Ballot Issues Forum September 24

All registered neighborhood organizations are encouraged to invite all of their, members to attend this forum about several important ballot issues for the November 6 election.
Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation, the League of Women Voters of Denver and Denver 8 TV will present a ballot issues forum on Monday September 24 at Montview Presbyterian Church (Fellowship Hall), 1980 Dahlia Street. Snacks will be available at 5:30pm and the program will begin at 6:00.
The first hour of the forum will present pro and con speakers about:
•      Denver Ballot Issue 2A – will allow the city to retain $68 million in taxes that would otherwise need to be refunded under the Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights and apply the funds to add new police recruits, replace many city vehicles and restore public library hours.
•      Denver Ballot Issues 3A and 3B – the Denver Public Schools $466 million bond issue and $49 million mill levy proposals.
Denver 8 TV will videotape the discussion and televise it several times before the election.
Following a short intermission, League members will present the pros and cons of the state ballot measure to legalize a small amount of marijuana, a proposed federal constitutional amendment to limit campaign contributions and changes to the state personnel system.
This forum is free and open to the public. For further information, contact the League of Women Voters at 303-321-7571, send an email to [email protected] , or visit the web site at .
