During the study session on April 7, 2014, in which the measure was discussed, some city council members asked Winter why she would want to promote voter registration of just renters, and not everyone in the city. Another councilmember, Anita Seitz, even joked at the session that they could include information to vote for her, which further confirmed suspicions the measure is less about civic participation and more about naked political ambition.
“Now is not the time to increase paperwork or regulation on any Colorado business,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado. “This measure is clearly about the Westminster City council members trying to win elections, not about ‘civic participation’ as they claim. Citizens of Westminster should be disappointed in their city councilmembers.”
