GABE EVANS CALLS ON WELD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TO REJECT PROPOSED TAX HIKE

Nov 20, 2023 | Press Release

FORT LUPTON, CO – State Representative and Republican Congressional District 8 candidate Gabe Evans called on the Weld County Commissioners to abstain from their proposed property tax hike, which is being presented on the Weld County Council’s November 20 agenda.

“Weld County commissioners are considering a Denver-style tax hike to grow government. If Weld County is to remain a conservative bastion in Democrat-dominated Colorado, this property tax hike must be defeated,” observed Evans. “The proposed mill levy hike would violate the county’s charter and increase the mill levy in 2024 from 11.8 mills to 14.038, a 19% property tax hike.

“Just two weeks ago, 71% of Weld County voters rejected Prop HH, Colorado Democrats’ plan to raid TABOR. That was an emphatic statement by Weld County voters in favor of lower taxes. Why are three Weld County commissioners now rallying around a plan to increase taxes on Weld County citizens?

“My message to the Weld County Commission and Council? Maintain Weld County as a conservative beacon of low taxes and limited government in Colorado. This proposed property tax hike is a betrayal of the Weld County citizens. Vote No.”

The Weld County Council is scheduled to take up the property tax hike at 6:30 p.m. tonight.
