Senate President John Morse
Senator John Morse was elected in November 2006 as the first Democratic Senator from El Paso County since 1974. It is a tremendous honor that humbles him greatly while he also understands it entails hard work! He serves as the Senate Majority Leader and Vice Chair of Legal Services.
About being involved with the civil service, John says: “I really love it. It brings me back to my early ambulance days when I used to bounce out of bed every morning and feel ‘I get to go to work today.’ I love to learn and there is so much to learn. I really think listening is a critical skill in public policy and I have always viewed that as one of my strengths.” This is not John’s only experience serving the public. He honorably served over nine years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and the Fountain Police Department for four years, two as Chief.
The consummate diplomat, Senator Morse truly believes that the art of compromise and building relationships is the way to lead Colorado to a rich and prosperous future.
