Hickenlooper sworn in as Colorado’s 42nd governor

A geologist turned brewer who went on to become Mayor of Denver was sworn in today as Colorado’s 42nd governor.

John Hickenlooper delivered a 16-minute Inauguration speech in 10-degree weather on the West Steps of the state Capitol. He was joined by his wife, Helen, and son, Teddy.

“Our first task, our highest priority, is jobs,” Hickenlooper said. “We will help businesses expand and protect the jobs we have, we will attract new jobs, and we will unleash the entrepreneurial spirit that has always defined Colorado through her history.”
