What to tell your friends and neighbors
Successful education & outreach efforts
“ The position these districts, municipalities, and the county took by signing the joint resolution highlights the devastating consequences that would take place if any of these issues passed at the upcoming election. We stand unified in opposition to those who would attempt to take from our citizens their rights of local representation and their ability to plan for the future needs of our communities.”

“The key to effective public outreach in Douglas County has been the partnership between elected officials and the business community who are hosting community forums that emphasize the potential negative impacts to our state and local economies. These leaders understand, if such measures pass, how difficult it will be for Colorado to remain economically competitive and for our state to retain and grow jobs. Therefore, in partnership, we have taken strong positions in opposition to these ballot measures.”

“The impacts of these amendments would be dramatic to the City of Centennial if they pass. It is critical that as elected officials for our communities we continue to communicate how detrimental these amendments and proposition will be to our cities, towns, and state. Everything and everyone will be affected.”
Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon

“Our recent news conference offered representatives from local government, special districts, non-profit organizations, and school districts from across the southwest region the opportunity to tell their stories about the impacts the three ballot measures will have on their local communities.”

“Special districts are a vital part of Colorado’s infrastructure. Amendments 60 , 61 and Proposition 101 would cripple their ability to provide such basic services as fire protection and water and wastewater delivery. These ballot initiatives will essentially collapse local government.”
