“Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper stopped by Frisco on Monday morning to participate in a roundtable discussion with members of the public, hoping to touch base with area stakeholders and discuss the rollout of his agenda ahead of November’s senate race.”

“Hickenlooper, who served as Colorado’s governor from 2011-2019, has kept busy since leaving office, including diving into a now defunct presidential campaign — what he called a bucket-list item for himself  — before returning home to throw his hat into the ring of Democratic candidates hoping to take on incumbent Republican Cory Gardner in the 2020 Senate election.”

“During the conversation, Hickenlooper gave some casual opening remarks before shifting into questions and suggestions from participants in attendance.”

“‘I have been frustrated by Washington as a governor,’ Hickenlooper said. ‘Again and again, you get frustrated by things that are obvious and should be bipartisan. … What we announced last week is the framework … some of the basic things that Washington should be doing, such as not just celebrating our public lands but making sure we have more access to it. In a place like Summit County, that is clearly precious.'”
