“Coloradans deserve their Governors respect and listening-ear everyday, not just in the days after announcing a reelection bid.
(Lakewood, CO) This week, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper began his own version of a ‘listening tour in rural Colorado. Hickenloopers venture out of Denver comes just days after making official his bid for reelection.
Candidate for Governor Tom Tancredo commented about Hickenloopers tour by saying,”I find it interesting that Hickenlooper is suddenly heading to rural Colorado and telling them he wants to listen to them. Up until now, hes done everything possible to ignore these areas of our State.
Tancredo added,”Where was his listening ear to rural Colorado when supporting and signing extreme gun control measures? Where was his listening ear when it came to putting his signature on SB252? Where was his listening ear when so many extreme liberal policies passed through the Legislature and he didnt find the courage to veto even them? He signed them all!
“This Governor has turned such a deaf ear to the folks of rural Colorado that we have several counties wanting to escape Hickenloopers Colorado and form a 51st State. Tancredo continued,”How can anyone forget he is on tape referring to the ‘backwards thinking of rural Colorado. I guess he mustered up the courage to venture out of Denver to a part of our State that he finds so backwards.
Tancredo concluded,”This is an obvious campaign event that sadly is being funded by the Colorado taxpayers, rather than his campaign. That fact alone is another show of disrespect for the people of Colorado. The entire trip is disingenuous. Coloradans deserve their Governors respect and listening-ear everyday, not just in the days after announcing a reelection bid.
