Most of you have or will very soon receive your mail in ballot for the November election. Two measures will affect those of us not in the big city, financially.

Ballot Issue No 1A is a county-wide measure to raise over $10 million dollars a year for thirty years for the purpose of designing, acquiring, constructing, renovating, equipping, and providing capital maintenance, to the Pueblo County detention center and treatment center, and for related expenditures.

The money is raised by a county sales tax increase of nine-twentieth's of one cent per dollar (0.45%). At issue is a current jail population far in excess of the legal capacity, an aging infrastructure, a need for treatment for a continually increasing addict population and the safety and security of the men and women who work in the jail system.
