In this episode, Curt dialogues with City of Fort Collins Mayor Wade Troxell, and his lifelong friend Molly Skold, one of three candidates in the mayoral race to be decided on April 6, 2021.  

Curt digs into Wade's journey through academia and business, and more recently, government, and unfolds his underlying principals around economics and creating a great place to live and do business.  A Ram through and through, Wade earned his BS, Masters, and PhD's from Colorado State, (where he was also a star football player!) and earned a Post-doctoral Fellowship in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.  He was also a partner and co-founder of a company called Sixth Dimension, which scaled and ultimately went public.  

Molly shares her own journey of impact, from growing up in Fort Collins through time spent in a scientist-exchange program in Russia with her husband, time spent in journalism and rearing kids in Chicago, and being a major player in the re-imaging effort of Omaha, Nebraska.  Her move back to Fort Collins in 2005 spurred yet more impact service, including board roles at Visit Fort Collins and the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery.  

This episode digs into servant leadership in a way that few others will, and unfolds the importance of thinking globally, and acting locally.  Many thanks to Wade and Molly for sharing their time, and good luck to Molly in the election!
