Election Guide 2013 Intro: Serving the voters of Boulder County is our privilege

By Joel Dyer

Producing Boulder Weekly’s annual vote guide is an enlightening experience for all of us who work on this special edition.

For months we do research on issues, questions and measures that will eventually be on the ballots of Boulder County residents.

And when the time finally comes for that quarter of a million or so ballots to be mailed out, we finally have the privilege of offering our analysis and endorsements to the public.

We use the word “privilege” because it is the most accurate description for what we feel during this long research process. It is the result of both taking what we do very seriously and the humbling realization that our analysis and endorsements will make a difference in the outcomes of things as important as who will be our elected representatives and what issues will pass or fail.

We never cease to marvel every year come November, as this peaceful transfer of power takes place in towns and cities all across the nation.

We also have the privilege of getting to know the candidates and the people behind the organizations that either support or oppose various ballot initiatives. While we obviously don’t agree with or endorse all of these folks, we honestly admire each and every one of them and salute their willingness to serve the public.

So here it is, Boulder Weekly’s analysis and endorsements of every issue and candidate in the county. We hope you find it useful and we thank all of our readers for the privilege of serving them in such an important manner.

Please take the time to vote.
