Mayor Hancock's Chief of Staff throws shade at 420 organizers with post-PrideFest photo

Following the Pride parade Alan Salazar, Mayor Michael Hancock's Chief of Staff, threw a little shade at the 420 rally that lost its permit after Civic Center got trashed.

DENVER - Okay, so it's not exactly Phoenix outside, but with this week's temperatures in Denver, we're all going to need some shade.

Thankfully we didn't have to look too far on Monday.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock's Chief of Staff, Alan Salazar, threw a little shade at the organizers of the 420 rally, who lost their permit this year when Civic Center Park was trashed.

Salazar posted a picture on Facebook and wrote:

"Civic Center Park the morning after PrideFest 2017 - green and clean. Thanks to organizers of one of the biggest people events in our city for taking care of the park. LGBTQ folks know how to party and clean up after the party is over. Love em."

Salazar is nodding at this:

A ton of trash was left behind after the 4/20 rally in the same park, back in April.

Organizers ended up getting penalized for that trash - $12,000.

The organizers aren't allowed to hold a rally for the next three years. They have appealed that decision.
