Mayor Michael Hancock of Denver, Colorado says there is no more important initiative that any elected official can be focused on than "trying to get America back to work, right now."
Hancock believes that "this Job Act is an opportunity for all elected officials at every level but particularly here in Washington, in Congress and the White House, to finally put aside our differences and stand again for the people of America and begin to put them to work."
President Obama will be in Denver today to speak about the American Jobs Act, his plan that will immediately put workers back on the job and put more money in the pockets of working Americans, and Hancock says that what benefits Denver in the package is "going to be the same thing that benefits all cities across this country large and small, you give employers the incentive to bring people on the payroll."
