Today, Governor John Hickenlooper delivered his forth State of the State speech in front of a joint session of the Colorado legislature.
Colorado Democratic Party Chairman, Rick Palacio, issued the following statement:
“While states across the country continue to struggle to recover from the economic downturn, under Governor Hickenlooper’s leadership, Colorado has moved from 40th to 4th in job creation nationwide and has seen job growth in nearly every sector and industry,” Palacio said.
“Additionally, in the last year Coloradans witnessed devastating natural disasters and unthinkable tragedies. All the while Governor Hickenlooper never lost sight of what was important – throughout all of these events his number one priority was restoring the livelihood of those Coloradans affected. It is this type of steady and pragmatic leadership that Coloradans value.”
