Ballots for the 2011 General Municipal Election were mailed to voters on April 14, 2011. With ten candidates running for Denver mayor, voters will need to keep a "cheat sheet" handy. Speed Candidating profiles cut through the rhetoric to help voters pick their favorite candidate. First up: Jeff Peckman... As seen above, the Speed Candidating profile for Jeff Peckman condenses the essence of the man and his mayoral mission. This abbreviated version is best understood when read in a side-by-side comparison with Speed Candidating profiles of the other nine mayoral candidates.
Perhaps the most unconventional human being running in this year's election, Jeff Peckman is the only candidate who has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman Show. He is also the only candidate to have spawned a cottage industry in video spoofs.
Peckman's lifelong interest in extraterrestrial affairs and transcendental meditation are the centerpiece of his "Denver Project" mayoral platform. Voters have defeated all of his previous initiatives, but that has not stopped Jeff Peckman from shooting for the stars!
