John Hickenlooper took the oath of office for his second term on Tuesday, marking profound changes wrought on the state during his first term and casting a hopeful eye toward the next four years. The self-described "incorrigible optimist" lauded the state economy's climb in the aftermath of the Great Recession, all while facing unprecedented floods, fires and mass-shootings, along with the dissolution of his own marriage, he noted in one of several remarkably personal notes struck during the Denver Democrat's second inaugural address.

    Jan 16, 2015 | Colorado Statesman

    After Gov. John Hickenlooper delivered a State of the State address Thursday that was widely regarded as a renewed pitch to bridge pending partisan trench warfare in the Capitol, lawmakers across the aisle seized the moment and grabbed the governor's outstretched hand.

    Dec 5, 2014 | Colorado Statesman

    Democrats young and, er, older alike toasted the holidays at what has become a traditional festive gathering thrown by the Denver Young Democrats on Thursday at the Governor's Residence - officially, it's the Boettcher Mansion - in Denver. Boasting the best attendance yet for the annual affair, with a crowd numbering 150, the organization celebrated silver linings in last month's election, when Republicans made gains in Colorado - unseating an incumbent U.S. senator for the first time in more than three decades and wresting control of the state Senate by a single seat - while Democrats helped Gov. John Hickenlooper buck a national wave to win a second term and the party held onto its majority in the state House.

    A large and eclectic crowd of movers and shakers from the political, business and non-profit arenas gathered at the Executive Residence on Nov. 13 to honor - and bid adieu - to one of the most powerful figures in state government. Even though she hasn't held an elective office, Roxane White has long been considered a firecracker of a force as Gov. John Hickenlooper's chief of staff, and before that as his key Roxane White, the lady in red, was feted earlier this month at a farewell party at the Governor's Mansion.
