounds like he understands that. I don't know that competing for a NC every couple of years is realistic but you are never going to get there unless you shoot for it.

    It also sounds like he has a grasp on the role of athletics, especially football in the public perception of the school and in the school experience.

    I'd vote for him if I could. His experience in both business and in education sounds like he would be an assett to the board in many ways.

    Should we wait to see what the other candidate says or just hop on board here and now?

    The other candidate is out of her league. Her priorities are making CU affordable, and keeping firearms off campus.

    Irrelevant to this thread and this forum. She gets the opportunity to interview also, or decline the interview.

    I think she deserves the opportunity to respond to the questionnaire. However, she can't be given all the time in the world to do so, either. I'd give her a couple days, and then endorse the candidate that at least had the willingness to respond. That goes for the lady in the 7th, too. I may not like what she said, but if she's willing to respond, and her opponent isn't, then that says a lot, too.

    Our election bureau is still efforting more of these, but I'm not sure exactly who he's getting responses from, or when he might have the interviews...

    Glen Gallegos is my clear winner! He played football, coached football and is adamant advocate for athletics.

    Run Gallegos Run.

    This guy played football and was a wrestler. Later, he was a coach. He seemed to view the athletic experiences he had as a plus in his own personal development. He runs his own company. You ever deal with construction workers on a day to day basis while untangling yourself with all the red tape inherent in that industry? Not sure what else needs to be said. I believe he is the only candidate which should be considered.
