Meet the mini-mayor
Sunlight Mountain Resort announced its new mini-mayor this week. Rifle resident Colby Rogers, 5, beat out incumbent Gabby Noyes, 9, by garnering 3,948 votes. Rogers hopes to encourage other kids to ski or snowboard and to add spaghetti to the resort’s menu, among other goals.
In a press release, her mom, Jade Rogers, said she hopes Colby will “improve her public speaking skills … (and also will) understand that being a leader means helping people.” The mini-mayor receives a free season pass, new skis or snowboard and a position on the resort’s executive table.
