Lefthand Fire Protection District Ballot Issue 5A
General tax increase

Vote Yes

If you don’t vote yes on this, you’re a global warming denier.

OK,
so it’s not that simple. But broadly speaking, climate scientists
agree that man-made climate change is affecting weather and leading to
more extreme weather patterns. And given Colorado’s recent issues with
wildfires, it’s obvious it could happen here.

Lefthand
Fire Protection District is a primarily rural, hilly and mountainous
district that serves about 2,000 residents, its website says. But the
impact of more funding for the district would be valuable for a lot more
than just 2,000 people.
