Your Vote Will Impact Future Generations of Coloradans
Former Colorado Chief Justice Michael Bender reminds voters of what it means to change the state’s constitution: “The constitution represents “Super Law,” setting forth fundamental values and rights that guide us and provide the framework for the operation of our state government. Legislated laws may not contradict the overriding principles expressed in the constitution. To solve problems facing Colorado, legislators must be nimble and responsive to the state’s immediate needs; but to change core values and principles stated in our constitution, change should come about only after a long, deliberative process with future generations foremost in our minds.”
