DORE: MY TAKE ON THE 2014 STATE OF THE STATE

Judging from experience, there is a lot more non-sense than common sense with Hickenlooper

The Colorado Statesman

On Jan. 9, Governor Hickenlooper addressed a joint session of Colorado’s General Assembly to present the State of the State. As with many speeches, filled with platitudes and praise, it was short on substance. Contrary to my experience during the 2013 legislative session, where rural issues were forgotten and Republican bills were killed, the governor spoke about a new era of bipartisanship and a renewed focus on rural Colorado. I would like to take a moment and discuss my concerns with his speech.
