PLC, PBS, the Mayor and Change
What does it take to be a great leader in Denver, especially in the Tebow-era? Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock addressed PLC Alumni at the annual event, “Wine, Cheese and Change,” and joked that while he is not the most recognizable public figure in town that was all right with him – for now. He then offered his opinion about leadership in a time of uncertainty… and football mania.
Hancock said that as an elected official he believes it is his job to carryout the vision of the Denver voters who supported his campaign. Thus his priorities are around the issues of education, public safety, job growth and creating a more efficient government.
The event took place last Friday at the Rocky Mountain PBS studios in Downtown Denver and was graciously hosted by PLC Alumni and RMPBS CEO Doug Price.
The Mayor said that while every Denver resident knows the Broncos quarterback, past Mayors have shown that the city’s real leadership comes from the top spot in City Hall. Hancock, who took office this summer, said he plans to continue that legacy.
On a night focused on change, the unity and support network of PLC alumni was apparent. Thanks to all who attended.
