Each year, the Colorado Union of Taxpayers (CUT) rates members of the legislature as friends or foes of Colorado taxpayers. I am quite disappointed to see that for 2012 my own state representative from House District 4 in northwest Denver, Dan Pabon, was second-to-last with a CUT rating of 3.57 percent. Seriously Dan, only second-to-last? Kinda dropped the ball there didn’t you? I’d have thought you would at least match Rep. John Soper’s 0.00 percent rating for a last place tie. But I’ll go ahead and give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you accidentally voted the wrong way on a bill.
Anyway, as one of your constituents, I’d like to ask that you re-double your efforts for next year’s legislative session and see if you can’t get that CUT rating down to last place. I know the competition is stiff, but make House District 4 proud.
