Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper says he will spend the first 100 days of his administration trying to find budget cuts that will cause the least damage and provide maximum benefit.

Hickenlooper made the promise to state lawmakers on Thursday as they gathered at the Capitol to elect new leaders.

Hickenlooper congratulated Republicans on winning back the majority in the House and promised all 100 legislators that he wants them to have a role in shaping state policy.

He also warned lawmakers, including fellow Democrats, that he won't give them credit if they don't take part in putting those policies together.

    Responding to John from Salida's comment: Did you read the article? It says that they are talking about budget cuts, not tax increases. Jeez - the new administration has not even taken office yet and already John from Salida is putting words into their mouth.

    The new Democratic administration has not even taken office yet and they are already considering a tax increase, a sales tax increase, or a special levy. My God ! Don't these people understand what shape we are in?
