Vote Nate Budd

Meet the Candidate

I am a decade-long resident of Fort Collins.  In addition to my role as a Development Officer at CSU, I am a proud CSU alum and dedicated community member.  I currently serve as Vice President of the board for Neighbor to Neighbor and President of the Friends of the Gardens on Spring Creek.  Previously, I have served on the Coloradoan's Editorial Board, Scoping Committee for UniverCity Connections, as well as chaired the Development Committee for Homelessness Prevention Initiative. My experiences have given me a well-rounded perspective on the scale and scope of the challenges and opportunities our community experiences. I look forward to the opportunity to continue my engagement in a greater way as your District 1 representative.
