On November 2, 2010, Colorado voters soundly defeated Amendments 60, 61 & Proposition 101 by margins of more than two to one.
Colorado said NO to slashing taxes and slashing public services; no to dismantling our schools, colleges and universities; no to destroying the safety net that protects Colorado’s kids. Colorado chose public education and long-term investments in our kids and economy, over short-term, short-sighted individual gain.
As we look over the past three months, we’re proud of the work we did along with so many other organizations to stop the Amendments 60, 61, and Prop 101, but we regret that so many had to fight so hard just to stay where we are. (In fact, on Tuesday, November 2, the Governor proposed a 2011-12 budget that’s balanced through K-12 per pupil cuts for the third year in a row and minimum 9% higher ed tuition increases.)
Our takeaway is this: “We’ve been on defense long enough. It’s time to move Colorado forward.” If you agree, click here.
