Living in Boulder County is a wonderful experience, having the benefits of a beautiful environment, hiking and biking trails and access to the best ski and snow board slopes in the country.
However, when a family requires assistance services due to a parent’s illness, child’s learning disability or a loss in income (to name only some of the issues) Boulder County is a magnificent place. Boulder County is home to not for profit organizations like Imagine! which has provided services to those with special needs for almost half a century and the Family Learning Center serving the community of San Juan Del Centro (to name just a few organizations). These organizations benefit individuals and families in need and allows for “all boats to rise with the tide”, not just a few, or the privileged.
Quite frankly, the present economic environment in the Unities States is not conducive to continued investment in human services programs for the long term.
Ballot 1 A will provide a stop gap payment period while the federal and state governments contend with the worst fiscal crisis in over 70 years.
Ballot 1 A will allow a small portion of property tax revenues to benefit those families and the organizations that provide for those families, to continue to receive and provide funding of supportive services, during what is considered extremely challenging times.
I ask you to please join me in supporting Boulder County Ballot Initiative 1 A.
