NO on 1B
Vote NO. We need stormwater mitigation, but not through a dishonest bill such as 1B.
Jeff, you are 100% right. Even the 20-year sunset is a sham. The life of the commission can be extended beyond 20 years by a vote. Not a vote of the people, but a vote of the Commissioners.

Vote NO on 1B- Storm water- it grows government, creating another government agency- it's called a fee, circumventing Tabor, which means it can be raised at any time without voter approval.
There also is broad opposition to this bill. Seems like the headlines might be biased towards the way the editorial board feels.
What are the voters' options to rescind their vote if the entire of "recommended project list [actual ballot language]" is not accomplished or is supplanted by different projects?
Mr. Mayor, Council President King, City Council Members, El Paso County Commissioners
I received a big, slick postcard promoting issue 1B. It did not help their case.
It said we should vote for a $40 million yearly tax because it would create 250 jobs. That average cost is $160,000 per job. Wow!
Regarding the storm water ballot question, this is my thinking. This problem didn’t begin with the 2012/2013 fires, though that certainly brought it out in the open.
Dave Munger and Brian Risley did not tell the whole story in The Gazette opinion piece published Oct. 12.
