Presidents Message June 2016

Hello again my fellow neighborhood and city leaders, here we are in Denver 2016; I hope it’s going well for you and your communities as we begin the summer. As we take some time, during the Memorial Day weekend, to celebrate the sacrifices and mourn the ultimate sacrifices that our forbearers made to sustain our country, I am writing to tell you that the need for active citizens who are willing to give of themselves to better our city and our nation is as relevant today as it has ever been in our fair city.

Presidents Message May 2016

For this president’s letter, I realize that many of you don’t really know who I am and what I stand for, so I’m going to take a minute to tell you a bit about myself.
I am a child of Denver. I was born at DGH, I grew up in northwest Denver, and attended elementary –> high school in the DPS schools there.
As my alma mater, North High School’s most famous attendee, Golda Meir, said, “Don’t be so humble – you are not that great.”
I want to let you know that I’ve been a neighborhood and community advocate from early childhood because, well, it’s just the way my mom and dad raised me. Growing up, I was constantly walking the streets, organizing neighbors, going to city meetings with my mom.

In agreeing to serve it has been my goal to fundamentally move the organization to actively advocate for neighborhood interests and to empower neighborhood organizations to effect municipal public policy. I believe that this is the role that INC has increasingly served as part of our City’s democratic process. READ MORE

From The President: Mopping up after a World Championship Victory

For Denver residents, winning the Super Bowl is indeed one more reason we have to be proud of our City. We are proud of its history, its diversity, its climate, its institutions and its culture including its sports teams; K-12, collegiate and professional.
Another thing that has always stood out about which we could be proud was the perception that Denver was a clean city. This was something that was noticeable especially in the spring and summer after a long a dreary winter. READ MORE

From the President: A Big Year in Perspective

The year 2015 has marked unprecedented accomplishments for INC. With the help of the Delegation, INC Committee Chairs, Co-chairs and Members, and a myriad of folks from RNOs and the community, there can be no doubt that INC has tried to make, and in some cases made a difference in the course of events and direction of public policy.
