Pueblo scholarships executive wants to boost individual awards
The executive director of the Pueblo Hispanic Education Foundation said if Ballot Issue 1A passes next month, it will be very instrumental in helping the foundation restructure, improve and expand its cannabis scholarship program.
Come November 6th, voters in Pueblo County will see a ballot question asking to raise the sales tax of recreational cannabis. 1/3 of those funds raised would towards supporting a scholarship program for students within the county.
It's called Ballot Initiative 1A, and one of it's goals is increase funding for the Pueblo Scholarship Program.
When voters in Pueblo County open their ballots this week, they will find only one countywide issue to vote on this election cycle. Question 1A asks for a change in the way the County collects taxes on retail cannabis, and the outcome could have a big impact on how the community funds a popular scholarship program.
