Citizens’ Budget from the Independence Institute in Colorado Springs Thursday Evening
Join me at the Coalition for a Conservative Majority August Meeting
for one of many Independence Institute mini-seminars
designed to promote the Citizens’ Budget, a
“Road Map for Sustainable Government in Colorado.”
“Nearly every Colorado citizen has been affected by the downturn in the economy and its current slow recovery. Governments at all levels also have had to adjust. Programs cannot continue to expand. Is the only answer to raid family savings accounts and businesses’ incomes with new taxes and fees? If so, what will that do to the desirability of living and working in Colorado? Will we be able to provide an improved standard of living for Colorado’s residents?” (from Citizens’ Budget)
Penn Pfiffner, Senior Fellow at the Independence Institute, will answer these questions and more. He will discuss how Coloradans like you can understand and influence the government process and spending habits at the state level. Mr. Pfiffner will remain after his presentation for an ad-hoc discussion to discuss implementation with anyone who is interested in assisting with the Citizens’ Budget.
