Ritter to take new energy job at Colorado State

DENVER (AP) – Gov. Bill Ritter will take a job at a new center at Colorado State University focusing on new energy after leaving office.

Ritter announced Wednesday that he’ll become director of the Center for the New Energy Economy, focusing on an issue that he championed during his time as governor. He’ll also be named senior scholar within the university’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability.

CSU said the new center, including Ritter’s salary, is being funded by private donations but it didn’t disclose how much he would be paid. The center will initially be funded by the San Francisco-based Energy Foundation and the Bohemian Foundation, a Fort Collins group started by Pat Stryker, a prominent Democratic donor.

Ritter leaves office Tuesday.
