From The Pueblo Chieftain (Ryan Severance):
Mike Castellucci officially announced his candidacy for the Pueblo Board of Water Works on July 10.
Castellucci is a lifelong resident of Pueblo and a graduate of South High School and the University of Southern Colorado, now Colorado State University-Pueblo. This would be his first time running for an elected position.
Castellucci has worked in the finance and banking industry for over 23 years. He has owned his own business and worked for several local banks. He says his “diverse experience and knowledge will be very useful for the community as a board member on the Board of Water Works.”
Chris Woodka, a veteran reporter and editor who retired to begin a new career as a water professional, also has announced his candidacy for the Pueblo Board of Water Works.
Woodka, 64, is seeking the six-year seat being vacated by Kevin McCarthy.
“As a water professional for the past two years, and as a journalist who spent more than 30 years covering water issues, I would bring a unique skill set to Pueblo Water. I have a deep understanding of water issues in Colorado and the American West, a fundamental knowledge of the structure of Pueblo water and practical knowledge about completing complicated water projects,” Woodka said.
