Governor-elect meets with new speaker of state house

DENVER (AP) - Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper is promising to scour the state for Cabinet and commission members and he promises to consider Democrats, Republicans and anyone else who qualifies for the job.

Hickenlooper says what happens in the first six months will define his governorship for the next four years. Hickenlooper met Friday with the new incoming House Speaker, Republican Frank McNulty. McNulty says he takes Hickenlooper at his word that he will be as non-partisan as possible and promised to do
the same.

McNulty also appointed freshman Rep. Jon Becker of Fort Morgan to the Joint Budget Committee that sets state spending priorities. McNulty says the appointment shows the GOP wants fresh, new leadership.

Hickenlooper takes office on Jan. 12.
