EDWARDS, Colorado – In a conference-call meeting held Wednesday, the Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees voted to pass a resolution in opposition to three measures appearing on the November statewide ballot.The resolution states that Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 would significantly damage Colorado’s state and local governments from funding their most basic level of services related to safety, education and transportation.The board joins other educational and governmental entities that have passed resolutions against or otherwise expressed concerns over the proposed measures, including the State Board for Community College and Occupational Education (which oversees the 13-member Colorado Community College System), Club 20 and the Colorado Center on Law & Policy.”The cumulative and destructive nature of the three measures ensures that Colorado will surrender its competitive standing to attract employers, significantly hampering economic growth for the state,” the trustees said in their resolution.
