We all know most of our elected representatives put their vote up for sale, but what about us, the Colorado voters? I hope not. We'll find out on Nov. 6 when we vote on Proposition 112, the safer setbacks initiative.
Prospects are looking good. The proposition is polling at 69%. That's what the people think. Who cares what gubernatorial candidates Walker Stapleton and Jared Polis think? They get two votes, that's all.
Don't let Proposition 112's early lead keep you from voting on it. Remember 2016 when the polls said Hillary Clinton would win easily and the Clinton supporters stayed away from the voting booths.
We with Colorado Rising and 350 Colorado, sponsors of the proposition, know we're up against big money. We can't afford television commercials, full-page ads in newspapers and online advertising.
All we can fight back with is letters to the editor, phone calls, and canvassing.
The truth about money is expressed when it's said money is the root of all evil, it corrupts, and it can't buy happiness. The lies are told when they say it talks, it's a gas, it makes the world go round and it's the one thing that counts.
Are you gonna let money influence you vote in November? Let big money know health and safety come before their stinking money and vote yes on Proposition 112.
