Two University City Mayors Connect

Below is the video of Fort Collins Mayor Wade Troxell’s keynote speech to a group of Lexington leaders, discussing the idea of Fort Collins as a University City. Mayor Jim Gray and Scott Shapiro, Mayor Gray’s Chief Innovation Officer, also speak.

Mayor Troxell straddles the worlds of municipal government and academia. In addition to leading his city, Mayor Troxell is also a mechanical engineering professor at Colorado State University, and he’s been thinking about the Triple Helix of academia, government and business for years.
