CAMPAIGN TO GIVE CASTLE ROCK VOTERS THE ABILITY TO ELECT THEIR MAYOR KICKS OFF!

CASTLE ROCK, Colorado (April 17, 2017) – After being denied the right to elect a mayor, a growing movement by Castle Rock residents have launched an effort to collect signatures so that voters will have the right to directly elect their mayor.

Currently, a “mayor” is chosen by members of the Castle Rock Town Council without any input from the public. This appointed “mayor” has limited responsibilities and duties that no longer meet the growing needs of the expanding town of Castle Rock.

“It is clear that our town now needs an elected mayor who is an advocate, leader and accountable for the future of Castle Rock,” said petitioner Wayne Harlos.

The Committee for Citizens for Elected Mayor received approval for the November 7th 2017 ballot language on Friday and have now begun collecting signatures. 5,000 signatures are required to put the measure to change the town charter on the ballot.

Castle Rock citizens, interested parties and the press are invited to our campaign launch party this evening.

“It’s simply time that voters have a direct role in choosing who is making decisions concerning the future of Castle Rock. Our community is growing quickly and all of our citizens want a voice in the direction of that growth and how it will affect transportation, housing, business and education,” petitioner Randy Reed said.
