It was clear before the lockdown began, and it’s crystal clear now. We need a new voice on our City Council who can kickstart a more vigorous entrepreneurial approach to solving the problems that are holding our city back.
I believe that voice is Nick Armstrong, candidate for District 1.
Just listen to how he lays it all out in his campaign launch video – so clear and disciplined and straight to the point.
I worked on a Startup Week volunteer committee with Nick a few years ago. He was an exceptionally good listener and the guy we turned to for the digital know-how that became the foundation of the entire event. Fast forward a couple of years and he was our lead organizer. Thanks to him, it was the best Startup Week yet.
It was when I heard Nick speak at the Fort Collins Connexion broadband launch that I first pictured him as the entrepreneurial leader we need on our City Council. He single-handedly lifted the entire event with his knowledge, wit, and easy-going manner. He was the only one in the lineup who seemed to be speaking to me rather than some silent special interest lurking in the crowd.
I know I’m not alone in feeling that way – I’ve heard people urge him to run many times since.
As an entrepreneur, as a neighborhood advocate, as a father, as a principled and empathetic public figure, he’s the complete package.
Vote for Nick on April 6!
