This is a nonpartisan, statewide outreach effort to engage Coloradans, in person and online, to address the structural challenges to our state government and find solutions to build a better Colorado.
Who are we?
A diverse and nonpartisan coalition of Coloradans from across the state, including representatives of the business and non-profit communities, as well as current and former elected officials, with the shared belief that:
Colorado can be better.
The path to a better Colorado lies in engaging the citizens in a statewide discussion of the challenges our state government faces and possible solutions to those challenges.
What do we hope to accomplish?
We hope to make Colorado better by engaging citizens statewide in a conversation which may reveal consensus ideas which we can then work together to implement.
What issues, specifically, are we looking at?
“Good government" solutions in the following statewide policy areas:
We are not advocating for any particular policy solution, but instead intend to engage Coloradans in identifying ideas that can move our state forward, and discussing the associated merits -- both pro and con.
Are we promising to take something to the ballot in 2016?
We are focused on research and providing the forum for consensus building. We intend to support implementation of the consensus ideas that come from this process.
How did we come up with the issues we’ve selected?
These issues have been talked about for years by various groups across the state as areas in which citizens feel disconnected from their government. We convened bipartisan panels of policy experts earlier this year to review them and suggest various policy alternatives and the pros and cons for each.
Are we open to examining other ideas?
Yes. At this point, we’re focusing this conversation on how to improve the governance of our state, but we’ll be watching to see if there are other consensus recommendations that come forth from the statewide conversation which we’re hosting.
