Want to see who is contributing to oppose your right to vote? 85% of $94K is from developers!

The Keep Littleton Strong group has accepted over $94,000 from developers, real estate professionals, apartment associations, real estate developers and others from outside the city and some outside the state of Colorado.  The only reason these professional groups are interested in our election in Littleton is because they are afraid if we are successful on March 3rd our efforts will be replicated throughout the state.  And, they are probably right as I have been contacted by citizens in other municipalities that want to do the same.

Take a look at who has contributed – remember we are working with a budget of about $4,000 – a true David and Goliath story.
