114th Anniversary Luncheon

About the Program

Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO)

John Hickenlooper is a lifetime entrepreneur who ran as a "dark horse" to become Mayor of Denver in 2003. He led the campaign to pass FasTracks, the largest regional transportation initiative in U.S. history, and helped convince the 34 metro mayors (2/3 Republican) to unanimously support and pass the 0.4% sales tax increase at the ballot. He recruited top managers to his cabinet from business and wherever he could find them. In eight years he had streamlined the total workforce by 7%, the first such reduction in Denver's history. 

Governor Hickenlooper applied his passion to create good government on a national level as well. His 2015 “Chair’s Initiative” at the National Governors Association, focusing on hiring, appropriate creation and implementation of regulations, and continuous improvement, was a bipartisan success. He is a great believer that governors, far more than Congress, can revive American democracy.

Governor John Kasich (R-OH)

Governor Kasich has led Ohio's comeback. Working with his fellow Ohioans he turned an $8 billion shortfall into a $2 billion surplus, cut taxes by $5 billion and has made Ohio one of the top job-creating states in the nation with over 460,000 new jobs.

As a Congressman, John Kasich was a chief architect of the last federal balanced budget. As chair of the House Budget Committee he led the effort to balance the federal budget for the first time since man walked on the moon. He also served 18 years on the House Armed Services Committee where he was a strong ally of President Reagan and his national security agenda. Governor Kasich remains one of the strongest advocates for a federal balanced budget amendment

The governor is originally from McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, a bluecollar town outside Pittsburgh where his father delivered mail for 30 years. He and his wife Karen have twin teenage daughters.
