Daily Camera - October 24, 2016

Meg Collins: Where's the money coming from to back 2H?

The Daily Camera recently ran a story that covered the funds being poured into the soda tax. This is the most expensive campaign in Boulder's history — for what? Healthy Boulder Kids, the organization advocating for measure 2H, has raised $724,000 and spent $670,000 to date. This is big, big money.

We know that Healthy Boulder Kids is getting their money from Healthier Colorado, who in turn is getting their money from the Colorado Health Foundation. But I am asking what is the source of those dollars for a local race in a small community. Is it Bloomberg? This is dark money. Boulder residents have the right to know where all this money is being funneled from.

I support personal choice and these taxes don't work.
