WASHINGTON - On Friday, October 26, 2001, Citizens for a Sound Economy hosted Colorado Governor Bill Owens at an early morning breakfast reception. The governor discussed several economic initiatives that have been implemented at the state level throughout the country, the importance of school choice, reducing taxes, and the direction of the conservative movement. Over 50 people, including Capitol Hill staff members, the media, and other conservative groups attended the event.
Gov. Owens addresses the audience
at CSE’s office in Washington DC.
He has also helped develop a state plan to fight federal EPA regulations that curtail private property rights. In addition, under his leadership Colorado is considered to be one of the best states in providing choice to parents concerning their children’s education.
Staff members from Capitol Hill and
conservative groups filled the room.
In his concluding remarks, Gov. Owens indicated that the conservative movement has become more successful in recent years, but conservatives have to do a better job in presenting their argument and "putting on a smile." He praised the work that CSE activists have done on tort reform and school choice and said CSE is making a difference.
