Senate President Morgan Carroll
Senate District 29

Putting Your
Interests Above Special Interests!

I am proud to represent Senate District 29 (Aurora and eastern Arapahoe County) at the Capitol. The people of Arapahoe County do not want political partisanship or special interests controlling government. Rather they have asked for real, bi-partisan or non-partisan solutions to the issues facing all of us. I am committed to doing just that.

It is my goal to represent everyone in our District, whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent or defy traditional labels. Please know you are all welcome to contact me any time.  I would love to hear from you and I look forward to meeting you and am honored to be your voice at the Capitol.

Statement on the State of the State

Gov. Hickenlooper delivered the yearly State of the State today, Jan. 9.  Pres. Morgan Carroll (D-Aurora) issued the following statement regarding it:

Senate President Morgan Carroll at 2014 State of the State address.

“The Governor gave a State of the State that acknowledges our economic growth and lays a framework for how we can build on that growth.  His objectives directly align with ours.

He called for us to invest in K-12 education and higher education; we are on track to do that.  Through the College Affordability Act, we’re implementing his recommendation of allocating an additional $100 million to higher education, and adding a tuition cap of 6 percent.     

He called for us to be efficient with the state budget and increase reserves, and we couldn’t agree more.  The legislature has a tradition of living within our means and working together to balance our budget every year.  This year will be no exception.

I look forward to working with Gov. Hickenlooper throughout the legislative session on those objectives and several others.  When we put politics aside, and unite - we can build a stronger Colorado.”
