Durango City Council Candidates – Election is April 4th. Watch the Candidate Forum.
Carter Rogers, 20, is a Fort Lewis College junior pursuing a degree in political science. He is also the president of the college’s student body. He said he wants to serve on City Council because he believes meaningful change “comes from the bottom up” and is most needed in expanded access to housing, mental health, transportation services, and investments into small and sprouting businesses.
David Woodruff, 44, president of the Durango chapter of the Colorado Restaurant Association and former general manager of El Moro Spirits & Tavern, said at a January campaign kickoff that the next 10 years are “pivotal” for the city of Durango. He said his experience as a family man, 17 years spent in the private sector and time served on various nonprofit boards inform a fresh perspective he intends to bring to City Council.
