Please Consider a "YES" on Amendment 73

Dear Citizens of Chaffee County,

I am writing to encourage your support of Amendment 73- Great Schools, Thriving Communities in the upcoming election.  Colorado has maintained a deficit in education funding and this is an opportunity to begin to bridge the gap.

This initiative will fund expanded opportunities for our districts through tax increments on taxable income above $150,000 and on C Corporations. It is my understanding that 92% of all Colorado tax filers would see no change in their income tax and our business owners, ranchers and farmers would see a drop in their commercial property tax rates from 29% to 24%.

Decisions about funding allocation will be made at the local level.  If you have concerns, I urge you to please do your research and then consider your support as this is an emergent opportunity that can really make a difference locally and statewide.  

Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Jennifer Visitacion Salida, CO
