AS MAIL-IN BALLOTS GO OUT, FEDERICO PENA, COLORADO LATINO LEADERS TO OUTLINE WHAT’S AT STAKE FOR LATINOS IN 2012 ELECTION
Will Highlight Importance of Voting During First Week of Vote By Mail, Encourage Latinos To Make Voices Heard in Election
DENVER – TODAY, October 19 at 12:30PM MT, National Campaign Co-Chair Federico Peña, Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia, State Rep. Crisanta Duran and State Rep. Dan Pabon will join Colorado Latinos to outline what’s at stake in the 2012 election – on the economy, education, health care and immigration – while encouraging Hispanics to return their mail-in ballot and make their voices heard.
President Obama has consistently stood up for Colorado Latinos and a strong middle class. He has worked to make college more affordable, improve public schools, keep college more affordable, remove the shadow of deportation from DREAMers and provide access to quality affordable health care.
Mitt Romney, on the other hand, would create a $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthiest on the backs of the middle class, while slashing investments in things like education, turning Medicare into a voucher program and repealing important protections from health insurance abuses.
Romney also said he would veto the DREAM Act and supports the inhumane policy of “self-deportation.”
