Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach had a front-row seat to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s State of the State address. He called Hickenlooper “a marvelous example of citizen leadership,” and said the governor has a pro-business approach to governing.

“We’re trying to work toward being the most business-friendly city in the state, so knowing that we can be partners with the state on that is important,” Bach said.

The mayor was also glad to hear the governor raise the issue of water conservation and the state’s droughts, which in turn are connected to wildfires like the Waldo Canyon fire.

“The governor is one of the best collaborators I’ve ever known,” said Bach. “He worked tirelessly across party lines in this last year, and I hope his fellow Democrats will reach out in the same way this session.”
