Janice Sinden, Executive Director, Colorado Concern

In a rapidly changing global economy, it is essential that Colorado’s leaders have the tools to make sound and wise decisions.  Currently, just as flexibility is critical, so is the necessity to resolve three obstacles to change leadership:

•    Inconsistent – and contradictory – fiscal mandates
•    A weakening of representative government
•    An erosion of public trust in government

Constitutional Initiative Reform is the top priority for Colorado Concern. To that end, it is working as part of a coalition to pass a measure in 2012 to increase the standard for amending our state constitution from 50% to 60% voter approval. The aim is to provide the opportunity for public servants and citizens to work together for positive change on issues that transcend partisan politics, election cycles, narrow interests and short-term thinking.
