Join thousands on July 12 and support the Colorado Priorities ballot measure


Statewide, grassroots group schedules petition signing events to allow Coloradans to vote their values in November

Great Education Colorado Action will be holding petition signing events this Tuesday, July 12, 2016, at multiple locations across the front range in order to support Initiative #117. Known as “Colorado Priorities,” this measure will allow Colorado to invest in education, transportation, mental health and senior services by using revenue the state has already collected—without raising taxes. The measure requires that at least 35% of the additional revenue be directed to education, including pre-school through 12th grade education, vocational education and higher education. In addition, at least 35% will go into transportation projects and any remaining revenue must go toward mental health and senior services.

This initiative fixes an outdated budget policy that no longer meets the needs of Colorado. With the growth that Colorado has experienced since the early 90’s—when the budget policy was put in place—it’s become clear that we are not taking care of essential public services, such as education.
