Americans for Prosperity pulls back campaign against Colorado county


DURANGO — A nonprofit political advocacy group has withdrawn its campaign against a Colorado county’s proposed land-use codes.

The Durango Herald reports Americans for Prosperity Deputy State Director Tamra Farah says the group would pull back its campaign against La Plata County after announcing last month it would take an active role to influence the county’s proposed land-use codes, which the group says are harmful to farmers and ranchers and infringe on individual property rights.

The politically conservative advocacy group launched a series of digital ads asking people to sign a petition against the land-use codes.

But when La Plata County staff members and commissioners announced last month they would put the land-use codes on hold to address serious concerns raised by residents, Americans for Prosperity decided to end its local efforts.
