Former Gov. Roy Romer tells Hickenlooper to lead a ‘movement’ to repeal TABOR
Gov. John Hickenlooper invited three former Democratic governors to offer advice for his second term at his inaugural celebration Tuesday evening.
It started lighthearted with former Gov. Dick Lamm. But then former Gov. Roy Romer gave him an earful.
“This is an evening both of fun and seriousness,” Romer started. “I’m going to be the serious part.”
“My advice is, governor, lead a movement in this state to repeal the TABOR amendment,” he said to cheers from the crowd at the Fillmore Auditorium, where guests paid $100-a-plate to attend. “We need to invest in the future of our children’s education and the infrastructure of this state. We need to return that power, that authority, that decision, to the people’s representative, the legislature and the governor.”
