Gov. John Hickenlooper says he will sign executive orders promoting jobs as one of his first orders of business.
In his inaugural address on Tuesday, Hickenlooper said one of the orders will require the state to partner with local communities in creating jobs and designing economic plans for those communities.
The second will emphasize global opportunities and create the Governor’s Trade and Tourism Ambassador Program.
Hickenlooper is promising to enlist Colorado businesses and people in other states and countries who have a stake in Colorado to spread the word that Colorado welcomes innovation and new investment.
The final order will help counties cut red tape.
