“I’m sorry. I got a bad connection.”
– former Colorado Springs Mayor Lionel Rivera joked when asked what he thought about the mural that’s being painted on the roof of a downtown building to promote the city as the home of the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Rivera, who worked on the deal to keep the USOC from leaving Colorado Springs, said he would reserve judgment until the mural was completed.
“Hopefully it will be done professionally and look attractive, and it will shed good light on the city. It’s not done yet,” he said.
