Senator Pete Lee, representing Senate District 11, should be recalled because he sponsored legislation to create a paid family and medical leave program to be funded by a mandatory tax on businesses and employees, disingenuously referring to it as a “fee” instead of a tax, and he voted for the passage of:Here's what Democracy First Colorado had to say in a release:
1) SB 19-042 (National Popular Vote), enacting and joining Colorado into an interstate compact to elect the president of the United States by national popular vote;
2) SB 19-181 (Comprehensive Oil and Gas Reform), reforming the regulation of the oil and gas industry in Colorado despite the voters’ defeat of Proposition 112’s drilling regulations;
3) HB 19-1032 (Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education), mandating comprehensive human sexuality education and appropriating one million dollars annually in grant funds for its dissemination; and
4) HB 19-1177 (Red Flag), creating the ability for a family or household member to petition the court for a temporary extreme risk protection order to prohibit an individual from possessing a firearm.
"The scammers behind this year's recalls have flamed out in spectacular fashion — but not before lining their pockets and loading their databases with money and personal data from unsuspecting Colorado voters," said Curtis Hubbard, a spokesman for Democracy First Colorado. "These efforts have been deceptive to the bitter end, and we are not at all surprised by this outcome, despite recent reports to the contrary. Senator Garcia is serving Pueblo well — a sentiment voters across the district reaffirmed in the thousands of conversations we have had over the last 60 days."
