If Denver voters choose Lisa Calderon as their next mayor, they will certainly be damaging a glass ceiling. That much is apparent.
Less evident is that they will be choosing the most educated Denver Mayor ever.
Lisa Calderon, presently a professor at Regis College, holds a regulation level. A master’s level. And a doctorate.
It’s an remarkable resumé. And after eight years of Michael Hancock, who concerned the job with just a series of political tasks in his history, it will bean incredible comparison to have Calderon in office.
It will certainly likewise suggest that Denver voters have actually chosen credentials as well as proficiency over cronyism. Maybe a radical change for a city that has battled to stabilize boomtown advancement with expanding demands for budget friendly housing, neighborhood education and learning and carrying out on fundamental city solutions.
