Denver Business Journal honors commissioner for being “an effective leader in what traditionally has been a male-centric workplace.”
Commissioner Pugliese was selected from over 130 nominees for this prestigious honor. The Denver Businesses Journal wrote in a letter to Pugliese, “Our esteemed judging committee selected you from over 130 nominations received, not only for dedication to making an impact on the Colorado energy industry but also for your unfailing willingness to give back to the communities where you work and live. The Denver Business Journal is proud to recognize you among this elite group of women!”
Commissioner Pugliese is the only western Colorado resident to be honored with this award.
“I am humbled and honored to have received this award. We have so many incredibly strong female leaders all across the state, and we do great work for our communities,” Pugliese said. “I am so fortunate to be able to advocate for Mesa County on a federal and statewide level and be a strong voice for our county’s energy issues.”
