Governor Hickenlooper’s Transportation Vision

I’m really pleased to report that I was appointed to the transportation committee of the Governor-elect’s transition team. It’s a diverse group: some other mayors, county commissioners, transportation experts, Front Rangers and West Slopers, folks associated with other stakeholder groups like the construction industry. It says a lot about Golden that we are represented on the transition team. We had our first meeting last week, a listening session in Frisco on Saturday, and another meeting coming up on Thursday afternoon. I would welcome any and all ideas about the Governor’s transportation agenda for the next four years. The specific questions:

  • Do you have ideas about what the new governor’s transportation agenda should include?
  • What “action agenda” items he should consider in his first 100 days?
  • Who the next CDOT director should be?

Please shoot me an email (jacobzsmith@gmail.com) or add a comment on my Facebook page if you have any thoughts. I need them by Thursday at noon.

Heading home from the listening session in Frisco on Saturday.
