Denver, CO – In a statement released on his personal Facebook page, former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb criticized fellow members of the Democrat party for a complete lack of African American hires and appointments.
This public criticism comes mere days after Governor John Hickenlooper fielded a question from a national news outlet regarding many of his characteristics, including his race, within the framework of a Presidential run.
Mayor Webb specifically singled out Jared Polis, Jena Griswold, Dave Young, and Phil Weiser in his critique. Webb’s stinging commentary punctuates a growing division with Democrat party ranks. After historic Democrat victories in Colorado – representatives of every progressive coalition are looking for their proportionate influence in the new political environment.
