My friends and neighbors,
Our country is in a time of transition since the election a week ago.
I know many of you are feeling uncertain, anxious and, yes, even fearful with this change. I hear you. I have received your emails and phone calls. And I appreciate our candid conversations out on the street.
We have all heard the unwelcoming and dangerous rhetoric of recent. I want to be clear that you can count on me and you can count on your city. We’ve got your back.
Denver will never sacrifice the values that make this community great – inclusivity, openness and a penchant for succeeding together.
To uphold these values we must protect and lift up the very people we hold dear – you – our residents.
As your Mayor, that is my commitment to you. I’m committed to these values that make us the welcoming city we all love, and I hope you will join with me.
Because we should expect the best of ourselves, even in the hardest of times.
Join with us now and plan out how you are going to support your local organizations, help uplift your neighborhoods and give more of yourself so that we show our children the power of an inclusive and open city.
