Last week, Iam27J officially launched our campaign to urge Brighton, Commerce City, and Thornton neighbors to vote "Yes on 3B" this November. The Brighton Standard Blade detailed our launch in their recent edition.

The bond, if passed, would allow for the construction of a new high school and two new elementary schools, middle school expansions and the completion of Brantner Elementary School. A successful bond also would allow the district to address overdue maintenance needs and make crucial safety improvements to buildings across the district.
