Commissioners take positions on local and statewide 2020 ballot measures

Descriptions of the local and state measures as well as additional commissioners' comments are provided in a memo approved today at a BOCC business meeting.

From the Board of County Commissioners

Based on input from our policy team -- in addition to our own deliberations on each of the ballot issues considered -- we have taken positions on two local and nine statewide ballot measures that county voters will see on the ballot during the 2020 election cycle.

Our positions on the ballot issues reflect the public policy goals and priorities identified to us as important to the residents of Boulder County.

There are many questions on local and statewide ballots this year that are critical to the future health and well-being of our community. Some of them might not get the attention they should due to higher-profile campaigns for office. Even so, they deserve careful consideration from Boulder County voters, as the outcome of these votes will impact our community for years to come.

--Deb Gardner, Chair, Board of County Commissioners
