WATCH: Denver DA debate with moderator Susan Greene
It’s often said that a district attorney has more direct power over people’s lives than a mayor. If that’s so, Denver voters need to know who’s running and how he or she differs from outgoing Denver DA Mitch Morrissey.
Where do the candidates stand on prosecuting the homeless and mental ill? What are they thinking about racial profiling, excessive force and the city’s longstanding pattern of not prosecuting killer cops and sheriff’s deputies?
The Colorado Independent hosted a DA candidate debate on Wednesday, Sept. 14th, the first public forum in the general election race for Denver DA. Democrat Beth McCann and independent candidate Helen Morgan debated questions posed by our editor, Susan Greene, and by audience members. Watch the full 90-minute debate here.
