Hello Denver? Ep3: Do local elections matter? A candidates forum Jan 25 2018 - 20:00 - Jan 25 2018 - 21:30 Mutiny Information Cafe, Denver, United States
Hello Denver? Are You Still There? is recording its third episode and you are invited!
Join me, your host Bree Coco Davies, and Mutiny Information Cafe for another edition of this live podcast devoted to the conversations about the Mile High City that matter.
I'm honored to be joined by Julie Gonzales for Colorado, Kayvan Khalatbari - 2019 Candidate for Denver Mayor, Saira for Congress & Risa White!
This month's podcast topic:
“Do local elections matter? A frank conversation with Colorado candidates"
If the current political climate has shown us anything, it's that WHO we elect matters. But often, that idea only extends to the presidential election every four years. But who is working for us at both a city and state level can often have a bigger impact on our daily lives than we realize.
Voter turnouts for municipal and state elections are often low. (To give you an idea, in Denver's last mayoral election in 2015, only 94,000 people voted... in a city of well over 600,000 people!) I want to change that, and I think the best way to do so is by helping you, my community, get to know the people who are running for office.
Through the work I do on a daily basis, I am lucky to interact with many political figures --both currently elected and aspiring candidates-- and I wanted to bring those connections to you, the community.
This podcast will be a discussion, not a debate. None of the candidates participating are running for the same office. This conversation is meant to be raw and real; we will get to know some of our future leaders, get to know WHY they think running for local office is important, and find out WHAT they plan to do to make Denver (and Colorado) a more equitable place for everyone.
Julie Gonzales for Colorado:
Democrat running for Colorado's Senate District 34
"Born on the San Carlos Apache reservation in Arizona and raised in the borderlands of south Texas. Her mom Gloria, grew up on the family ranch in Gardner, Colorado and was an elementary school teacher. Her dad Mario was a rancher and is now a medical cannabis producer in northern New Mexico. Together, they taught Julie the value of hard work, honesty, and the importance of lifting as we climb.
Julie first fell in love with Denver in the late 1990s, during the summers between high school when she lived with her older brother John. She took the new light rail to downtown Denver, where she worked multiple jobs to save money for college. In 2005, she graduated from Yale University and within a week of her graduation, moved to Denver. In 2008, she bought an affordable housing unit at 23rd and Clay Street in Jefferson Park, where she lives with her fiancé Ben Chavez, and their shih-tzu mutt Chookie.
Julie has dedicated her life to organizing on the front lines for justice in Colorado. In 2005, Julie organized a 58-member coalition of low-income families, unions, community organizations, and environmental activists that passed a community benefits agreement at the Gates Rubber Factory redevelopment to ensure that tax dollars were spent on affordable housing, a clean environment, and jobs that paid a living wage.
In 2006, she organized students at North, Lincoln, and Montbello High Schools to ensure that Denver Public Schools offered a college-preparatory education to all students while also ending the school-to-jail pipeline. In 2009, she co-founded the Colorado Latino Forum, a statewide grassroots organization dedicated to building the economic, educational, and political power of Latinos across Colorado, and in 2013 was elected to serve as the statewide board chair.
Over the past decade, Julie helped build an incredible movement to defend and advance immigrant rights across Colorado, and has been at the forefront of several key battles at the state legislature on immigration, including co-drafting the ASSET bill at the state legislature, which allowed Colorado undocumented students to attend college and pay in-state tuition, and the creation of immigrant drivers’ licenses. In 2017, Julie was a leader in a coalition that passed legislation to ensure that no Denver resources would be spent on immigration enforcement.
A lifelong progressive Democrat, Julie volunteered on her first campaign in 2003, and registered voters in eight different states in 2004. In 2016, Julie volunteered and caucused for Bernie Sanders, and then joined the Colorado Democratic Party as an organizer, where she served as Morgan Carroll’s persuasion field director during her CD6 Congressional campaign, engaged volunteers, and turned out voters in support of Hillary Clinton. In 2017, Julie was elected by HD5 to serve as a member of the Party’s Central Committee and Executive Committee.
As your state senator, Julie will fight so that all Coloradans have the right to a home, a high-quality education, a job that pays a living wage, a clean environment, universal healthcare, and the right to live freely and with dignity."
Kayvan Khalatbari - 2019 Candidate for Denver Mayor:
"I am a proud product of Denver, by way of Lincoln, Nebraska. I come from a small, middle-class family that is, in many ways, emblematic of the American dream and the American struggle.
My father, an immigrant from Iran, and my mother, born and raised in a small Nebraska town to parents who were among the first to organize employees at Goodyear’s local tire and rubber plant, taught my brother, Hassan, and me the importance of hard-work, family, and ambition. College sweethearts, my father earned a degree in Civil Engineering before becoming an upscale chef, while my mother worked for more than two decades as an office manager and bookkeeper before transitioning to entrepreneur, owning and operating a bakery and hotel in Cooke City, MT since 2004.
Like most families, we went through difficult times.
When I was 10, my parents divorced, in large part due to my father’s gambling addiction. Shortly thereafter, we filed for bankruptcy, lost our home, and my mother took a second job to make ends meet. During those next six years, growing up in a single-mother household, I witnessed a perfect example of courage, effort, and leadership that changed me as a person. My mother lifted my brother and I up even when the road ahead was seemingly insurmountable. Because of her strength, despite the turmoil, I excelled in school and started my first business online at age 14 during eBay’s first year.
When I was 15, my mother remarried and gave me the choice to move with her to Montana, or finish high school early and remain in Nebraska. I stayed, accelerated my class schedule, and graduated from high school at 16. I was now on my own. Within a year, I had enrolled at Southeast Community College, and at 19, I graduated with a degree in Architectural Engineering. Three days later, I accepted a draftsperson position with a local engineering firm, that ultimately transferred me to help start their Denver office a week after my 21st birthday.
Shortly after moving to Colorado in 2004, I purchased a home in Denver’s La Alma / Lincoln Park neighborhood where I’ve lived ever since. I immediately fell in love with Denver and started immersing myself in my new home.
I sought out volunteer opportunities and friends and discovered S.A.F.E.R., a group aiming to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of cannabis in Denver. Frustrated that 11,000 people went to jail every year in Colorado for low-level cannabis possession, creating barriers to succeeding in their lives, I got involved. This began a decade-plus of advocating through volunteerism and business for forward-thinking social policy that is more compassionate in how we address drug use and homelessness as matters of public health.
The relationships formed during this social policy work also crafted the next chapter in my life as I ventured again into entrepreneurship.
In 2008, I left my position as an associate of the engineering firm and exhausted my life’s savings to buy a struggling pizzeria in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. It was a risk and having never run a restaurant or made a pizza, this move also left me with no income. Because of this, I rented out my home rather than lose it and moved into a tent in my backyard. I gave away all my belongings and spent three months in that tent before moving onto a friend’s couch in Capitol Hill for another six months. Today, Sexy Pizza has three locations in central Denver and will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in 2018.
In early 2009, I was able to move back into my home, at which point I co-founded Denver Relief with $4,000. Denver Relief would go on to become the longest continuously operated cannabis business in Colorado and a national industry model for creating positive value to communities and promoting environmental stewardship until its sale in 2016 to Willie Nelson. Denver Relief also became a model for other best practices in this nascent industry. I was fortunate enough to help spread these across the country through Denver Relief Consulting (DRC), which I co-founded in 2011. Over the next five years, DRC would become an international leader in cannabis policy and business startups, assisting clients and partners in more than a dozen states, DC, Puerto Rico and Canada. Along the way I co-founded Sexpot Comedy in 2011, Birdy magazine in 2015, and art& in 2016 as a way to empower Denver creatives.
I wanted to do more for our city with my business and policy experience, so I joined the board of directors for many organizations near and dear to my heart.
I have pushed myself, joining the boards of the Harm Reduction Action Center, Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra, Art District on Santa Fe, Students for Sensible Drug Policy, National Cannabis Industry Association, Resource Innovation Institute, and Minority Cannabis Business Association. I’ve continued to give and learn as co-chair of a committee within the Denver Department of Environmental Health that produces an annual sustainability symposium, and holding the same position for the Alternative Solutions Advocacy Project, which brought to fruition Denver’s first tiny home village in 2016. I’ve also been a mentor in the Denver Kids program for almost a decade and am in the process of adopting two young girls who will desperately need someone when their 86 year old mother is unable to care for them any longer.
It’s working with this wide array of people that opened my eyes to the inequity that is being built in Denver and the lack of leadership in preventing more harm.
I am running for Mayor to fight for those around me and to serve the city I love - the city that over the course of the past 14 years has provided me with the opportunity to make something of myself, to be engaged with those around me, and to find ways to help others. I want Denver to work for all its people the way it’s worked for me. More than anything, I believe this campaign isn't about me. This campaign is about the people of Denver and a movement of people who want to be heard and want their city government to work for them. I hope you'll get involved in any way you can. Each person has a valuable way to contribute and we'll need everyone doing what they can to make this movement a reality. So, please, join us. Let's secure a Denver that works for all its people."
Saira for Congress
Running for Congress in Colorado’s District 1
"Saira Rao is the daughter of Indian immigrants. She is an educator, lawyer, and entrepreneur, 13 years married, and a mother of two. Saira moved to Colorado for the space to grow. For the mix of city, mountains, and rural life we all know and love.
Six years ago Saira co-founded In This Together Media to remedy the lack of brown, black, LGBTQ, poor, and disabled voices in kids’ media. She and her business partner were told by the establishment that they didn’t understand how media works. That they were in over their heads. That it’s never been done that way.
But their drive was insatiable. Kids books were—and continue to be—overwhelmingly white, male, straight, cisgendered. (Sound like any other institutions you know?) Over the past six years they have worked to give a voice and a platform to those who have been traditionally marginalized.
Today Saira and her business partner’s business is a thriving success. They’re about to publish a young adult anthology featuring 48 essays from leaders describing their teenage struggles. Leaders like Patrisse Khan-Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter; teen trans activist Gavin Grimm; and Danielle Vabner, a young woman who lost her baby brother at the Sandy Hook massacre.
Saira is wired to listen, to provide an outlet for others to tell their stories and to amplify them as loud as possible. “I have big, willing ears to listen,” she says. “And a big, unapologetic mouth to spread stories for change.”
And now Saira opens this passion to the people of the First Congressional District. The people with stories who have been traditionally disenfranchised and ignored."
From the personal impacts gentrification has on us to what it's like to work at Casa Bonita, the idea behind Hello? Denver? Are You Still There? is to get folks off social media and into real life to talk face-to-face about everything serious and silly that matters, happens to, and characterizes Denver.
Artists, activists, city planning experts, political strategists, social service and non-profit professionals and nosy neighbors are invited to my table to cross paths and share ideas and perspectives about our rapidly changing city.
Whether you’re a fifth generation Coloradan or you just moved here last week, you are invited to sit in on the last Thursday evening of every month as I get my friends from across the political, social and cultural spectrum together for some real talk.

Dune Altar / Funeral Party Records
Glaare is a three-piece post-punk band from Los Angeles. Cherry picking the best elements of darkwave, dream pop and goth-rock, they have been a burgeoning force in the LA scene since their formation in 2012. In a scene where style often blurs out substance, Glaare meticulously craft real songs with real hooks and intricate yet subtle arrangements.
Funeral Party Records
Fearing continue to carve out a niche for themselves in the current post-punk revival. Fearing's use of dual vocal harmonies, effects laden guitars, and icy synths would make them right at home among the early 4AD roster.
