We are leveraging federal dollars, state assets and our new telecom law to ensure that all Colorado households, businesses, hospitals and schools--regardless of their location--have access to reliable, affordable broadband.
A. Colorado deserves better than what we've been getting. There's been a noticeable lack of leadership. That's the key to this. You wonder if anybody is really in charge. Morning after morning, your newspaper keeps telling us that things aren't going well, not by any stretch of the imagination. That tells me there's a weakness in management. There's a disconnect. Somebody's not paying attention. CDOT explains away a 10-hour traffic jam by saying it's the drivers' fault.
Q. Gov. Hickenlooper is a formidable candidate who is liked by the Republican business community.
A. He's liked by some. Every governor in Colorado is liked by people on both sides of the aisle because they're governor. But I don't think there's much dispute that our economy could be doing better, our job creation is not what it should be. We're simply not going in the right direction.

COIN gives us a unique opportunity to incubate entrepreneurship and facilitate the transfer of new ideas to the marketplace. While COIN is privately funded, we are asking for a modest public investment to continue the success we had with Arrow and GE. We are requesting $6 million to support the work of the Colorado Economic Development Commission, and $3 million for a revolving loan fund to provide low-risk gap financing so Colorado can compete with other states for film, video gaming and electronic media productions. These investments will repay the state many, many times over.
I believe we must also do more to protect our children from hate, pornography and violence on the Internet. It seems clear to me that any computer used by a child in a Colorado public school or public library should include filtering software to limit our children’s access to hate, pornography and violence on these publicly-funded computers.Our libraries don’t use taxpayer funds to buy hate magazines or pornographic magazines - they shouldn’t use taxpayer funds to allow access to the same material on-line.
