Pueblo faces an uncertain future as the city makes the historic transition to a mayoral form of government.
Ideally, the new mayor should be someone who will provide a steady hand on the wheel as the city charts this new course. The new mayor should understand the intricacies of where Pueblo’s city government has been. And the new mayor should be someone with a clear and innovative vision of where the city should be going.
We believe Steve Nawrocki has all of these qualities and more. Nawrocki served eight years on the Pueblo City Council, including five as the council’s president. In that capacity, Nawrocki developed a base of knowledge about city government that few, if any, outsiders ever could hope to have. He knows how the budget process works. He knows which departments are functioning well and which could stand some improvement. And he knows the personalities who currently work at City Hall.
