A Statement on Political Appearances at The Sink

October 17, 2016

BOULDER, Colo. (October 16, 2016)— The Sink would like to thank the Denver Post and the Daily Camera for making us aware of the Trump campaign’s plans to use our restaurant as a campaign location while Donald Trump Jr. is in Boulder, Colo. Normally, organizations ask permission to use our property – we would like to make it clear that the Trump campaign has not asked for our permission or made any attempt to contact us. We did not organize or encourage this event to happen.

We are humbled by the dignitaries and celebrities that have visited (and worked for) us over our long history, and we treat this visit no differently. 

Discrimination is still a primary issue in our society, and we will not engage in discriminatory behavior by refusing a guest to dine with us – we are not supportive of holding campaign events in or on our premises.

We understand that this event will trigger anger in some people. We hope that they will direct their energy toward this very important election, and hope they view The Sink as an organization that is willing to remain accessible to all political and personal viewpoints.

Go vote!
