Hickenlooper to replace Marostica as Economic Development director

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper has announced that he plans to replace Don Marostica as director of Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade.

The Denver Business Journal reports that Marostica was told Wednesday by John Huggins, co-chairman of Hickenlooper’s transition team, that the incoming governor has decided to do a clean sweep of his Cabinet posts and that Marostica was no longer being considered as a candidate to retain his job.

Marostica, a Republican, was elected in 2006 to represent a Loveland-area district in the Colorado House of Representatives and rose by his second term to become a member of the powerful Joint Budget Committee.
