Paul Danish is our guest. Paul, more than perhaps any other individual, made Boulder, Colorado and Boulder County what they are today. The Boulderist talks to Paul about Boulder and CU, the University of Colorado, in the 1960s, his time as a journalist with the Denver Post, Town and Country, the Colorado Daily, Boulder Weekly, etc. Most importantly, Paul Danish and The Boulderist talk about Boulder and Boulder County politics, Paul’s stint as a Boulder City Councilman, his previous stint as a Boulder County Commissioner, and his current run for Boulder County Commissioner.
This is a terrific interview, and a must listen for anyone fascinated by Boulder and Boulder politics.

Top Three Principles:
- I will pay a decent respect to all opinions – including unconventional ones, and especially ones I disagree with. Sometimes they turn out to be right.
- I want to be as little involved in managing people’s personal conduct as is humanly possible when you’re representing 320,000 people living in relatively close proximity to each other.
- I will never forget that the concept of the loyal opposition is the secret sauce that makes American government work. I’ll always remember that political opponents are fellow American citizens and not enemies – and partners in the work of fashioning a more perfect union.
