A Voice of Colorado No. 24 Version 5.0:

Contrary to the subjective and questionable conclusion formulated by the consultant hired by The Thompson School District for $20,000 many voters clearly understood the specifics of two ballot issues, and voted as they did – rejecting the mill levy override and a property tax increase.

They were not and are not – as was implied by the now-defunct local newspaper – “ignorant”, ‘stupid’, ‘confused’, ‘misinformed’, or ‘ill-informed’.

Additionally, they refused to submit to the often explicit threats and vulgar comments that the Managing Editor of the newspaper allowed on the newspaper’s web site when they chose to express their opinion of the ballot issues.
