The fiscally conservative Colorado Union of Taxpayers — whose “CUT ratings” of lawmakers’ voting records over the years could make or break the conservative credentials claimed by many GOP officeholders — doesn’t have quite the profile it did in the days of its late co-founder and all-around activist behind the scenes, Vern Bickel. Arguably, it doesn’t have as much clout, either, given the other state and national center-right advocacy groups that have stepped into the fray over the decades.
Yet, the 40-plus-year-old “CUT” brand still can draw a flock of faithful tax cutters and budget hawks. It also can bring some notable names in the limited-government movement to the stump, like Republican state Sen. Kevin Lundberg and the Independence Institute’s Jon Caldara.
And the May 22 membership event detailed below might even grow CUT’s base, to boot.
The following e-flyer just came in across the transom with all the information you’ll need to RSVP. Read on:
