Recent deregulation at the Consumer Protection Agency at the federal level has sparked concerns about how Coloradans will be protected. On Thursday, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock plans to lay out at least some of his local solutions. The mayor will take part in a forum called A Predatory Economy: Denver's Call to Action put on by the Bell Policy Center, a left-leaning, Denver-based economic think tank. The 3 p.m. event is in the former Denver Post building' auditorium at 101 W. Colfax in downtown Denver.

Thanks, Steve, said no one. It was an agonizing seven hours of testimony about his alleged prevalent sexual harassment. Several of his then-fellow legislators urged him to quit. The number of accusers, the number of allegations and the number of times Lebsock sought to retaliate ultimately delivered a landslide vote.
