January Briefing
What's Up with the Mayoral Election?
Tuesday, January 17, 5:30 p.m.
by Zoom

Kyle HarrisKyle Harris is a journalist for The Denverite who is focused on the upcoming mayoral election in Denver, the responsibilities of the person who will fill this office in our “strong mayor” system and how the campaigning of the 24 (as of this writing) people who are aspiring to this office will roll out under Denver’s new Fair Elections Fund guidelines.

Kyle is interviewing former mayors and other city officials for his reporting to put this year’s contest in an historical context. He will help us understand “the power of the office, the reasons so many candidates are running, perhaps some of the sub-plots of the election, and even the challenges of covering — and for voters, considering — such a large field.” We might even hear a few tidbits of Denver mayoral history.

Kyle moved here from Chicago in 2005. He’s the former culture editor at Westword, where he covered the city’s arts and music scene. Before that, he covered city and state politics as the managing editor at the Colorado Independent.  Here are links to two of Kyle’s articles in case you would like to read them before the briefing:

"What does Denver's mayor do and how much power does the position have?"

"The Fair Elections Fund rollout is facing issues. City Council and the Clerk and Recorder's office"

Please join the LWVD for what promises to be an enlightening, and perhaps entertaining, briefing with Kyle Harris on January 17 at 5:30-7:15 via zoom. Go to our website to register.
