ACTION ALERT! - VOTE NO! ON 47, 49, and 54!




It's that time again. Time to VOTE! Don't forget to vote NO! on amendments 47, 49, and 54! Here is a letter from our friends at Protect Colorado's Future explaining what these amendments will do and steps you can take to help in the struggle to protect the working people of Colorado.

Dear Friends,
Protect Colorado’s Future is a non-profit organization focused on the issues that matter to families in our state, like creating good paying jobs and increasing access to affordable health care. We are made up of Colorado local businesses, unions, progressive groups, faith based organizations and community allies who are working together to stop out-of-state corporate interests from playing political games with our state and put the focus back on the serious issues facing Coloradans.

Protect Colorado’s Future is working to oppose three deceptive amendments - 47, 49 and 54 – that will be on the ballot this November. These ballot measures would make it harder for firefighters, nurses, teachers and police officers to advocate for changes that would keep them – and us – safe.

Vote No on Amendment 47 which would limit the ability of our firefighters, nurses, teachers and police officers to advocate for changes that keep them – and us- safe. This measure is so extreme that leaders in the business community, such as the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Golden Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Colorado Bankers Association are all joining working Coloradans to oppose it!

Vote No on Amendment 49 which would limit the way firefighters, nurses, teachers and police officers can choose to spend their hard-earned paychecks. Public servants should not have fewer rights than private sector employees. A similar proposal has been rejected by California, Oregon, and Nevada voters on multiple occasions.

Vote No on Amendment 54 unfairly silences any person, or family member, of anyone who works on a government contract from contributing to a candidate and/or advocating for an issue at any level – while creating big loopholes for drug, oil and energy companies.

Help us to stop the out-of-state special interests and their divisive amendments so that Coloradans can focus on the issues that matter.

You can help by:

Going door to door to speak with voters
Phonebanking
Writing a letter to the editor
Endorsing Protect Colorado’s Future and our opposition to these three Amendments
Emailing friends, family and contacts
Organizing a house party
Volunteering at events

If you agree that it's time to focus on the real issues facing Colorado, please contact Allison Halprin Denver Metro Organizer at 303-241-0557 or check out our website, www.protectcoloradosfuture.org for more information.


Please help the working families of Colorado by VOTING NO ON THESE DANGEROUS AMENDMENTS! If passed, they will be near impossible to get rid of.
