CORA Law Trips Up Denver Water

Denver Water learned the hard way to watch what you put in emails when you are subject to the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA). In a 7News investigation related to a bonus awarded to Denver Water’s CEO, investigative reporter Tony Kovaleski captured this email exchange:

Employee #1: “Where are you? We just got a CORA from Channel 7.”

Employee #2: “Home … you can call me. What are they looking for?”

Employee #1 “Glad you’re home and sitting down. You may want to pour a shot of tequila.”

Employee #2: “Fuck. Is it about pension? Or rates? Who is it from?”

7News also published invoices totaling $3,200 from Denver crisis management firm Rockford Gray to media train Denver Water’s CEO and one of its former board members.
