    On Tuesday, June 25 at 5:30PM the RTD Board is meeting to consider a ballot measure to “retain” tax revenues — that is, to keep your TABOR refunds. Permanently. 

    “One potential strategy to ensure the agency’s financial sustainability is a ballot measure that would continue the authorization originally approved by voters in 1999 for RTD to retain sales and use tax and other revenues (ballot measure) without imposing a new tax or increasing the tax rate.”

    As reported by Free State Colorado last week, the RTD Director makes $375,000 per year. Also, the RTD Board hatched this TABOR plan during a retreat in March, according to the meeting summary.  

    While RTD leadership rakes in cash and explores constitutional violations during retreats, the trains have been delayed, the track infrastructure is crumbling, and RTD is widely considered unsafe. The Denver Post reported earlier this month that "RTD drivers also are assaulted regularly — more than 100 times a year on average since 2019..."

    Nonetheless, these high rollers established, during their retreat, a “policy goal to shore up RTD’s financial position and outlook with a policy goal to create a long-term, sustainable, and resilient funding model.”

    Perhaps cancel the retreats and slash your salaries by 75%, and voters might take you seriously about “fiscal responsibility.”
