Rotary Conifer Evening Club Meetings
Mornings are difficult for some of us, that is why we have an evening club. Please join us at 5:30 PM every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at St. Laurence Episcopal Church, 26812 Barkley Rd. in Conifer. We have the same interests and ambitions as the morning club, a group that endeavors to help people in our local mountain community and around the world.

PROGRAM:  Colorado’s Legislature is Back in Session
Colorado State Representative Tim Leonard, District 25
Tim.leonard.house@state.co.us
 
Tim Leonard joined us to tell us about his responsibilities as our Colorado State Representative. He is  a member of the Education, State Affairs, Audit, Veterans and Military Affairs Committees.  Tim told us that our state budget increases steadily year over year, that most money issues involve how to apportion funds rather than how much is available.  Colorado’s State Budget is ever increasing: from 15 billion to 27 billion from 2006-2016.  Our budget increased 1 billion a year on average over the last 20 years. 
 
Education, Health Care policy and higher education are the largest areas of increase.  For K-12, the state aid and local funding continues to rise from $1500 to over $6000/pupil.  Local money provides 1/3 of the cost.  Colorado has 900,000 pupils; private schools and home school student numbers are about 35,000.  Tim informed us about the ongoing quest for the best measure of success for evaluating the costs of education.  
There is a new perspective that vocational training is a viable alternative for students who are better suited for a career in the skilled trades.
