Seventh-graders in Rivera's rearview

Posted By on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 6:30 PM

The Colorado Municipal League is issuing a challenge to the state's seventh-graders: Write an essay explaining how to lead a city government.

Word on the street is that Mayor Lionel Rivera is closely watching the contest, to see what advice our city's 13-year-olds will issue. Will they challenge his "leadership style"? Point out his failings with the USOC? Criticize the big salaries of some city employees?

Mayor: You think you can do better, punk?
  • Mayor: You think you can do better, punk?

Can the Rivera administration stand another written attack from uppity intellectuals after barely surviving Broadmoor CEO Steve Bartolin's spanking e-mail? And what if the brats put down their cell phones long enough to demand a response to their ideas for reform? Can seventh-graders be safely herded into a task force whose findings can be buried and ignored?

Time will tell. Time...will...tell.

For now, the mood is tense at City Hall.
