"In a way, this is an urban issue which is going to require some inconvenience from rural people."If be rural people you mean anyone living outside the Denver city limits, including pretty much all of the suburbs, then yes. Sen. Brophy noted the comment and added his own:
We call it "getting Hicked" when rural people have to suck it up because Denver wants something.Or in this case, because the Denver government has no idea how to run a medium sized city. OTOH if you can warm the Mayors chair for 4 years without a major scandal breaking out, you're qualified to warm the Governors chair. Just sign whatever lands on your desk, and look forward to the big chair in Washington.
