How Denver mayoral candidates Johnston, Brough would handle migrant surge
Denver mayoral candidates Mike Johnston and Kelly Brough debate critical issues facing the city ahead of the upcoming June 6, 2023 runoff election. Each candidate gave answers on a wide range of issues during the Denver7 debate. We are breaking down the debate into separate questions and topics to help Denver voters have a deeper understanding of each candidate’s positions. With the city spending an estimated $20 million caring for migrants, we wanted to know each candidate's plan to help people and curb costs of the more than 10,000 migrants that have arrived in the city.
