Vote NO on 60, 61, 101

Dear Editor:

The Aspen Education Foundation is dedicated to ensuring our children receive a world-class education through our mission of supporting our public schools by raising funds from the community. I would be remiss as the executive director of this organization to not comment on the following three ballot initiatives – Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101.

These three initiatives put our public schools in jeopardy. The quality of education for our community’s children will be diminished. The district’s ability to reach every student will be decreased. The school board’s commitment to low student-teacher ratios will be threatened. The vision to educate the next generation of citizens who can solve our vast social, economic and cultural challenges will be undermined.

Many letters to the editor have reflected the negative fiscal impact that Amendments 60 and 61 and Prop 101 will have on all public schools in Colorado. I don’t need to belabor those points here. For those interested in more detail, visit:,,

At AEF we stand by our commitment to raise funds to support quality teaching and excellence in education. Please vote “no” on 60, 61 and 101.

Cindy Kahn

Executive director, Aspen Education Foundation
