DENVER (AP)-Gov. John Hickenlooper toured Colorado after his inauguration to ask business owners their ideas for improving the economy. On Friday the governor takes the tour to his backyard with a public jobs meeting in Denver.
Hickenlooper planned to meet with dozens of business owners and local officials at the University of Denver. The meeting is part of what the Democratic governor calls his "Bottom-Up Economic Development" plan.
The governor says he is asking for ideas from business owners before submitting economic development plans later this year. The Denver meeting is the governor's ninth and is open to the public.
