The Colorado Metro Mayors Caucus held its annual retreat Jan. 12 at the PACE Center in Parker. Area mayors Ron Rakowsky of Greenwood Village and Jackie Millet of Lone Tree are on the executive committee of the 40-member caucus.
At the retreat, Rakowsky announced that the caucus’ first Stephen D. Hogan Award was being conferred on former Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon.
“Our colleague, Steve Hogan was an extraordinary leader, who demonstrated for us all how one person’s life, spent in public service, could shape their community for success. and whose selfless work for E-470 and in state and local government, over decades, continues to bear fruit for his city, his region and his state,” Rakowsky said. “When we lost Steve last year, the Metro Mayors Caucus established the Stephen D. Hogan award, to honor Steve’s contributions, to encourage others to emulate his leadership, and to recognize those who do. We do not intend this to be an annual award but a special acknowledgement of a mayor who demonstrates the best attributes of leadership and dedication on behalf of the Caucus.
Adding, “This award is presented after nomination by one or more mayors, and the concurrence of the entire membership of the caucus. It gives me great pleasure to announce the first Stephen D. Hogan Award on behalf of the Metro Mayors Caucus, to Cathy Noon, former mayor of the City of Centennial, former chair of the Metro Mayors Caucus, whose tireless work on our issues, particularly transportation and mobility funding, motivated our membership to bestow this honor.”
Becky Hogan, widow of former Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan, presented the award to Noon.
