Race To the End
|Do you know who you will support for mayor pro tem?
No, I would like to hear who is interested in that position what they
bring to the table.
Why are you running for council?
Simple reason, when I read the article that Cat resigned [former
Ward IV Councilor Cathleen McEwen], she was one of the more
studious members on the issues, she didn't make a lot of
speeches and hit the issues when she spoke, she always cut to
the chase and I liked that. That is the type of councilor I will be.
How do you feel the election will turn out?
It is an uphill battle. But it is one of those things that if I at least
don't try I don't want to not have made the effort. That is why we
are earning it the old fashion way with shoe leather and door to
Will you run again in a year?
I'll have to make that decision at the time based on the experience
of that year and what I can contribute.
Do you knock on doors that say no soliciting?

Loveland Mayor Cecil Gutierrez gets
the LovelandPolitics Chutzpah Award
for his comments in today's Loveland
Reporter Herald pretending to dislike
partisan elections and politics.
The story stated,
"Mayor Cecil Gutierrez, a Democrat by
voter registration, hesitated to be
drawn into a discussion about
partisanship, saying it doesn't deserve
a role in local politics.
'It's been injected in a major way, and
it's kind of sad, and it's unfortunate
because it's just not necessary,'
"The problem, when you get into
partisan politics at the local level, is
that you have to work with people of
every political affiliation. You can't
solve problems based on ideology..."
Mayor Gutierrez recently hosted
Democrat Congressman Jared Polis
who is running for Congress at the
Mayor's home for a campaign event.
This was the first time in at least a
decade we have been reporting on
LovelandPolitics a Mayor of Loveland
lent both his title and home to a
partisan candidate for any office.
The reporter should have asked how
Mayor Gutierrez expects to work with
Polis' opponent, State Senator Kevin
Lundberg, if he is elected to represent
Loveland in the U.S. Congress.
