Opinion by Gerald Trumbule
In a telephone conversation (7/17) with a DPR staff member I was told: "We cannot discriminate among applicants for Permits. If they meet all of the qualifications, they will be granted a Permit." As you will see below in the Department Policy and Procedures - Admission Based Events, no criteria are set for the applicant's purpose.
At one of the Task Force meetings mentioned in section 4.0 (pg 3) a citizen reportedly raised the question as to whether DPR would permit a KKK rally. The answer: "we would have to consider it."
So according to DPR, any discussion about the character of the Resig brothers, their websites, their alcohol distribution company, their KCCO brand, or their sexist method of promotion, is moot.
Also note Sec. 3.1 (pg2) "Under section 2.4.4 of the City Charter, the management, operation and control all parks and facilities owned by the City and County of Denver for park and recreational purposes are under the exclusive control DPR and its Manager."
Let's call this the Hancock Rule: Chive Off (meaning, I'm the boss and you are not).
