Candi CdeBaca’s unapologetic nepotism misses the mark
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
It took Denver Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca less than six months to undermine her own message and confirm the worst fears of her detractors.
CdeBaca claims she wants to change the political power structure in Denver. And in some respects, she has done so through her unapologetic approach. But she can’t be successful if she undermines the trust of the people she represents.
After sustaining a week of criticism for attempting to put the woman she lives with on the City’s payroll, CdeBaca withdrew the request when she realized it would be “an unnecessary stain on our record.” Unfortunately for her, these types of stain tend to set fast once spilled on the floor.
