Clint Stanovsky




Clint Stanovsky has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington, and a MS from the Technology and Policy Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  His Master’s thesis was a study of institutional (internal labor market) responses to the introduction of computer-controlled machine tools at the Caterpillar Tractor Company.

Following graduate school, Clint worked in the Economics and Financial Services discipline, and later in the Solid Waste Management discipline, of CH2M Hill, an international civil/environmental engineering firm.  Clint focused on electric and solid waste utility planning, eventually specializing in public works contracting and the privatization of solid and hazardous waste management services.

More recently, Clint served as an independent consultant on the cleanup of contaminated soil in two Washington communities.  In both settings, he worked closely with local and state governments, as well as with the liable corporations, to adapt and apply statewide standards to the needs of the host communities.

Clint is a trained community mediator, and for several years practiced through a local dispute resolution center.

Clint has three grown sons.  His spouse, Elaine Stanovsky, is a United Methodist clergy-person and Bishop of the United Methodist churches in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming and Utah.  Clint and Elaine live in Centennial, Colorado.




Clint is interested in the development and implementation of environmental policy, with an emphasis on its application in local communities.  He is especially interested in the influence of host-community advocacy on the dynamics of bargaining between regulators and private corporations. | Physical Address: 1380 Lawrence St., Ste. 500  Denver, CO  80204 | Mailing Address: University of Colorado Denver, SPA, Campus Box 142, P.O.
