Yes to roads. No to taxes: We’re thrilled to have submitted over 150,000 signatures to Fix Our Damn Roads to the Secretary of State Monday, more than enough to make it on the ballot. The reaction has been overwhelming!
Not only has Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers endorsed our #FixOurDamnRoads initiative, but so has the Colorado Springs Gazette. They trashed a competing crony effort, a massive 21% sales tax increase for transit, roads and a slush fund for cities, while urging a yes vote on ours. “We need better highways soon throughout the state, not promises of fuzzy and uncertain outcomes at too high a price. That means rejecting the 21 percent tax hike and saying yes to Fix Our Damn Roads.”
Looks like the Springs has had enough of the I-25 traffic jam and excuses why it can’t be fixed without another tax increase.
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel explained in an economy of words why we are working to stop Xcel Energy from closing two coal power plants and the games the powerful utility is playing to jack prices for ratepayers.
