Denver Mayor Hancock hosts ‘Cabinet in the Community’ on Saturday

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced this week that he is hosting the Cabinet in the Community meeting Saturday from 9 am until noon at the Washington Park Recreation Center.

“While our great City is faring better than many others around the nation, we still face tough decisions ahead on how best to move Denver forward. And I am dedicated to ensuring those decisions are made with your voice, your input and your participation,” he said in an email.

“The decisions we make don’t just impact one neighborhood or one business – they impact all of us. That’s why community outreach and public input are so important to me and my administration.”

He said the meeting will offer residents an opportunity to meet top City officials and hear brief presentations on things such as job creation, children’s initiatives, public safety and sustainable City finances. He said residents will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with department heads and agency directors.

The Washington Park Community Center is at 701 S. Franklin Street. Hancock’s office says it plans to hold the meetings quarterly.

Scot Kersgaard has been managing editor of a political newspaper, editor and co-owner of a ski town newspaper, executive editor of eight high-tech magazines (where he worked with current Apple CEO Tim Cook), deputy press secretary to a U.S. Senator, and an outdoors columnist at the Rocky Mountain News. He has an English degree from the University of Washington. He was awarded a fellowship to study internet journalism at the University of Maryland's Knight Center for Specialized Journalism. He was student body president in college. He spends his free time hiking and skiing.
