Dennis Flores, a native of Pueblo, is running for an at-large seat on City Council on the November 2017 ballot. In 2014 Flores was appointed to City Council to replace former Councilman Chris Kaufman, by Council members left after three resigned before a pending recall election. He says he was going to run during the last election but chose not to as his wife was sick.
Flores graduated from CSU-Pueblo, served two, four year terms on the Pueblo District 60 School Board and was as a treasurer and past chair for the Latino Chamber Development Corporation, where he also served as the past Chair. He is now an an insurance executive and serves on the CSU president's advisory council.
Flores says he wants to focus on improving streets and public safety, with an emphasis on reducing crime, drug addictions, gangs and drug trafficking. He says he was successful at helping pass a bond in the county in the past and that he can help the City come up with modern strategies to help pay to fix Pueblo's roads.
He says that Pueblo needs to work to reduce underemployment and unemployment.
While Pueblo's Council is non-partisan, Flores is associated with the Democratic party. He doesn't appear to have a FB page or candidates website. His phone number is listed as (719) 561-8111 and business as (719) 544-2533.
