Supporters of the ballot measure to increase investment in Colorado’s public education system this week turned in more than 160,000 signatures of Colorado voters—nearly double the number needed to send a finance measure to the ballot this November.  The Colorado Commits to Kids Campaign delivered the signatures to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to be verified within the next 30 days.


Please join Children’s Campaign staff and other supporters at the official ballot campaign launch at 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15 at Green Mountain High School, 13175 W. Green Mountain Dr. Lakewood, CO 80228. Gov. John Hickenlooper, teachers, students and other education advocates are scheduled to speak about the importance of this measure to our schools and kids.

Visit the campaign’s website to learn more about the ballot measure and get involved. You can also follow and participate in the campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
