Summit Prevention Alliance urges votes to support family

SPA Board and Staff

The Summit Prevention Alliance was formed to assist the residents in Summit County in selecting healthy life choices. Consistent with the mission, vision and by-laws, SPA opposes Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101. These measures to be voted on could have a tremendous impact on services provided to all residents within Summit County and the State of Colorado. Should 60, 61, and 101 pass, we will be missing basic funding we now have to repair and improve our roads and bridges, water projects, utilities, basic health care, prisons and other basic services residents expect.

SPA supports Summit County mill levy question 3B. The defeat of 3B would further erode the school district’s ability to teach the youth, our future. Aside from the $1.4 million already cut from our school district by the state, we would face even more cuts in the classroom, teaching staff, programming, materials, extra-curricular activities, arts and sports – programs critical to the successful, healthy development of our youth.

Additional severe cuts made in already difficult times will make it very difficult to choose what funding and programs to eliminate or scale back. These choices will impact families already struggling with their daily lives. Please join the Summit Prevention Alliance in opposing Amendments 60 and 61, and Proposition 101, and supporting 3B to keep a healthy and vibrant Summit County community.
