Election: What do you think?

Filed under: Daily News |

The Colorado Springs Business Journal would like to hear your thoughts on the election outcomes, specifically about:

  • El Paso County Question 1A, increased taxes for the Sheriff’s department;
  • the extension of the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority tax;
  • and how the approval of Amendment 64, legalization of recreational marijuana might affect business.

Leave a comment below.

  2. The Public Safety tax is a value added to our community. It was done correctly with an appeal to the voters who approved it. Plus it has an expiration date.

    Marijuana is a slippery slope that will give us the nationwide reputation of pot haven and attract pot heads from all over. Not an attractive perspective for companies that want to locate in a business and family friendly environment. Add to that the significant number of sensitive jobs in the military and restricted access positions that will never tolerate even recreational use. Another California funded idea that is the wrong direction for Colorado.

  3. Its legal for 21 and over to drink. But you can have your license yanked and go to jail for DUI. That will happen if this law stands….and more.

    The other shoe that is waiting to drop are the insurance rates for 20 and 30-somethngs. This group will now get boomeranged by what they themselves threw when they cast their votes.

    And in Denver and Boulder–hello ! ! ! Can you say : $3,000 per year to insure a 20-something ???

    Sure ‘ya can !! Yes….be careful what you vote for—you might just get it—in ways you should have foreseen.
