As mayor of Denver and as a two-term governor, Gov. John Hickenlooper oversaw and managed a major period of sustained growth in Colorado.
This discussion will feature Hickenlooper’s economic development initiatives, including affordable housing and public transportation, in urban and rural areas. He will also talk about the challenges and opportunities of the legalization and regulation of cannabis in Colorado, which was the first state to develop a regulatory market for recreational marijuana.
