Denver Council Perks
This part will focus on two council members: Carol Boigon (At-Large) and Marcia Johnson (Dist. 5).Boigon, like many council members, did not disclose the value of items or when they were given. Johnson, on the other hand, reported most freebies with prices and dates included.
All disclosures are from 2005, as that is the most recent record available.
Boigon received lunch and candy from the Denver Police Protective Association, the union for the Denver Police Department.
M.D.C. Holdings, Inc./Richmond American Homes, headquartered in Denver, gave Boigon a Denver Rustlers western blouse and the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation sponsored a luncheon.
Johnson was given two Rockies tickets by Coors totaling $100, along with a dinner from Comcast with a value of $70.
Piper Jaffray & Co, an investment company, also sponsored a $70 awards dinner that the representative attended. Johnson reported items totaling over $1600.
