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 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.
