Let’s Go, Colorado Certified for November Ballot

Proposition 110 Dedicates Sales Tax to Roads, Bridges & Multimodal Projects To Address Congestion, Safety

The statewide coalition Let’s Go, Colorado announced on August 24th that its proposed comprehensive, bipartisan transportation funding solution was certified for the November General Election ballot by the Colorado Secretary of State as Proposition 110. 

“Coloradans deserve a solution to our growing transportation crisis that is guaranteed to generate the revenue to address long-neglected projects in every corner of our state,” said Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet, a Republican. “Proposition 110 is the only measure on this year’s ballot that can fund the transportation safety, capacity and mobility improvements that our citizens and businesses are demanding. Plus, it empowers local communities to tackle our toughest transportation challenges. Proposition 110 is the answer Colorado needs.”

“The Western Slope has been promised transportation solutions for many years, but the reality is that the state funds aren’t there – and won’t be there without the common-sense solution that Proposition 110 offers,” said Christian Reece, Executive Director of Club 20, a non-partisan advocacy coalition for Western Colorado. “We can’t tie our economic future to more promises or proposals driven by narrow ideology.  We need a solution that truly addresses transportation problems that have lingered for years, and that requires new, dedicated revenue. It’s basic math and basic common sense. Club 20 strongly supports Proposition 110.
