The new year has just begun, but time is running out for Pueblo’s two remaining mayoral candidates. Ballots went in the mail this week and the election is less than three weeks away.
And yet it’s been an unusually low-key runoff election between Nick Gradisar and Steve Nawrocki. Perhaps they thought it would be unseemly to do much campaigning during the holiday season. But now the holidays are over and Puebloans are going to have to make a decision soon.
In the general election, we endorsed Chris Nicoll because he had some very specific ideas for how to move the city forward and we thought he had the vision and energy to bring them to fruition. So far, what we’ve heard from Nawrocki and Gradisar has been pretty generic.
