The after-dinner speaker tonight was former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb. A very popular former mayor, Webb served three terms. He is soft spoken, but imposing in size and carries a big stick. He got things done while he was Mayor. The Mayor said Denver has a vision – establish itself as a great American city willing to take on debt because they know it is worth it. KCMO City Manager Wayne Cauthen was his chief of staff before being recruited to Kansas City by Mayor Kay Barnes.
What he said about regionalism –“there’s talk and then there’s doing!”
