• The Colorado legislature provides money for funding your local schools.  Every year there seems to be a fight whether the amount is just right, too little, or too much.  But what do taxpayers receive for our tax dollars?  Are students being educated?  Do they have the correct materials to learn?  Are the teachers doing a good job?  What about changes to the curriculum?  What happened after voters rejected Amendment 73 in November?  Lots of questions but we have two excellent speakers to provide some answers.

    Join the North Suburban Republican Forum on Saturday, April 13th from 9:00am-11:00 to hear from both Stan McMinimee and Terry Croy Lewis. Their bios are below.  We meet at Amazing Grace Community Church (541 E 99th Place in Thornton) and   admission is $5 per person.
