The Denver Post announced this morning that Governor Hickenlooper and Mayor Hancock have officially created a committee to explore the possibility of bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics. Colorado won the bid for the Winter games in 1976, but voters turned it down by passing a measure that blocked the use of tax money for funds.
Surely the Governor and Mayor have learned from the past and have their committee exploring all of the financial options to make the olympics happen in Colorado. Starkey Productions is extremely excited about this possibility, not only from an internal perspective, but also for the state as a whole.
The Salt Lake City games in 2002 raised billions of dollars for the city, along with creating thousands of jobs. Needless to say, many of these jobs were created within the hospitality, tourism, and events sector. Colorado would be the perfect setting for a Winter Olympics and we encourage you to CONTACT THE GOVERNOR if you feel the same way!
