Amendment 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 for Colorado

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Selley Group Real Estate, LLC

Gordon and I really enjoy watching CBS Sunday Morning, especially the segment, “The Fast Draw,” in which Mitch Butler and Josh Landis have a very unique way of communicating our cultural issues through some very creative drawing (cartoonish) techniques. It’s similar to the way UPS advertises their commercials through their thought-provoking artist, who sketches and erases his drawings to more easily communicate their commercial message.

Well…I ran across this Youtube segment entitled, “The Bad Three: In Plain English,” which is about Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 for Colorado. The Bell Policy Center and ProgressNow Colorado joined forces to help explain the inner meanings of these very important issues to be voted upon. And they have explained these amendments similarly as seen with the “The Fast Draw,” making something complicated into something more easily understandable.

For those who are voting in this next election in Colorado, enjoy learning about Amendment 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 before you cast your vote…

Hi Cherise and Gordon,  I liked the YouTube Video, I haven't seen anything regarding the "other side" but I know things that sounded good at the time - ie: TABOR usually come back to bite us in the behind and then require other amendments to fix them.  Thanks for the info, I will be glad when the negative ads are off the air and this voting season is over.

Mary,

We feel very similarly.  It's hard to believe anything anymore from our politicians... g

Ron & Alexandra,

No doubt.  Keep it simple stupid seems to hold up over time for most of us.  However, the way these videos are done are nothing but creative genius... g

Fascinating. I know nothing about the political battles in Colorado. However, the mantra of lowering taxes seems quite popular and to have the video explain how that can be a problem was quite educational. Here is to a better life in Colorado.

Cherise & Gordon, I agree with Ron & Alexandra – a great message – simple and easy to follow and understand. You are so smart to leverage social media and spread the message. Lets’ pray for a position outcome on the upcoming Colorado election.
