QUIDNUNC: Will Mayor Mike rue the Tay?


Quidnunc, whose name comes from the Latin  “what now,” is out and about as often as possible  to bring you news overheard in elevators,  rest rooms and spied  in various e-mail boxes.

QUID HAS HEARD that Mayor Mike says, “Let them bring cake.” Seems that Mayor Mike Coffman is the newest elected target of those who’ve had it with the city trying to roll past the death of Elijah McClain and others run afoul of the Aurora Police Department. Back before all was behind the mask and the Zoom page, angst over GEO ICE protests was also all the rage. It was back then, barely a year ago, that the official meetings of Aurora Nabobs on Parade were regular targets for protesters that filled the hulls of city hall to take loud and visceral shots at former Mayor of HewVille  Bob LeGare , who mostly tried to just keep the peace at a time when there were a few crumbs left. Not only did Hizzoner draw names like Mayor F*** Boy from people stopping by to attend and shut down the city council meeting, they at one point actually brought him a cake. Near the end of his term — he was appointed to the seat after the death of Steve Hogan but oddly didn’t want to keep the job — protesters dropped by to berate him from the lectern and celebrated the end of his tenure with a F*** Boy cake. That was then. Now, Denver School Board director and frequent Elijah McClain protester Tay Anderson has picked up the mantle. Seems that the current Hizzoner refuses to let Aurora become the next Portland. This week, he got seriously sassy about domestic terrorists-not-terrorists-sorry-not-sorry tearing up city hall last week. That prompted Anderson to tweet that Aurora is only 19,000 registered  voter signatures away from recalling Mayor Mike. Smells like cake with a file in it. More on this later.
