Colo. businesses say they’re not getting DNC work

DENVER ” The owners of some Colorado companies say they’ve been passed over for work for the Democratic National Convention.

The convention committee won’t disclose where its business is going but does say vendors should see an increase in business as the convention gets closer.

Chris Lopez, a spokesman for Denver’s host committee, says union restrictions and the needs of people planning events might be limiting who gets convention work.

For example, printers used by the DNCC must be union shops and there’s only a handful of such businesses in Colorado.

Meanwhile, Epicurean, one of the largest caterers in Denver, already has exclusive contracts at the Denver Performing Arts Complex and Invesco Field at Mile High.
