French Honorary Consul to Colorado Steps Down

For 17 years, France has been represented in Colorado by a charming, plucky woman named Frieda Sanidas Leason. As French honorary consul, she’s solved problems with visas, payments and passports, among other duties. Now, at the end of her tenure, life’s gotten lofty for Leason. The French ambassador recently came to town to present her with France’s highest recognition: the Legion d’Honneur. She’s talks to Ryan Warner.
