I had the chance to introduce my new Governor, Colorado’s own Bill Ritter, to the DNC membership this afternoon. He gave a great speech that highlighted the lessons to be shared from the West and the pragmatic, forward-looking leaders of the region tackling big problems. And in Denver, he said, we will choose with one voice a leader who will move us forward as a country
He also noted with pride that we’re working in Denver to put on the greenest Convention ever.
To close the day, the Host Committee held a reception for DNC members to offer them a little preview of next August. On the menu: Boulder Fries on the Fly, Rocky Mountain Buffalo Sliders, Tostadas and “Denveritas” to drink. Two big screens featuring local landmarks and landscapes and music including at least a song or two from The Fray.
Time to take my shoes off – it’s been quite a day.
