Goal Is to Bring More Representative Government to Jefferson County
The campaign to change our county government from three commissioners elected county-wide to five commissioners elected by district gets underway this month. Since the county commissioners have refused to put the question on the 2014 ballot, it is necessary to gather petition signatures toward that end.
The petitioning process is scheduled to begin Jan 10th. The next public meeting of “Jeffco5 Grassroots” will be on Saturday January 4th, 10 AM at the Belmar Library. Those willing to help with the petition drive, please send your name and neighborhood to Bernie at: email@example.com.
Think of places in your neighborhood — library, post office, grocery stores — where you could fill a 25-name petition sheet. See the group’s website, www.Jeffco5.com, for information and/or to donate, or send a check to Jeffco5Grassroots, c/o Karen Oxman, 640 11th St, #401, Golden 80401.
We at Golden Real Estate support this effort to bring a more representative form of government to Jefferson County and have volunteered our office at 17695 S. Golden Road as a place where petition forms can be picked up and returned.
