We received the following Letter to the Editor this morning:
Upon the conclusion of the TLPA ( Taxi-Limo-Para Transit Association) convention, which was held last week at the Denver convention Center, in the beautiful city of Denver, my boss (79) and myself (a youtful 75 year old) were faced with a dilemma. We needed to get ourselves and our material to our hotel room, The Hyatt Regency, although just next to the Convention Center, posed a very long walk. Needless to say, we were exhausted after our 3 day stint at the convention, and attempted to find a taxi cab. Ironic, isn’t it, that after being at the taxi convention, we couldn’t locate a taxi!!The Perfect Gift For Everyone On Your List!Give a Gift Now »

However, we did successfully flag down an SUV leaving the Convention Center. A pleasant and friendly gentleman, after hearing our dilemma, offered not only to take us to our hotel, but made room for all of our equipment! This same gentleman, who was not the driver, but rather the passenger in the back of the car, insisted in helping us load our luggage into the SUV. A few minutes later, as we were driving to our hotel, this pleasant gentleman introduced himself…and who was he?? The Honarable John W. Hickenlooper, the mayor of your wonderful city!
As we arrived at our hotel, The honorable Mayor Hickenlooper insisted upon helping us remove our bags! We cannot think of any way to thank the Mayor, other than to bring his kindness and warmth to the attention of the citizens of Denver.
