Please Vote "Yes" on 1A This November

A special message from Bobbie Watson, Executive Director, The Early Childhood Council of Boulder County:

The County Commissioners have put a ballot measure on this fall called Worthy Cause IV, an extension of a 0.05% countywide sales and use tax which was first passed by Boulder County voters in 2000. These funds are used to provide non-profit safety net providers with funds for ‘bricks and mortar’-that is to either buy new buildings and/or expand/renovate existing buildings. I know that many of you are aware of programs who have benefited from these funds including: 

  • The OUR Center
  • The Boulder Valley Women’s Health Center
  • The Homeless Shelter
  • The Wild Plum Center in Longmont
  • Clinic Campesina
  • The Boulder Safehouse
  • EFAA, and many others.  

There con tinues to be increasing demands on all of our safety net providers. You may recall the Neighbors Helping Neighbors campaign in 2014 which passed with broad approval. Those funds go to support safety net program costs like salaries, program materials, etc. But our non-profit partners also need have up-to-date facilities in which to provide their programs.

That is why I am urging you to support Worthy Cause IV. The Early Childhood Council of Boulder County Board has endorsed this ballot measure. This extension would go until Dec 31, 2033, and revenues would be used in the following manner:

I urge you to continue to support your neighbors in Boulder County. Please vote YES on ballot measure 1A.
