Letvot­er­sre­solveTABOR/ Gal­lagher con­flict

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Dave Usechek,

Com­mon sense tells you there is con­flict be­tween the Tax­payer’s Bill of Rights and Gal­lagher. It was a voter de­mand to take away politi­cians from in­creas­ing our taxes with­out voter ap­proval. Re­cently it has been sug­gested that the is­sue be solved through ei­ther the courts or po­lit­i­cal in­flu­ence.

Since vot­ers have spo­ken, I find it dis­taste­ful to let a se­lect few change what vot­ers de­manded. Would not com­mon sense be for th­ese pow­ers to come up with pos­si­ble so­lu­tions and then let vot­ers de­cide which di­rec­tion should be taken in re­solv­ing this is­sue that im­pacts not only tax­ing dis­tricts but voter’s pock­ets? Don’t let a se­lect few change our fu­ture.
