After each of his three mayoral campaign wins, Wellington Webb and his supporters would hold up roadside signs thanking voters. Webb says his new autobiography is a similar kind of public thank-you to friends and family members. In it, the man who was mayor of Denver from 1991 to 2003 talks politics and personal matters. The revelations come from a man who admits to keeping much to himself, despite a public career that included stints as a state representative and Denver city auditor. The book is called, Wellington Webb: The Man, the Mayor and the Making of Modern Denver. Webb speaks with Dan Meyers.
