Referendum C wins big in Highlands Ranch
I just finished an analysis of the precinct level vote counts for Referendum C in House District 43, which includes most of Highlands Ranch. HD43/Highlands Ranch voted for Ref C by a margin of 54% to 46%. So much for the Ranch's reputation as a conservative bastion. I have always known that Ranch residents were committed to good schools, quality healthcare, and a state infrastructure that provides a welcome environment for business and jobs.
I think it would be instructive for voters in HD43/Highlands Ranch to be reminded that their representative, Ted Harvey, was opposed to the measure. Warning: link goes to John Andrews' website.
Also, in 2004, voters in HD43/Highlands Ranch approved issues 4A and 4B, as well as Amendments 35 and 37, and they voted down Ref A. Ted Harvey was against all of the winning issues, and in favor of Ref A.
I would be interested in hearing comments from Mr. Harvey about why he is so out of touch with the voters in his district.
