Topic: "Information is Power"
Focus On the Home Front

Multiple layers of local governance are growing almost virally, fueled by the elected and non-elected who are laser focused on expanding their unique mission - municipality, special district, county, regional governance bodies, and state.

As for the citizen, your financial support is non-negotiable, yet your approval or disapproval, sought occasionally at the ballot box, is more often than not, dismissed as irrelevant. What's one to do?

"Information is power," claims Natalie Menten, a Jefco resident who has taken on many projects that challenge lack of financial transparency and accountability at various local levels of government. Currently serving her second four year term on the RTD Board of Directors, she has worked tirelessly to make this struggling transit authority accountable. She will discuss RTD, transit, accountability and transparency as well as tools available to the citizen beyond the ballot box to pursue accountability.

She will also discuss an important initiative to simplify our Colorado State income tax: Fair And Simple Tax (FAST).
