City of Aurora, CO Proposes Giving Corporation Right to Vote

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Libertarians Condemn City of Aurora Granting Voting Priveledges to Gaylord Entertainment Corporation

It’s come to the attention of the Libertarian Party of Colorado that the City of Aurora, Colorado is proposing to allow Gaylord Entertainment the right to vote, in addition to the $300 million dollars worth of incentives they plan on giving Gaylord to build their new private hotel complex in the northern part of the city.

The Libertarian Party of Colorado stands firm against corporations voting in elections. “Giving a corporation the right to vote is really a form of fascism. If we allow corporations to vote, there will be nothing to stop corporations from buying and influencing any elections that they choose.” said Rob McNealy, Media Director of the Libertarian Party of Colorado.

The pertinent section and clause of the “incentive agreement” is on page 56, section 2 where it states: “WITH RESPECT TO ANY TAXABLE OR REAL PERSONAL PROPERTY WITHIN THE AREA OR PROPOSED AREA WHOSE OWNER IS NOT A NATURAL PERSON, ONE NATURAL PERSON WHO IS QUALIFIED TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN THE GENERAL ELECTIONS IN THIS STATE AND IS DESIGNATED BY SUCH OWNER TO VOTE FOR SUCH OWNER, WHETHER SUCH NATURAL PERSON RESIDES IN THE AREA OR PROPOSED AREA OR NOT. SUCH DESIGNATION SHALL BE IN WRITING AND FILED WITH THE CITY CLERK. ONLY ONE SUCH PERSON MAY BE DESIGNATED BY EACH OWNER.”

The Aurora City Council will be having a hearing about the Gaylord Entertainment deal, and we encourage all citizens concerned about this to have their voices heard by testifying.  The public hearing will be held during the upcoming City Council meeting on Monday the 22nd, 2011 at 7:30PM, at the Aurora Municipal Center located at 15151 East Alameda Parkway, Aurora, CO 80012.

About James Crist

How do we stop America's decline? The country is in trouble and we can all feel it. Where did we go wrong? How do we fix it? We now have an auction-based government, for sale to the highest bidder. Politicians have become nothing more than corporate whores and pawns for the rich. If we want our representatives to represent us, let them get their campaign money from us, their constituents. We have to amend the constitution to get the big money out of politics.
