Roberts Makes Friendly Wager with Denver Mayor

CHARLOTTE, NC — Charlotte mayor Jennifer Roberts leaves for Santa Clara Friday. We were with Roberts Wednesday when she called Denver Mayor Michael Hancock to make a friendly Super Bowl wager.

Roberts’ trip is costing tax payers a little more than $5,000. The trip is considered official city business.

“It is a working trip,” said Roberts. “Just like it is for the Panthers. They’re working hard. And I want to be supportive. And I want Charlotte to be well represented and marketed. We’re going to bring back some great connections.”

When the Panthers win, Denver’s mayor will post a photo wearing a Cam Newton jersey. If the Broncos win, Mayor Roberts will wear a Peyton Manning jersey.
