October 4, 2011The Honorable John Hickenlooper The Honorable Brandon Shaffer Governor of Colorado President of the Colorado Senate200 East Colfax Avenue, Room 136 200 East Colfax AvenueDenver, CO 80203 Denver, CO 80230The Honorable Sal PaceMinority Leader of the Colorado House of Representatives200 E Colfax AvenueDenver, CO 80203Dear Governor Hickenlooper, President Shaffer and Minority Leader Pace:We are writing to ask you to join us in opposing Proposition 103, the ballot measure that wouldraise personal and corporate income taxes and the state sales tax by almost $3 billion over thenext five years. We believe Colorado’s elected leaders must provide a united front in standingagainst policies such as Proposition 103 that will harm Colorado’s economic recovery.Political leaders in Washington, D.C. have spent the better part of the year quarreling about howto break the grip of a staggering unemployment crisis. As Washington bickers, we candemonstrate broad bipartisanship around a critical organizing principle – that the unemploymentcrisis is the wrong time for statewide income tax and sales tax increases.While the voters will ultimately decide the fate of Proposition 103, those same voters have anunmistakable right to know whether the elected leaders they have entrusted with the reins of  power believe this ballot measure is the right economic prescription for the state. Weunanimously believe that Proposition 103 is not.
 
 While there has been considerable speculation about whether the proposed recessionary tax hikewill result in 30,000 lost jobs or 119,000 lost jobs, what is clear is that the state should notendorse any policy that will beat back a jobs recovery on any level or in any number.
We ask you to join us in a strong bipartisan stand against Proposition 103, a measure that will harm our state’s economic recovery.
Tough times like these represent the moment when political leadership is at its highest premium.Voters deserve leadership on an issue as weighty as Proposition 103.Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you on whether you willstand with us in opposing this ill-conceived tax hike that will hinder Colorado’s economicrecovery.Sincerely,Rep. Frank McNulty Sen.
