(DENVER) Virginia “Gin” Butler contacted Mayor John Hickenlooper and Denver City Council President Elbra Wedgeworth on Thursday to decline her nomination to the Citizen Oversight Board.
Ms. Butler’s decision to withdraw from City Council consideration is due to personal reasons, namely the magnitude of the new responsibilities she has taken on as interim executive director of the Curtis Park Community Center.
“We thank Gin for her interest in the Citizen Oversight Board, but respect her judgment that her current responsibilities will prevent her from devoting the necessary energy to this board - a board that is critically important to our enhanced civilian oversight system,” Hickenlooper said.
Hickenlooper will announce a new nominee for City Council consideration as soon as possible. City Council will vote on final consideration of the existing slate of nominees on Monday, January 3, 2004.
