Ambrose Will Run for District 1 City Council Seat

DENVER, CO – Larry Ambrose, a Colorado native, resident of NW Denver since 1973, will be a candidate for Denver City Council in the special election expected to take place at the end of April. Ambrose, a business owner and consultant, was the Executive Director of the Auraria Foundation, manager of Colorado's second largest convention center, a Community College professor and is doing restoration and management of two historic buildings. A community advocate and neighborhood activist for 37 years, he is currently President of the Sloan's Lake Neighborhood Association and Co-chair of the Interneighborhood Cooperation Parks and Recreation Committee. Among his accomplishments are relocating and restoring the Golda Meir House at the Auraria Campus, leading the successful effort to bury power lines along West 32nd Avenue in the Highlands Square Business District, starting the North High Alumni Association and initiating the Viking Park entryway to NW Denver. Ambrose and his wife, Jane, founded the One Sky One World International Kite Fly for Peace and in 1975 she opened the first Colorado kite business, Sky Scrapers Kite Store, on Upper 15th Street which moved to Highland Square in 1988. He holds a law degree from DU, a Masters in Business from UCLA and Bachelor’s in Marketing from CU Boulder. In his free time, he takes his three border collies to Denver dog parks, which he was instrumental in establishing.

    Any information on other candidates, or do you only cover candidates who you count as personal friends?

    Larry Ambrose is running for public service? Now that's an oxymoron!

    This is the same guy that torpedoed the Dog Park Master Plan (designed to open more off leash areas and trails throughout the City), OpenAir (outdoor concerts/movies in parks for Denver citizens), Poo Bags in the Parks (free service to help clean up the parks and environment), and has a long history of his dog's being illegally off leash and attacking other park visitors.

    This guy does not live by the rules, nor the moral principles, that we in NW Denver value. Be certain to know your candidates before you decide...!
