Governor John Hickenlooper
Governor Hickenlooper sent a warning to his Democratic colleagues this week, letting them know he’ll veto a bill if it is passed as written. Will Legislative Dems heed the warning or call his bluff?
Gov. John Hickenlooper’s third State of the State address was his first with two Democrat majorities. He used this opportunity to inform his colleagues on what he would like to see, and more importantly, what he would not like to see, this session.
Thanks to voters in Longmont who recently decided to ban fracking in their city, Governor John Hickenlooper is facing a growing revolution around the issue of hydraulic fracturing and he is caught square in the middle.
An already hot summer in Colorado is getting even hotter thanks to wildfires and gang violence. State and City leaders must react quickly before the summer of 2012 is remembered for all the wrong reasons.
A health care company needs to hire hundreds of new workers in the Denver Metro Area right now.
Governor Hickenlooper may have called a special session to address the Civil Unions bill, but just because it is called special doesn’t mean it will change anything.
It didn’t take a rocket scientist, or political scientist for that matter, to predict that voters were not in the mood to raise taxes in 2011. Governor John Hickenlooper came to that realization last year, so the fact that nearly every tax or mill levy increase in the metro failed is not a shocker.
