As a business coach, I often find myself helping people when they are at their wits end or at the bottom of the barrel. To help them get (back) on track it takes time, energy and innovation. Through our perseverance and dedication a business/person is usually able to right the ship and continue doing what they do best, i.e. sell, speak, present, create, write, etc.
Currently the City of Denver is searching for that boost in the arm, that motivator, that coach. Not to say that the city is at the bottom of the barrel, but the city is facing cuts and no matter what people say, there is not a lot of fat on the bone.
It is my belief that the city is in need of a Mayor that has a balance of experience and innovation, coupled with a willingness to search out the best alternative, (no matter what side of the aisle it comes from). I believe that James Mejia is that person, not because we have shared beers and burgers, or because he has walked my neighborhood; but because he has a wealth of experience across the board and a vision of what makes Denver great now and will make Denver even better in the future.
His plans for supporting the local economy, integrating sustainability into all aspects of the city, increasing access to Platte River and his commitment to finding the best solution possible make him the best candidate and also a man that you would be lucky to have as a neighbor.
