Guess we proponents of Proposition 112, the safer setback ballot measure, should throw in the towel. Everyone’s against us; elected officials, government agencies and Big Oil and its big money.
But wait a minute! In spite of all this opposition, Initiative 97 garnered 172,000 signatures when only 97,000 were needed to put this on the ballot and 112 is currently polling at 69 percent. Obviously, this is a grassroots movement. The people are listening to medical professionals like the nonpartisan and strictly academic Colorado School of Public Health and the victims of drilling and fracking.
