Ballot Issue

June is almost here and it’s time for the monthly Reagan Club get-together. On Thursday, June 1st, we will be hearing from Greg Brophy, who will provide insight on Amendment 71 and other current issues.

Senator Brophy was a leading force in the passage of Amendment 71, also known as the ‘Raise the Bar’ amendment, which has made it more challenging for the initiative process to produce changes to our state’s Constitution. Amendment proposals now require signatures of support from Senatorial Districts statewide, eliminating the ability of the more populous areas to dictate Constitutional changes without having statewide support. Amendment 71 had a broad base of supporters from all political parties and is a fair and common sense amendment.

The June 1st meeting will be held at Amazing Grace Church at 541 E 99th Pl. Thornton, CO. Doors open at 6:00PM-meetings usually end at 8:30PM.

Wear your Reagan buttons and be ready to win more Reagan bucks in our ongoing contest!

There is still time to get early bird tickets for $15 before Tuesday, May 30th. Early registration is encouraged, and you can get an additional ten Reagan Bucks by registering early!

More than 160 ballot measures going before voters this year
’Legalize it’: On Election Day, voters in different states get a say on recreational marijuana; hiking the minimum wage; and more.
On Nov. 8, Americans won’t just get their say on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: voters will weigh in on a slew of ballot measures concerning everything from the minimum wage to marijuana.

More than 160 statewide ballot measures are certified to go before voters this year in 35 states, according to Ballotpedia. While that’s down from some past years, the issues remain the kinds that stir voters up. Here’s a look at some hot-button measures facing Americans around the country on Election Day.

Minimum wage: There are measures to boost the minimum wage on the ballot in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and Washington. And in a referendum that may prove to be the bane of South Dakota teenagers, voters in that state will decide whether the minimum wage should drop by $1 an hour for workers under the age of 18.

Please join Americans for Prosperity and Walker Stapleton, Colorado State Treasurer, for breakfast at the Americans for Prosperity North Jeffco/Adams County office on Saturday, October 22nd, at 9:00 a.m. The event will be held at 9101 Harlan, Suite 225, Westminster, Colorado. To register – go to

After the breakfast we will be knocking on doors to the general public regarding the defeat of Amendment 69 and “get out the vote”. If you are interested in participating please contact, Shari Shiffer-Krieger, Field Director Adams County at or via text or phone at 720-388-0969, so we can get you signed up.

Looking forward to you joining us!


Coloradans will begin voting by mail not very many days from now, and the election will be final in barely a month.
Amidst all the focus on top-line races such as Trump for President, Glenn for Senate, and Coffman for Congress, we also have some important ballot issues to decide, and several are among the worst I’ve ever seen in 45 years of politics.
My ballot issue voter guide is online at, and I hope you will subscribe for updates while you’re there.
Briefly, we need to defeat Amendment 69 and prevent socialized medicine from being forced on our state… defeat Amendment 71 and save the people’s right to revise our own constitution… and defeat Proposition 106 to protect the vulnerable and keep doctors in the business of saving lives, not taking them.
In fact, after studying the issues carefully, I’m convinced all nine statewide ballot issues deserve defeat. I’m voting a “straight ticket No.”
Again, check out the complete voter guide at BackboneAmerica, tell your family and friends, and enter your name for future blog posts.
Also check out my new series with daily Bible questions, and let me know what you think.
Yours for self-government,
