Congratulations

The Highlands Ranch/Lone Tree/Roxborough Democrats provide a forum for residents of Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Roxborough Village and Roxborough Park to get together to socialize with like minded people, participate in projects, and become involved in legislation and candidates that further the needs of their communities.

Preserving Funding for Public Education

The next meeting of the Highlands Ranch/Lone Tree/Roxborough Democrats is 7:00 pm, Wednesday, March 16th, at the Highlands Ranch Library.  Our topic for the month is “Preserving Funding for Public Education”.

As many know, Governor Hickenlooper has proposed a $332 million cut in K-12 funding for the coming state budget year:  http://www.denverpost.com/legislature/ci_17398478?IADID=Search-www.denverpost.com-www.denverpost.com

Meanwhile, a local effort is attempting to siphon public money from Douglas County schools toward private schools:  http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_17457031?IADID=Search-www.denverpost.com-www.denverpost.com

And Republican State Senator Spencer Swalm of Centennial has sponsored a bill that would provide tax credits for parents whose children attend private schools, thereby reducing moneys for public schools even further: http://www.denverpost.com/search/ci_17535855

It’s time to fight for our public schools!

Our confirmed guest speaker is Colorado State Senator Evie Hudak (D-Arvada/Westminster).  Senator Hudak, a strong proponent of public education, is a former member of the Colorado Board of Education and currently Vice-Chair of the Colorado Senate’s Education Committee.  Senator Hudak will be speaking about preserving funding for public schools.  Due to a earlier meeting in her Senate District that same evening, Senator Hudak will be speaking at 8:00 pm (Senator Hudak’s website:  http://www.eviehudak.com/node/32 ).

Come and learn what you can do to help preserve funding for public education in Colorado!
