Mayor Hancock Statement on the Inauguration of Gov. Jared Polis

DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock released the following statement on the historic inauguration of Jared Polis as the 43rd Governor of Colorado:

“This is an historic day for all Coloradans. Today, our new Governor laid out a bold vision for the future, one that puts the needs of working families first, elevates collaboration and advances the phenomenal progress our state has achieved over the past eight years under John Hickenlooper’s administration. As Gov. Polis said in his address, there’s nothing wrong about Colorado that can’t be fixed by what’s right about Colorado.

“With so much dysfunction in our nation’s capital and a White House displaying government at its worst, our state will show government at its best – embracing immigrants, expanding opportunity and affordability, and creating equity for all the people. I look forward to partnering with Gov. Polis and delivering a Colorado for All.”
