Hickenlooper Attends Forum at CMU
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. On Friday morning Governor Hickenlooper took the stage at Colorado University, allowing business and community leaders to ask him anything.
Before he opened up the floor for questions, Hickenlooper touched on issues including gun legislation, health and education.
Audience members brought up issues ranging from a state water plan to transportation to the Bureau of Land Management's Resource Management Plan.
Governor Hickenlooper said "this is one Colorado," to audience members, saying he wants the whole state to have a voice on these critical issues.
President and CEO of the Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce, Diane Schwenke, said, "I was encouraged that the governor did talk about the fact that we did go look at a research park and maybe we can help direct more research dollars to places like Colorado Mesa University that spurs that innovation, results in that start-up company or other things."
At 11:30 a.m. Hickenlooper will join community leaders and elected officials to visit a proposed new shooting and education facility off the I-70 Cameo exit.
At 1:30 p.m. he will join business and community leaders at a forum to discusses economic development, healthcare and education at the Glenwood Springs City Hall.
