    Wanted to bump this, he refued our first couple of requests for an interview. His opponent however is attempting to make time to sit down with AllBuffs.

    refused our request for an interview? even though his opponent is making time for us?

    wow. that doesn't seem like a good PR move from a PR professional. i wonder if he understands the reach of allbuffs... our viewership can be a difference-maker.

    Stephen Ludwig has not changed his initial stance of refusing to be interviewed by us as he see the site as too partial to athletics. We've let his office know his opponent is on record but that has not changed their position about talking to us.

    Brian Davidson - the two ran against each other last time round and Ludwig came out ahead by something like 400 votes.

    That's within the scope of AllBuffs to change. I will be emailing my friends who still live in Colorado. Have we linked this on Netbuffs?

    Wow. Does he respond to parents that are trying to find ways to pay for their children to attend CU? Or are they too partial to affordable education to bother to respond to? This guy is part of the reason why CU is failing right now.

    Agreed. Something like this would never happen at a powerhouse school. Inconceivable at a place like Florida, Oklahoma, or Texas.

    He didn't get my vote nor my wife or my parents. So, that is 4 votes.... 4 votes who voted for him last time.

    Wait... What?!?!

    Let me get this straight... He can't find the time to answer a few questions from people who have a vested, passionate interest in the University of Colorado?

    And he's running for Regent? I guess that pretty much says it all.

    Yep, my wife voted for Davidson, my mother in law did, my brother in law and sister in law did as well and they went to CSU! Including my vote, Davidson now has 5 votes of which at least 4 he did not have last time (i cannot remember how I voted so it may be 5)

    Ludwig's response is just stupid. Not only does he actually state his position by refusing to respond, but he loses the opportunity to explain his position in any sort of way that could show he is a reasonable candidate even if he hates the main advertising arm of his university. Happy to vote for the other guy. Another for davidson.

    I voted for Davidson, and my coworkers who don't know or care said that they would vote for him based on my recommendation.

    Edit: My father also voted for Davidson based on my recommendation

    +2 Davidson at least.

    Ludwig is part of the problem at CU. He spearheaded an effort that basically says people should attend community college, take as many courses as possible, and then be guaranteed admission to CU. He wants to devalue a Colorado degree by using competency-based courses to allow students to "master course material" and move on to another course. If you want your CU degree to have the value of an ITT Tech degree, that's a wonderful idea. Then there's the fact that a major part of his platform is introducing a statewide referendum to raise taxes to fund higher education...while allowing undocumented immigrants to also attend CU for a little more money than a resident can! WTF? The guy has done nothing for athletics and does not deserve to be reelected. Vote Davidson.

    Four years on the board and your first post is about how much of a dirtbag Ludwig is. Nice. Ludwig must really piss you off. :lol:

    Welcome rep coming your way.
