CUT Holds Awards Breakfast


Denver, CO October 13, 2002

The Colorado Union of Taxpayers (CUT) held its Annual Awards Breakfast at the Marriott Hotel Southeast on Saturday, October 12th.

The 2002 Taxpayer Champions are: Senator Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado Springs) and Representative Mark Paschall (R-Arvada). The runners-up as Taxpayers Guardians are: Senator Bruce Cairns (R-Aurora) and Representative Bill Cadman (R-Colorado Springs).

The breakfast was highlighted with Senator John Andrews, Senate Minority Leader, acting as Master of Ceremonies, and keynoted by Lewis K. Uhler, founder of the Ntional Tax Limitations Committee.

Mr. Uhler reviewed the struggle for tax and term limitations. The campaigns for these two issues has been long, but the results have been gratifying. Mr. Uhler praised Colorado as a national leader in both tax limitation, through the TABOR Amendment, and term limitations, led by then-Senator Terry Considine.

CUT President Penn Pfeiffner announced the release of the 2002 CUT Ratings of the Colorado Legislature. Copies may be obtained by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope to:

1685 S. Colorado Blvd - Unit "S"
Denver, CO 80222-4040

Look for a "don't miss" evening with the Colorado Union of Taxpayers as they discover the state legislature's intentions for the new session: "What Are They're Going to Do to Us?". The event is tentatively set for Thursday, January 16th at 6:30 p.m. at the American Legion building near 64th & Sheridan. We will invite a senior lobbyist and House and/or Senate leadership. Cost will be between $12 and $20.

Also on CUT's calendar will be another public meeting to review the session after it ends in May, and the Annual Breakfast in September with a speaker of national renown and the release of the CUT Ratings, with awards to the top legislators.
