A $200-a-person fundraiser for mayoral candidate Steve Bach at The Broadmoor last night is generating all sorts of buzz today.
The invitation to the event, which states that unlimited contributions are allowed, was obtained by the City Desk blog from someone who is on Bach’s mailing list.
The organizers of the event included a who’s who of Colorado Springs, including Gary Loo, Kathy Loo, Bill Hybl, Attorney General John Suthers, developer Steve Schuck and Steve Bartolin, president and CEO of the Broadmoor.
“That’s the power structure,” John Hazlehurst, a former city councilman, wrote in the Indy blog.
“All of the hosts have exercised significant power in this community for at least 25 years,” he wrote. “Any aspiring politico had better be on the good side of every one of these folks – and you’d better be a solid conservative as well.”
Laura Carno, Bach’s chief of staff, declined to say how much money was raised.
