Explanation for Teatro stays

Dear Editor:I feel I must clear up misinformation concerning Regent Schwartz’s overnight stays in Denver as she performs her official Regents duties.Let me offer a few facts concerning the Hotel Teatro. Because the building formerly housed classrooms for the University of Colorado, we have a contractual agreement with the Hotel which includes room rates that are lower than any other downtown hotels. All of our Regents who travel a significant distance from their homes to Denver for meetings also stay at the Teatro. The fact that the Hotel is within walking distance from the Auraria Campus is a big plus.Regent Schwartz has spent over 200 nights away from her family and home during her six years of service to the University of Colorado, all of this without any compensation for her service to the state.Patricia M. HayesChair, University of Colorado Board of Regents
