“I think feeling the warmth of the holidays and also knowing we have a really wonderful governor’s residence here that acts as Colorado’s white house. This is an icon of civic pride and I hope they walk away saying this is our home… it represents who we are,” said Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund spokeswoman Nicole Bopp.
