Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is embraced by his mother before his State of the State address on Thursday morning.

Gov. Jared Polis gave his first State of the State address Thursday morning. During his campaign Polis, a Democrat, ran on a progressive platform and was expected to address some of those topics during his speech.

“We will get to work building an education system that provides every child with the opportunity to unlock the bright future that they deserve,” he said during his inaugural address. “We will get to work building a health care system that ensures families don’t have to choose between losing their homes and losing their health care or their life.”

Polis is Colorado’s first openly gay and first Jewish governor.
