Hickenlooper and Ritter Say More Jobs Coming

Colorado Governor Bill Ritter joined Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper to announce earlier in December that both the State of Colorado and the City of Denver will work to speed up job growth.

If you want to talk more about what’s energizing our local economy, and how that’s affecting our local real estate market, call or email me today so we can talk.

It seems clear that Denver’s Mayor Hickenlooper is clear that it’s jobs that drive economic stability and growth for the area. I remember several years ago leaving lunch at the Wynkoop with John as he and I walked north (very briskly I might say) towards another one of his LODO projects. The main focus of our conversation was jobs and the economy.

Even long before he was mayor, Hickenlooper understood how to run a business well, and that creating and maintaining jobs in a marketplace meant a good economy. Today, he’s still making similar things happen as he pushes the acceleration of construction around the city including three libraries, and also a crime lab to pump cash, through increased employment, in the local economy.

Ritter said recently that he’s encouraging federal legislators to give more momentum to transportation and energy improvements for Colorado.

On the heels of these announcements, we in Boulder county watch energy related projects like the ConocoPhillips facility move forward, which promises new jobs for the Louisville and surrounding areas.

If you’re thinking of buying or selling real estate in our area, call or email me so we can talk about a strategy for you to meet your goals in 2009. With the promised transportation, energy and education improvements coming to our area, it’s bound to be an active year.

    More great stuff – you have me excited. I love how in the Boulder area we end up with great non-service job growth like the Conoco Phillips project. I was unaware of the “Crime Lab” can you shed more light on that and how you think that will affect jobs and or real estate in our area?
    I think we are primed for the one thing nobody is now expecting:
    A real estate Frenzy – nationwide, but especially in Boulder County.
    I’m so excited to be a survivor and thriver in the mortgage business because, while I enjoy competition, much of the “dead weight” has been cut.
    Warm Regards for a Great New Year.
