We are writing to clear the record on the protests we filed in regard to the Referendum Petition. We did not file protests against the Petition. We filed protests in support of the sufficiency of the Petition. We contested the rejection of specific signatures and the rejection of 4 petition sections. We also protested the number of signatures required for sufficiency. This number is based on the total votes cast by Wheat Ridge citizens in the last gubernatorial election. Of the fourteen precincts that include parts of Wheat Ridge, several also include areas outside of Wheat Ridge such as Mountain View, Lakeside and unincorporated Jefferson County as far west as McIntyre Street. The hundreds of votes cast by these non-Wheat Ridge voters was wrongly included by the County in the total on which the signature requirement was based. We withdrew our protests after it became clear that no protests would be filed against the Referendum Petition and the sufficiency of the Petition was not in question.
