Michael Dino, a senior public policy advisor in the firm’s Denver office, was featured on WSCOtv.com and WSCO 9 on July 27, 2010, in a story about Charlotte’s bid to host the next Democratic National Convention.
Mr. Dino played a crucial role in Denver hosting the DNC in August 2008. Charlotte hopes to bring the next DNC to the North Carolina city. Denver and Charlotte are both up and coming and easy to get around cities, making them appealing places to hold conventions, Mr. Dino said.
Mr. Dino was the CEO of the Denver Host Committee when the convention took place in the mile-high city in 2008. He believes Charlotte has a good shot to host the next DNC.
“From an infrastructure point of view, I can’t think of any reason why Charlotte would be at a deficiency,” Mr. Dino said. “I think Charlotte needs to prove it can raise the money to support the convention production.”
