At today’s Administrative Matters meeting, the Larimer County Commissioners, all Republicans, joined a long list of legislators who have passed a resolution opposing Amendments 60, 61 and Proposition 101. Most, if not all cities and towns, special districts and civic organization in Larimer County have expressed their opposition to these ballot proposals. Only State Senator Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud has come out in favor of these proposals, showing that he is out of step with, not only his constituents, but his political party. At last weeks League of Women Voters political forum in Loveland, Lundberg said that these measures were necessary and urged everyone to read the proposals as if understanding them will cause people to favor them.
We must assume that the Larimer County Commissioners have done their homework and have had countless staff hours studying the effects of the proposals. They have read the proposals and obviously disagree with Lundberg.
The full text of the resolution follows and it is very detailed in its analysis of the effects on county government.Print This Post
