Scott McInnis Statement
(DENVER) – Scott McInnis, the front-runner for governor of Colorado, today issued the following statement on Governor Bill Ritter's decision not to seek a second term.
"Lori and I understand the pressures and sacrifices of public life and the toll that elected office can take on a family. We wish the Governor, First Lady and the entire family all the best in the years ahead. We want to thank them for their service to Colorado.
"This election is about the future of families all over the state, and how together, we can create quality jobs and put Colorado back on the path to prosperity. We must bring Colorado back from the toughest and most challenging economic times in decades through a fresh vision and new ideas that make our state first again.
"Our message of job creation, economic security and fiscal responsibility, which is clearly resonating throughout Colorado, will remain steady and strong. We will take this message of optimism and a deep belief in Colorado's future, neighborhood by neighborhood, and won't take one vote for granted.
"Together, we will turn Colorado around and build the bright future that our families deserve."
