NO On 105 TV ads hit airways

don_ament_0.jpg

The No On 105 Coalition’s television ads began airing statewide this week.

TV spots that are currently on the air feature Don Ament, an Iliff farmer and former Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture, and Amber Clay, a farmer and nutrition educator from Erie, where she and her husband, Doug, farm about 1,500 acres of wheat. 

As we and many others with the No On 105 Coalition have been doing in recent weeks, Don and Amber describe their opposition to Prop 105, and explain why it’s a complex, inconsistent and misleading labeling proposal that conflicts with national labeling standards, and would give consumers inaccurate and misleading information.

They also stress that Prop 105 would impose huge new costs and complicated red tape on Colorado farmers, food companies and grocery stores, hurting Colorado’s economy and threatening our vital food export market.
