Denver Direct: Wouldn’t It Be Nice ….

Wouldn’t It Be Nice ….

Denver Mayor Hickenlooper has the opportunity to fill a vacancy on Denver Water’s 5-member Board of Commissioners. The vacancy was brought about by the departure of newly-appointed Senator Bennett who took his wife, Susan Daggett, to Washington with him. She had been appointed to a 6-year term on November 6, 2007.

Given the current composition of the Board,

Penfield Tate III, President, a shareholder in the Public Finance Group at the law firm of Greenberg Traurig,

John Lucero, a broker associate at Lucero Real Estate, Inc., a local real estate company that offers residential, commercial, development and investment real estate expertise,

Tom Gougeon, a principal in Continuum Partners LLC, a Colorado-based development company known for “green” building projects,

And George Beardsley, a principal with Inverness Properties, LLC, which specializes in the development and operation of commercial real estate properties,

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a Board member who represented the interests of the people who use the water? Someone with years of experience working on behalf of water consumers and workers? Someone like Adrienne Anderson?

Mayor John Hickenlooper

Dear Mayor:

It is my understanding that there is currently a vacancy on the Denver Water Board of Commissioners. Please consider appointing Adrienne Anderson to this position.

Anderson has a background unlike any other current Board member, with over 25 years of service to the Denver community in water-related issues.

Thank you for your consideration.

Gerald Trumbule

With a simple copy and paste, you can join me in emailing Mayor Hickenlooper to recommend Anderson for this position. Wouldn’t it be nice…?
