As we draw closer to election day next Tuesday, November 7th, this is a simple reminder to please vote, and please encourage others to do so as well. Voting is not only a right but a privilege and one that should not be taken lightly. It is how we peacefully enact change and is central to our life as an engaged citizen.
CSF is supporting Issue 2A. We believe it is critical to have sound infrastructure. We also believe infrastructure investments should be supported through public means as they benefit everyone living in Colorado Springs and the surrounding region. 2A is a sound proposal and will put Colorado Springs on a sustainable path for ongoing infrastructure needs. Please vote YES on 2A.
Equally important, particularly from an economic development standpoint, we encourage you to carefully evaluate the various school district initiatives on the ballot. High quality K-12 education is essential in our ability as a community to provide a strong, productive workforce. CSF has endorsed the District 11 mill levy override request, in what would be the first override in over 15 years for our largest school district. So if you live in D-11, please support this important initiative.
Thank you for your continued interest in Colorado Springs Forward. We continue to plan for 2018 and will have an update on our engagement with Pam Shockley-Zalabak in the next few weeks.
