OpEd: proudly championed the state's mill levy freeze
Let's pause for a minute to remember the issues that Kennedy is trying to avoid talking about, and why she is losing in every poll taken to date.

- First, she authored the budget-busting state spending mandate known as
Amendment 23, a move which has plunged Colorado into fiscal chaos through its failed pledge to improve our state's public schools.
- Second, she proudly championed the state's mill levy freeze, hiking our property taxes by nearly
$4 billion just when Coloradans can least afford it.
- Third and fourth, and honestly too many times to count, she helped Governor Ritter disguise tax hikes as "fee" hikes so voters couldn't have a say in whether we should pay more to government--
a questionable move for a leader charged with protecting our voice from other forces in state government.
Colorado Tax Tracks: see how taxes are spent, online
Cary has followed through on her pledge to make Colorado's financial information the most transparent and accessible it has ever been by putting the state's checkbook, balance sheet and investment portfolio online. Most recently,
Cary launched an online tool that allows each Coloradan to see how their tax dollars support different state programs.
The interactive website, called Colorado Tax Tracks, is the first state website of its kind in America.
It gives people detailed information on an individual or family basis about how their state tax dollars are used. Information is broken down so that taxpayers can see what they spend on nearly
one hundred functions of government, from clean drinking water inspections to disease control.
