State of Colorado Archives: on Jobs


John Hickenlooper: Sustainable jobs are created by the private sector

Our top priority must be jobs. Sustainable jobs are created by the private sector. Our task must be to support that job growth, while also maintaining the highest ethical and environmental safeguards. Listening to Coloradans, understanding the vision that every county has for its economic future, is the first step. We need to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit that is alive in Colorado. The economic plan we are proposing is not a top-down, government mandated scheme. It's a bottom-up, community-based initiative that will reflect the priorities of your constituents. On my first day as your new governor, I signed executive orders designed to spur job creation, attract investors and cut red tape.

Michael Bennet: Opposes Employee Free Choice Act & card-check

Buck also pressed Bennet to clarify his position on a union-organizing bill on which the Democrat has given only vague answers. Bennet said that he opposes the main thrust of the Employee Free Choice Act--allowing a majority of employees to form a union by signing a card instead of holding a secret ballot vote. "I think that the secret ballot rules shouldn't change," Bennet said. It was Bennet's most specific position to date on that bill, which has passed the House but stalled in the Senate.
