Today, the Denver Post again endorsed with the headline: “Yes on 4B: SCFD tax provides art and science for all.” The editorial pointed out:
Voters in seven Denver-area counties have the unique opportunity on Nov. 8 to protect what has already been fostered for 28 years through the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.The district has been approved by voters on three occasions, providing substantial majorities each time. The Denver Post editorial ended with:
…this one is so well administered, so modest in amount and so responsive to change that it is a clear benefit to all seven counties and we hope voters say “yes.”The SCFD renewal will be Ballot Issue 4B, located near the end of the long 2016 Colorado ballot. It will read:
DENVER METROPOLITAN SCIENTIFIC CULTURAL FACILITIES DISTRICT (SCFD) BALLOT ISSUE 4B:
SHALL THERE BE AN EXTENSION UNTIL JUNE 30, 2030, OF THE AGGREGATE 0.1 PERCENT SALES AND USE TAXES CURRENTLY LEVIED AND COLLECTED BY THE DENVER METROPOLITAN SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL FACILITIES DISTRICT THAT ARE SCHEDULED TO EXPIRE ON JUNE 30, 2018, FOR ASSISTING SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL FACILITIES WITHIN THE DISTRICT…
Please vote to renew the SCFD and keep Colorado’s acclaimed program of culture for all in place for another 12 years.
