Please join us for our monthly Indivisible Boulder meeting. It will be in the Boulder Creek Room at the Boulder Public Library on Arapahoe. We will be meeting from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, June 22nd.We have secured our first speaker for this meeting and it will be Jason Legg with Strengthening Democracy Colorado. They are "...a 501 (c)4 non-profit dedicated to improving the representativeness and integrity of Colorado's government and its responsiveness to its citizens." Their current project is a state-wide ballot issue to require federal and state candidates to supply the last 5 years of tax returns to be eligible to be on a Colorado ballot. Here is an excerpt from Jason:
We're circulating petition sections to put mandatory tax return disclosure on the ballot. We need 140,000 signatures by mid-October for it to happen. That's a Herculean effort for people outside the billionaire class, but we can do it with a determined grassroots effort!
How? If 3,000 Coloradans just circulate 1 petition section with 50 signature blocks that's 150,000 signatures right there! We've had close to 500 commit already! Reach out to us to get a petition section and a training guide and help us make this happen!
Our second speaker will be Eric Budd. Eric is running for Boulder City Council, so we are pleased to allow him to speak to you all so you can learn more about him. In the meantime, you can read why he decided to run: Why I will run for Boulder City Council.
We look forward to see you all soon!
