Vail Daily letter: ‘Yes’ on Amendment 66

Vote “yes” on Nov. 5 for Amendment 66.

Ballots have now been mailed to registered voters. By Oct. 21, you should have received your ballot.

Those of you who the spend time in the classroom weekly to help out teachers, sit on numerous committees to help our schools and participate in countless fundraisers, will mark the box yes because you are experiencing what is happening in our schools firsthand.

Our education system has been broken for decades along with many other systems in this country. No political party has tempted to fix the problem. We can’t sit and watch our children suffer because education is not on top of the priority list of the powers to be.

Nov. 5, Election Day, is your chance to change what is happening in your state, Colorado.

Please educate yourself about Amendment 66. Take the time to understand how this amendment has a framework in place for the accountability and transparency for the minimal increase of tax that is being asked from already educated voters. Go to the websites www.coloradocommits.com and “Understanding SB 213” at http://www.cde.state.co.us/sites/default/files/Understanding%20SB%2013-213%20-%20FINAL.pdf and get more information, or call me and let’s have coffee.

Advocate for my children’s education,

Mary Blair
