Grassroots group launches TV & Radio Ads Encouraging Coloradans to Vote ‘No’ on Prop CC
DENVER, Colo. – Americans for Prosperity-Colorado Issue Committee on Thursday announced a new TV and radio ad buy to supplement its grassroots efforts urging Coloradans to vote “NO” on Proposition CC. Proposition CC would weaken the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR), giving politicians power to take more of Coloradans’ money.
The ads underscore how TABOR protects Colorado families and their tax dollars from being funneled into politicians’ wasteful pet projects. The ads start on Friday and will run in key areas of the state through November 5th.
AFP-CO Issue Committee State Director Jesse Mallory issued the following statement:
“Proposition CC comes with zero guarantees and weakens our Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights – the one safeguard Colorado taxpayers have against politicians eager to use our money for their own pet projects. Politicians have a long history of breaking their promises in Colorado when it comes to spending hard-earned tax dollars. We encourage all Coloradans to vote ‘NO’ on Proposition CC this November.”
TV AD SCRIPT:
In 2005, politicians promised to increase spending on education with Referendum C.
But behind closed doors they instead fed the money into their pet projects.
Now, they’re at it again, pushing Proposition CC, promising increasing spending on our schools and roads.
But there is no guarantee.
So where will the money actually go?
Likely to feed more pet projects.
Just say no to Pet Projects and Wasteful Spending.
Vote No on Proposition CC.
RADIO AD SCRIPT:
The Taxpayers Bill of Rights keeps more money in your pocket.
Helps with my family budget.
Helps me pay the bills.
Unfortunately, some think Denver’s budget is more important than yours.
And there’s no guarantee where our money will be spent.
It’s a blank check.
We tried this before…promises were broken.
Colorado, don’t get fooled again.
Vote NO on proposition CC.
