Read the Blue Book

by Osman Parvez

I try to steer clear of political opinion on the blog, but irrespective of where you stand on the issues or candidates, one thing I feel strongly about is voting. Colorado is a great place to live and contribute. Understanding the issues and voting accordingly will keep it that way.

If you're planning to vote, be sure to read Colorado's Blue Book for 2006 (PDF). The Blue Book includes a list of arguements for and against a specific proposal and an analysis of financial impact. There's even an audio version.

Another resource to check out is the Daily Camera's Voter Guide 2006. It includes profiles of candidates and details about local ballot issues.

Local Ballot Issues in Boulder:
201: Fire Training Center
202: Climate Action Plan Tax
2A: Annexation by Vote
2B: Drinking Water Standards

Boulder County Issues:
1A: Transit and Trails Tax
3A: BVSD Bond Issue

p.s. Lafayette is voting on growth issues. Broomfield has an open space issue.
