Doug Linkhart to be top name on Denver mayoral ballot

Drawing names randomly out of a bowl last night, it was determined that Doug Linkhart’s name will be listed first on ballots for Denver Mayor.

Following Linkhart are: Carol Boigon, Chris Romer, Thomas Andrew Wolf, James Mejia, Jeff Peckman, Theresa Spahn, Michael Hancock, Danny Lopez and Kenneth Simpson.

“We’re number one and we’re going to keep it that way,” Linkhart told Fox 31. “I don’t think it makes a huge difference where you are on the ballot. I think voters are smart enough to look for the candidate they support.”
