State Senator organizes meeting to advance school-funding efforts
Special town hall will focus on ‘Great Schools, Thriving Communities’ ballot petition drive
ARVADA, Colorado – Colorado State Senator Rachel Zenzinger will hold a special edition of her Town Hall series with a meeting on Saturday, March 10 to acquaint people with the efforts to improve the state’s school funding formula.
The “Great Schools, Thriving Communities” Meeting and Petition Drive at Covenant Village in Westminster, 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., will allow voters to learn about the school-funding ballot initiative and will provide an opportunity for voters to put their names on the official ballot petition.
The campaign is sponsored by a coalition of diverse and inclusive education-connected organizations, and they hope to collect enough citizen signatures to allow their initiative to gain a spot on the 2018 ballot.
We anticipate that Lisa Weil of Great Ed Colorado, Mapleton Superintendent Charlotte Ciancio, and other representatives will be on hand at the Special Edition Town Hall to help explain how the proposed funding formula would increase resources for our students and improve our public schools.
The meeting is free and open to the public. We will set aside time for audience members to ask questions and make comments. The address is 9153 Yarrow St., Westminster, Colo. 80021.
