Update: Audio embedded
The campaign for Amendment 49, the Ethical Standards initiative, has released a new 30-second radio ad featuring former U.S. Senator Hank Brown:
Here’s the text of the ad:
Both the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post urge you to vote Yes on Amendment 49. 49 stops government from being the bagman for special interests and lobbyists. This is Hank Brown, and I’m thrilled that nearly every newspaper across Colorado agrees: Yes on 49. The Pueblo Chieftain, the Grand Junction Sentinel, the Colorado Springs Gazette, and yes, the Boulder Camera, just to name a few. Join me and Bill Owens in voting Yes on 49. 49 keeps lobbyists in line. Paid for by EthicalStandardsNow.com.
I’m not sure if there is any other initiative on this year’s Colorado ballot that has received such a wide range of major newspaper endorsements.
(Full disclosure: I also happen to work for the Independence Institute, which has backed the Ethical Standards Now campaign.)
