DENVER — Five weeks after leaving Congress and being sworn in as Colorado's 43rd governor, Jared Polis sat down with Colorado Politics in his office at the state Capitol for one of his first extensive interviews since assuming his new post.

Already, the Democrat has begun remaking the office to suit his taste, hanging artwork from his personal collection alongside the massive iconic John Fielder landscape photo that looms over his desk.

In a wide-ranging conversation, Polis opened up about the speed of government under the dome and the prognosis for several of his signature initiatives -- and revealed what keeps him up at night.

"If we're going to make progress" on such goals as funding full-day kindergarten statewide and moving Colorado's power grid toward all-renewable energy, the former tech entrepreneur said, "there's a huge opportunity at the state level, and we're already doing it."
