Having seen Jared Polis’s misleading campaign ad attacking Cary Kennedy for the umpteenth time, I am sharing some direct insight about his claim that he “led” the effort to increase funding for every school in Colorado – and from where the actual leadership came. I was the campaign manager for that effort – Amendment 23. Cary Kennedy conceived the amendment, wrote it and led the effort to explain it, debate it and advocate for it. Working with a crew of tenacious women, they fought for and won the Amendment 23 election. Cary’s ability as citizen leader was clear: She identified a problem, identified a solution and built momentum to fix it.
