Bruno said. “I see this role as a continuation of my public service career in Boulder.”
That’s what he said when he took the position of vice chancellor for administration at CU.
This was the guy who reported directly to the nine-member City Council and was responsible for the day-to-day administration of the city government, including managing 1,300 full-time employees and an annual budget of more than $240 million.
He sold out to The Chamber of Commerce, developers, Downtown Boulder, Inc… and the Realtors Association during his tenure with the City.
That’s why CU hired him because the leadership at CU and Regents think of CU as a business, not an educational institution.
Bruno is willing to do the dirty work, all with a smile.
Call me Frank, he said, on the couple of occasions I met with him in the City Manager’s office.
And he tried to change the subject to baseball instead of a particular corrupt organization within Boulder Government.
Our councilwoman Suzy Ageton should resign for holding Bruno in such high praise when he left.
She described his leadership at the city as ”a very hands-on kind of management that gives people the opportunity to learn and allows people to feel respected.”
Yeah, right, if you’re lining his pockets.
When Bruno left his post at the City he said, a good replacement candidates should have integrity, credibility and a “sense of openness and transparency.”
So, what about Grandview development? Now that you work for CU, Mr. Bruno?
Bruno said as far as CU is concerned, the plans for the building are final.
He say’s CU has no obligation to consult with city officials, but, that’s if you ignore a former “good faith” agreement, meaning, an agreement to have back and forth, transparent communication over plans for Grandview.
And, then he has the gall to ask for financial compensation for a slight design change of five feet!
