Stance on Amendment 66
Jones was opposed to Amendment 66, which was reject by voters in this election. His view was that the increased tax rate would be detrimental to job growth and a burden to tax payers. He also stated that under Amendment 66, "LPS residents will pay substantially more in taxes than our school district will receive back from the program."
What was at stake?
Three seats on the Littleton Public School Board were up for election. Current board members, Board President Bob Colwell, Board Treasurer Renée Howell and Board Assistant Secretary Sue Chandler finished their second four-year terms on the Board and could not run again due to term limits. As a result, all three members elected to the board were new.
