Great Futures Open Letter to Voters


In March of this year, the Great Futures Colorado coalition proposed DECIDE, a referred measure to give voters the chance to prevent deep and irreversible cuts to schools, colleges and universities.   Although we flooded the Capitol with tens of thousands of emails and phone calls and committed hundreds of hours to attending and testifying at committee hearings, the legislature failed to place DECIDE on the November 2010 ballot.

Now we know it’s up to us.

Join us and add your name to the open letter to the voters of Colorado committing to a ballot measure in 2011 to reverse Colorado’s ongoing education funding crisis.  We sent out the Letter in conjunction with a new report detailing the negative impact of statewide budget cuts on Colorado’s students to media outlets across the state, after every school district made final budget balancing decisions for the 2010-11 school year.
