While several groups involved in school district tax campaigns filed their finance reports early, the deadline is midnight Tuesday. EdNews will update this story as additional reports are filed.
Supporters of the proposed Jefferson County Schools tax increases have raised more than $145,000 for their campaign to pass measures 3A and 3B, far outpacing the $5,145 raised by an opposition group.
But a group supporting Cherry Creek’s proposed tax hike has raised even more, $157,414, and doesn’t face organized opposition.
And in Aurora, the group supporting that district’s tax proposal, Aurora Citizens for Excellent Schools, raised more than $121,000.
The two Jeffco groups, Citizens for Jeffco Schools and No on 3A/3B, as well as Citizens for Cherry Creek Schools and the Aurora committee all filed campaign finance reports with the secretary of state’s office ahead of Tuesday’s deadline for committees involved in school district elections.
