Tuesday, February 4, 2020

DENVER - Governor Jared Polis released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address:  

“We are at a pivotal moment in our nation’s history where we must reject the manufactured division that is being shoved forward for the sake of political gain and work together on bold efforts to expand opportunity for all. That’s why in Colorado, we’re working to invest in education, fighting to lower the cost of health care, address the economic and moral threat of climate change and create good-paying jobs. 

“I appreciate Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s acknowledgment of the important value and success of our bipartisan free full-day kindergarten program which is saving parents money and helping Colorado’s students.”
