As I have pointed out now for years, the insiders clique running Arvada city government has never met a tax hike it didn't want you to pay.
From the Arvada Press (July 25, 2012):
Arvada City Council unanimously voted July 19 to endorse a $99 million bond and $39 million mill levy that would both benefit Jeffco Public Schools. ...
Arvada City Council voted without discussion at the July 19 meeting to pass the resolution supporting the issues.
Now is not the time to shovel more money into a school system that continues to fail in its primary function -- No More Money for Schools Until There is Change!
