DENVER, Colo. – Americans for Prosperity-Colorado (AFP-CO) released a statement Wednesday after Colorado Springs voters overwhelmingly voted against Issue # 1. AFP-CO formed an issue committee and actively opposed Issue #1 with multiple mailers, digital ads, phone calls, and door-to-door canvassing to rally voters of Colorado Springs against the ballot measure.
AFP-CO State Director Jesse Mallory released the following statement:
“We commend Colorado Springs voters for opposing a ballot measure that would have forced workers into contracts negotiated solely by city and union officials. People should be free to join unions and other organizations that advocate on their behalf, but forcing unwilling workers to be solely represented by a union is wrong. Residents are right to demand a government that is directly accountable to both them and our first responders. We can now turn off the sirens on this issue for good and continue supporting the first responders we all know and love.”
