CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Charlotte's outgoing city manager said he hopes the city follows in Denver's footsteps when it comes to attracting new businesses. Curt Walton retired on Friday after 33 years with the city. He said that since the 2008 Democratic National Convention, Denver has become home to more Fortune 500 companies. He also predicts that Charlotte will now play host to even more major events. "Whether that is a Super Bowl, whether that is a NATO conference; a G8 and even the Olympics have discussed. But I think that would be way down the road if that is in our future," said Walton. Walton was praised during his five years as city manager for leading Charlotte through the recession with few cuts and without raising taxes.
