Dear Friends and Neighbors,
This Saturday, you are all invited to join Rep. Joann Ginal, Senator John Kefalas and me for a Community Issues Forum at Old Town Library on Saturday, February 25th from 10am-11:30am. We will be joined by two experts for a discussion on TABOR, the Gallagher Amendment, and school finance. These are complicated issues. To help prepare for the forum watch the videos below made by the Colorado Fiscal Institute. Please join us! 
"Here's why the inflation-plus-population formula in TABOR doesn't work."

"What is the Gallagher Amendment? How does it interact with TABOR? Why are school districts and local fire districts facing cuts in a booming economy?"
