Stulp IBCC Chair and Special Policy Advisor to the Governor for Water

Hickenlooper also announced that John Stulp will be Special Policy Advisor to the Governor on Water and will chair the Interbasin Compact Committee. Stulp was the Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture, a position held since 2006. Stulp, a farmer and rancher from Prowers County, committed himself to furthering Colorado’s agricultural community during his time at the Department of Agriculture. He pursued Chinese trade opportunities, participated in Canadian and cattle industry roundtables and played a lead role in numerous other producer and industry events.
In his new role he will continue working with Colorado’s agricultural community, developing policies and solutions to how water is managed statewide. “John Stulp’s service to Colorado’s ranchers, farmers and universities is remarkable,” Hickenlooper said.  “And a cornerstone of that service is his deep understanding of our water resources and the need to manage them carefully and effectively.” Said Stulp “I am excited to be a part of the Hickenlooper team. Water has always been a critical part of Colorado’s quality of life. From food production to community development, to recreation, the environment, or how we create new jobs, Colorado’s water resources are an important piece of our future. Governor Hickenlooper’s emphasis on water and how we manage this limited resource speaks volumes, and I welcome this opportunity to be a part of Colorado’s water future.”
