Mayor Michael Hancock delivered his annual State of the City address Monday above the new RTD Light Rail stop at Denver International Airport to a crowd of local and state politicians and community leaders from across the metro area. While Hancock said the state of Denver was strong, his assessment was called into question just a few hours later on the footsteps of the Wellington Webb Municipal Building by a group of homeless advocates, who criticized the city’s sweeps of homeless residents and use of certain funds to pay for such sweeps.
