Denver's Water Saver Cars

from Dave Felice

Denver Water Board Members:
It is extremely disappointing and discouraging to see that Denver Water has purchased vehicles made in a foreign country by a foreign firm as its representative "Water Saver" cars.
As a government entity, Denver Water has an implicit responsibility to promote the domestic economy by purchasing American products and services.
There are many U.S. vehicles in the same size and price range as the KIA Soul (a/k/a "hamster car").  Your "eco-friendly" description of these cars is also questionable.  For example, several vehicles made in the U.S. in the same class have better gas mileage.  Or better, why not purchase a hybrid or electric vehicle?
Thanks for your attention.  I would appreciate the courtesy of a reply.
