Election Guide 2013: Yes on Estes Park School District Issue 3A

0

Estes Park School District R-3 Ballot Issue 3A
Tax increase for education

Vote Yes

Ballot
Issue 3A asks voters to increase taxes — assuming Amendment 66, the
state ballot issue to increase state tax revenues, doesn’t pass — in
the school district to collect $750,000 annually to go to the general
fund for the district and be expended on educational purposes.

In
2011, Colorado spent $2,722 less per student than the national
average, according to the Colorado School Finance Project, and has
increased at a slower rate than the national average over the last 20
years.

In the interest of keeping up, we endorse a yes vote on this ballot issue.
