Kiowa, CO, May 10, 2022: Today, the Commissioners and other Elected Officers of Elbert County joined 176 elected officials from 37 counties to oppose what might be the largest unfunded mandate ever considered by the Colorado General Assembly. Modeled after the Colorado WINS collective bargaining process that allowed unionization of nearly all the 30,000 state employees at a cost to Colorado taxpayers of over $114M just in the first year, SB22-230 is anticipated to cost medium-sized counties such as ours $436,892 regardless of whether or not employees choose to organize.
