This year in Colorado, Public Education is on the ballot!
YES on Proposition FF
This November, Colorado voters can ensure access to free, nutritious meals made with quality ingredients for all students in public schools by voting YES on Proposition FF.
No child should go hungry because they can’t afford a nutritious meal – More than 60,000 kids in Colorado can’t afford school meals, but don’t qualify for free or reduced-price lunches, and 2 out of every 5 Colorado families struggle to put food on the table for their children. When kids go hungry, their academic performance and long-term development suffers. We can help end childhood hunger by voting YES on Proposition FF.
YES on Proposition GG
In Colorado, it is the voters who make the most important tax policy and school funding decisions. That's why it's critical that they have unbiased reliable information about the ballot measures in front of them.
Proposition GG requires that, for any ballot initiative asking voters to approve a state income tax change, the question must include a simple table showing what the proposed changes will mean for their family's finances and how the tax changes will impact Coloradans across the income levels. That way, voters will see the entire picture- right on the ballot.

NO on Proposition 121
Proposition 121 is an initiative that would hurt Colorado and Coloradans in 2 ways: 1. It would reduce state revenue that could be used to pay teachers and support students by $1 Billion in the first two year alone.2. It gives the wealthiest Coloradans the biggest tax breaks. In fact, if Proposition 121 passes, those who make more than $1 million a year will receive more than 50% of the tax cut.
YES on Issue 1BEagle County School District has a critical shortage of bus drivers. Creating a regional transit authority will support and assist in getting kids to school and recreational activities. Additionally, the valley-wide coordination will help distribute bus driver resources, eliminating competition for hiring and fostering collaboration and coordination.
