Letter from Mayors:

Dear Citizens of Colorado,
Businessmen, community leaders and elected officials from across the political spectrum and throughout Colorado are banding together with a shared message: Please Don’t Hurt Colorado. People who seldom agree on anything are setting aside their differences and working together this fall because they share the belief that Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 go too far.

A great deal of analysis has been conducted on the potential impacts of these measures. The findings from both sides of the aisle are that the unintended consequences of these measures will be widespread job losses, expanded classroom sizes and persistent budget deficits at the state and local levels.

The Metro Mayors Caucus is a collaborative regional organization comprised of 39 mayors from across the Denver metropolitan area. Our members represent cities large and small, urban and semi-rural and come from varied and diverse political backgrounds. We often have very different views on the appropriate size and role of government and how services should be funded and provided; but today we stand before you united in our opposition to Amendments 60, 61 and Proposition 101 because we concur that they simply go too far and will hurt Colorado’s citizens and undercut our economic recovery.

Please learn more about these proposals and their serious detrimental impacts and vote No onAmendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101.
