Gov.-elect Hickenlooper announces statewide transition co-chairs

DENVER — Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov.- elect Joe Garcia today announced Partners for Colorado’s 16 statewide co-chairs and the co-chairs of 23 issue committees.

“We are thankful these men and women have accepted our call to represent all of Colorado as we examine the critical issues facing our state,” Hickenlooper said. “This diverse group of leaders will also help the Hickenlooper-Garcia transition team recruit and evaluate the best candidates to oversee numerous state agencies.”

The statewide co-chairs and committee co-chairs will be responsible for creating committees to examine critical issues facing Colorado. Each committee will meet in the coming weeks to develop strategic plans that can be used by Hickenlooper and Garcia when they take office Jan. 11.

Each committee has two to four co-chairs and will be formed by Nov. 9. To see a list of the committees or to volunteer for a committee, go to www.PartnersforColorado.com. Each committee will have approximately two dozen members.

The public can submit comments via the Hickenlooper-Garcia transition website. Also on the website, there is information about how to apply for Cabinet-level positions or jobs in the Governor’s Office, and how to volunteer for the Hickenlooper-Garcia transition team. A separate organization will coordinate the Inauguration and related events.

Partners for Colorado will hold 11 transition meetings in cities throughout the state on Nov. 13 and Nov. 20. Each meeting is open the public and will focus on economic development, as well as the work of specific committees. Participants will be asked to brainstorm suggestions for the most important challenges and opportunities facing the state.
