For the second time in as many weeks Colorado Governor Bill Owens makes a stop in Grand Junction to stump for Referenda C and D. The Governor joined dozens of people both for and against the tax issues for a "honk and wave" at the intersection of 12th Street and North Avenue.
With less than a week to go before election ballots are due the Governor is hoping to persuade voters to pass C and D.
The Mesa County Clerk and Recorder is already reporting a 37% voter turnout and election day is still five days away. Owens says the stage is set for the Western Slope to play a key role in the outcome of this election.
The ballot measures ask voters to lift state revenue limits or TABOR for the next five years. Referendum D would allow the state to issue close to $2.1 billion to fix the state's roads and schools, as well as fund police and fire department pension funds.
