SpringsTaxpayers.com, organized as a 501(c)(4), announced today the launch of a citizen-led campaign focused on educating voters about the issues on the Colorado Springs and El Paso County ballots this November.
If passed, City Question 2A will charge every residential property $5 per month, and $30 per acre per month for non-residential properties. Those with undeveloped land would not incur the new fee. This money would be dedicated to stormwater repairs.
If passed, El Paso County Issue 1A would retain over $14 million in overages, under the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. If it does not pass, the overage will be returned to the taxpayers.
“Both the City and County governments have record revenues,” said Colorado resident and SpringsTaxpayers.com founder Laura Carno. “Politicians need to remember that every dollar they spend is a dollar you and I earned.”
Visitors to SpringsTaxpayers.com can donate to the upcoming ad campaign and read media accounts that further educate voters on the ballot issues.
