It turns out that Kevin Kreeger, Broomfield mayoral candidate and current councilman, had a very good reason for voting against background checks for public officials during a recent meeting.

Intrigued by Kreeger’s opposition, Colorado Business Daily did a little digging and discovered Kreeger has a Chicago arrest record from the 1990s for assaulting a police officer, plus that other time he was caught in flagrante delicto with a prostitute.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out with voters.

Kreeger’s mayoral candidate platform boasts transparency. “The public deserves complete transparency,” his campaign website says. Kreeger also promises on his website to serve the city with “the utmost integrity.”

Some are suggesting, others are calling for Kreeger to withdraw from the race, although ballots are already being returned by voters.

PeakNation™ will recall Kreeger came under fire in 2017 for some of his email communications with fractivist Andrew O’Connor, after O’Connor’s infamous letter to the editor calling for gas and oil opponents to “blow up wells and eliminate fracking and workers.”

None of these actions inspire confidence in Kreeger as a councilman, let alone a mayor. 

In addition to Kreeger, Patrick Quinn and Kimberly Groom are running for mayor.
