Director of Master Site Development at Urban Land Conservancy. "I'm 'all in' because people must get informed, get involved, and ACT TOGETHER... otherwise we as Denver citizens can't effectively influence our city's future. Social, economic, political, cultural, and racial diversity together all help define a city, and make it vital, unique, and welcoming for people from all walks of life."
Vice President of Communications and Public Policy - Colorado Coalition for the Homeless
Senior Vice President- Equity Production I'm struck by the opportunity Denver has in this moment- to harness its growth and vibrancy to ensure all residents have access to affordable housing. When we share analysis about city proposals, we educate our neighbors and empower them to use their voices- and that's the Denver I want.
Writer, musician, television host, urban planning junkie, Westside/Barnum resident. "Before Denver becomes a 'world class city.' it needs to focus on being an affordable, accessible and equitable humanitarian city and a place for all. I believe that there is strength in numbers and that all voices deserve a seat at the table when it comes to making decisions for the present and future of Denver."
Principal, Civic Centered Consulting "The most important thing to a democracy is a vibrant and active voting population. As Denver continues to grow, it is critical that we get input from all our residents and advocate for the needs of those less represented."
President of Urban Ventures, LLC; downtown Denver resident. "I’m part of All In Denver because I believe that this community needs another voice on some major changes facing our community. We need people to raise questions that aren’t being addressed through the traditional political process and to be willing to “show up” to voice the concerns and to support alternative approaches, when needed."
President, Gates Family Foundation. "Thirty-five years ago, I worked with a group of people that challenged Denver to imagine a great city. A lot has happened to realize that vision, but we need to be up to the challenges that success brings. Denver has to remain a diverse city that can continue to welcome and accommodate all kinds of people."
