Local entrepreneur Heidi Ganahl, founder and CEO of Camp Bow Wow (the Broomfield-based pet-care chain), is running for an at-large seat on the University of Colorado Board of Regents. This is Ganahl's first bid for public office, but she has been recognized for her business acumen in Fortune magazine's 2014 list of Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs and also founded Moms Fight Back, a nonprofit organization dedicated to childhood safety issues.
Former Boulder lawmaker Alice Madden and Heidi Ganahl, the founder of Broomfield-based pet care company Camp Bow Wow, are vying this year for the at-large seat on the University of Colorado Board of Regents.
Madden, a Democrat who represented House District 10 in the state Legislature from 2000 to 2008 and was House majority leader from 2005 to 2008, filed her paperwork with the Colorado Secretary of State's Office late Sunday evening.
Ganahl, a Republican who launched the pet care company Camp Bow Wow in Denver in 2000, filed her paperwork to run last month for the at-large seat currently held by Steve Bosley, R-Longmont, who is term-limited.
