University of Colorado Denver Chancellor Jerry Wartgow, a recent guest speaker in Randy Harrison’s graduate class on Economic Development, shared stories from his many years in Colorado’s education and job-training trenches.
A wry observation about how public policy tends to get meted out was especially humorous. “It’s such that if a fly came in and landed on a wall they would create a committee, study it for 12 months or maybe six years, then they’d come in and bulldoze the wall,” Wartgow said, to chuckles from the students. He summed up his point by saying, “Thank goodness for entrepreneurs and other people who come in and do things creatively.”
