Head's up! The Bad 3 are currently polling to win. Our fears could become reality.
Many voters may opt for the short-sighted relief promised by the initiatives, without understanding the long-term economic impact of voting for 60/61/101.
Truth is, the Bad 3 will carry Colorado into a far deeper recession than we are currently experiencing. If they pass, we can count on at least 70,000 lost jobs statewide, battered local business, pillaged public amenities, and severely diminished library service. People are flocking to libraries in these hard times, and we won't be able to sustain the demand. We live to serve, and we'll be hobbled.
Mail-in ballots hit homes October 12, and many Coloradoans vote by mail. Now is the time to take action. If you love libraries, please spread the word about the dire and factual impact Colorado faces. No single hero can rescue Colorado. We need a vast crew. We need YOU.
A glimpse of what we face... The campaign for Amendments 60 and 61 and Prop 101 sounds bad, but it may just work (CO Springs Independent).
