Fort Collins REALTORS® Announce City Council Candidate Endorsements

The Fort Collins Board of REALTORS® interviewed candidates for City Council and is endorsing the following candidates in the April 2 municipal election. These candidates have all demonstrated their support for REALTOR® issues such as economic development and private property rights.

Mayor: Small business owner Karen Weitkunat is just completing her first term as mayor. (Many observers were surprised when Mayor Pro tem Kelly Ohlson decided not to run against Ms. Weitkunat. Ohlson is term-limited and cannot run for a third term representing District 5. Will this be the end of Ohlson’s political career? Only time will tell.)

District 1: Butch Stockover, sales manager at Dellenbach Motors, has served for eight years on the Planning and Zoning Board. (Ben Manvel, who currently represents District 1, is term-limited.)

District 3: Gino Campana owns Bellisimo, Inc., a development and construction company. (Aislinn Kottwitz has decided not to run for a second term.)

District 5: Ross Cunniff works for a computer technology company and has served eights years on the Poudre School District Board of Education.
