Letter: Vote no on “D”
As the song goes, “What a long, strange trip it’s been”. Indeed it has. It’s been five months since we started educating people about the proposed Rifle sales tax increase, and why they should vote NO. Alliances have been formed and new friends have been made. Mini-wars have occurred on social media and some true colors came out. It all boils down to freedom of speech, and the duty to vote here in this glorious country of ours.
When it comes to campaigning for No More TAXES, never has there been such a passionate, driven group. Thousands of fliers were handed out. Hundreds of envelopes were mailed and door to door conversations held. When we thought the volunteers are done, they asked for more.
As election day draws near, we would like to thank the following people: The Rifle City Council, Citizen Telegram, Grand Junction Daily Sentinel and Post Independent for allowing us to speak our minds, City Clerk Lisa Cain for helping us register our group, the numerous Facebook contributors including City Council candidate Dirk Myers, the two campaign behind the scene sounding boards, letters to the editor authors, the Garfield County Fair Board for the successful parade, the Rifle Police Department, Rifle City Finance Director Charles Kelty, the Rifle Chamber of Commerce, KMTS Radio, Cable Channel 10, the various surrounding area recreation center directors, the dozens of volunteers who tirelessly helped behind and in front of the scenes, and last, but not least, the hundreds of Rifle citizens for their support.
Ballots are going to be mailed out next week and are due back Sept. 10. Vote NO on D.
Until the next issue,
Rifle No More TAXES volunteer
