Mitchell on Golombek: “Expect heavy-handed government intervention”

Posted by Kelly Maher on January 26th, 2011

Ellen Golombek, nominee to head the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, is almost assuredly going to be confirmed by the state Senate today after her committee confirmation hearing on Monday.

After the hearing, I got some reaction from Sen. Shawn Mitchell, R-Broomfield, who had elicited Golombek’s political opposition against a previous nominee to that post.

“Ellen Golombek is an accomplished and impressive person. She’s obviously capable of doing the job,” said Mitchell. “I’m just afraid of the job she’s going to choose to do, because she’s on the far left end of the political spectrum. She’s devoted her career to progressive politics and to leading the labor movement and she’s kind of breaking the promises that Gov. Hickenlooper made when he campaigned as a pro-business, pro-employment, pro-jobs governor.”

“What can the business community expect…given her background? I’m afraid they can expect heavy-handed government intervention in siding with employees against employers on every disputed issue.”
