Thumbs up:
Maria H (Denver): Mayor White has a vision for Denver, which will make the city a magnet for America's young creatives. Tomorrow's entrepreneurs are attracted to outward-looking cities.
•Trevor C (Denver): I admire the mayor for his courage to provide people, whatever their origin or status, security in a dangerous world.
• N Gargaro (From outside Denver): Cleaning up the city for the Democratic National Convention. I live in the suburbs of Denver and it was nice to see Denver cleaned up.Went downtown for the taste of Colorado and loved all the flowers.

Thumbs down:
• Samantha W (Denver): Firing city employees, forcing furlough days and forcing first responders (cops/sheriffs/fire fighters) to take pay cuts or else be fired, then spending 3 MILLION dollers on "pet projects" like the homeless initiatives (which haven't decreased homelessness in Denver AT ALL!) Seems to be he has money for things to "feather" his political nest, but no money for things that are necessary.
• Scott H (Denver): Not backing an immigration policy that makes sense
• W C (Denver): Building a vast sanctuary city for illegals and homeless people plus not keeping DIA airport open on tough snow days.
• Barb M (Denver): 1. Making the city a "Safe Haven" for illegal immegrants.
2. Wasted money on repaving the alley ways in Denver
3. Allowing Council Members 4.55% pay increases while making city employees take furlough days.
4. Not instituting "Work from Home" schedules for city employees.
• Anon (Denver): You let Southwest Airlines into Denver and now Frontier Airlines is facing extinction. You have NEVER stood behind Frontier and now 5,000 plus people are in serious jeopardy of losing their jobs. This is Denver's hometown airline. DO SOMETHING!!!!!!
• Ciycite (Denver): Hickenlooper lacks a vision for the city and the attention span to implement.
Turning Denver into a sanctuary city for illegal aliens to pander for future votes of the Hispanic voters!

• N Gargaro (From outside Denver): Why is Denver a sanctuary city for illegals?Every time I hear another person dead at the hands of someone not supposed to be in our country, I get mad!! Think about what you are doing to the taxpayers who just happen to pay your salary! How come all of my family has to have a valid driver's license and insurance?
